Now it’s time to take a look at the map and the proposals . The homes with the CUSTOM wording have various styles of furniture , which can be chosen to your liking. The prices are variable, ranging, for example, from $ 500,000 for a villa in more than $ 1 million for a luxury apartment / penthouse. Once you have selected the house you are interested in, simply click on Buy Property to make it yours. In case you have chosen to buy a luxury apartment, you may be asked to choose the style of the interior.

For the sake of completeness, you should know that if you have already purchased a house on GTA Online before, you will be able to trade in the old house . To give you a concrete example, I went from a villa in Vinewood Hills to the most expensive suite in the Eclipse Tower . I had paid for the villa a little over $ 500,000 and, by trading it in, I was able to obtain a “discount” of $ 285,500 on the purchase of the penthouse suite 3 of the Eclipse Tower. In this way, I paid “only” $ 814,500, instead of the $ 1,100,000 usually required. In short, also take this possibility into account when buying homes on GTA Online.

How to buy a house in GTA 5 offline
In case you are wondering how to buy houses in GTA Story Mode , you should know that it is not possible to buy houses “manually”.
In fact, during the adventure, Franklin, Michael and Trevor will have the opportunity to improve their lives and access, in some cases, to luxurious homes . All you have to do is simply follow the GTA 5 Story . I don’t want to spoil you, but you will see that you will be satisfied with the houses that the single player mode will lead you to “buy”.
As for the buildings that you can buy independently , that is the icons of the “houses” that appear on the map, you must know that those are not houses, but work activities . I am referring, for example, to the possibility of buying the taxi company, the Downtown Cab Co , or The Hen House (the name might suggest a house, but it is actually a bar).
To give you a concrete example, I will examine The Hen House . Well, this building, located in Paleto Bay , costs $ 80,000 , but is able to guarantee weekly income of $ 920 . To buy it, just go to the place, approach the sales sign (the one with the Dinasty 8 logo ), press the appropriate button that appears on the screen (eg right arrow on PS4 ) and confirm the purchase .
One day in GTA 5 equates to around 48 minutes in the real world and certain situations, such as missions, are able to advance time even faster, so I can assure you that recovering the $ 80,000 initial investment is not the case. difficult as it might seem.
It must be said that, by purchasing The Hen House, the manager may call you from time to time to help him out in various “management” activities (eg criminals who want to rob the bar). In any case, it will not be too difficult.
The ability to buy The Hen House unlocks after finishing the “Nervous Ron” mission . Please keep in mind that some buildings may not be available for purchase at certain times in the Story mode.
