Grand Theft Auto V Properties Guide explains what buildings you should buy in Los Santos in order to make more money, and what properties you should avoid purchasing if you wish to save the money you have earned so far.

Unlike stocks, the Grand Theft Auto 5 Properties are investments that become profitable in time; however, since some of them require more time than others, you should not invest in them unless you have enough funds at your disposal.

A GTA 5 property can be considered profitable based on several factors. The first factor is the price you need to pay in order to purchase the building.

The second factor represents the weekly and annual income a building generates; which helps you calculate the amount of time required to recover your investment.

The most profitable buildings in GTA V are those from which you recover your funds in less than two years. Nevertheless, some buildings need more than 2 years, while others require even more time to generate the money you have spent on them.

The final category includes the properties that don’t generate any income, but they help you by unlocking different activities you can perform, or those that offer discounts.

For example, the Towing Impound in GTA 5 generates a low amount of money on a weekly basis, but it allows you to tow cars and awards you with $500 per car; meaning that you can recover your investment faster by towing as many cars as you can.

Another example is Los Santos Customs which is relatively an expensive property with low income (weekly and annually). Los Santos Customs, however, offers discounts and after you purchase it you will be able to upgrade Franklin’s cars for free. Normally, these upgrades cost; therefore, Los Santos Customs is a profitable investment in GTA 5.

Some GTA V properties can be purchased only after you unlock them, such as the Towing Impound, and some buildings require specific characters.

The GTA 5 guide below reveals useful information that will eventually help you invest your money in the most profitable businesses available in Los Santos.

In GTA 5, the properties also count if you want to get 100% completion, but you only have to buy 5 of them. There are 25 buildings in Los Santos.
