[NEEDS INPUT] Simoleon Exploit with Earbuds

[ Edited ]
★ Apprentice

Product: The Sims 4
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number?
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All except My First Pet Stuff
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Order the earbuds (from Sims 4 Fitness Stuff Pack) for 100 simoleons, click on them from the inventory and place them down, then go into buy mode and sell them for 220 simoleons.
What happens when the bug occurs? The earbuds sell more than the double for what they were bought for, which makes it an easy way to get money without ever needing to work or craft anything in the game, it's basically a cheat.
What do you expect to see? The earbuds to have a lower selling price, after they were ordered through the computer.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure

Here's two pictures that show how the value of the earbuds is higher than what sims pay for them when ordering them through the computer. I'm sure it's a bug. It's an easy way to exploit the game without using cheats to get a lot of money.
