As mentioned in the introductory chapter , GTA Online allows you to buy your own home and there is a wide choice. In case you were wondering, yes: this procedure is valid for all platforms, therefore also to learn how to buy a house on GTA 5 for PS4 (obviously in online mode).

To proceed, therefore, enter GTA Online , open the character’s mobile phone (e.g. arrow upwards on PS4 ), select the Internet icon and go to the FINANCES AND SERVICES section . After that, access the website of the Dinasty 8 real estate agency (the penultimate one from top to bottom) and click on View property list .

Now the time has come to take a look at the map and the proposals . The houses with the PERSONALIZED inscription have various styles of furniture , which can be chosen at will. 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 home you are interested in, simply click on Buy property to make it your own. In case you have chosen to buy a luxury apartment, you may be asked to choose the style of the interior.

In this way, simply press the appropriate button that appears on the screen (e.g. right arrow on PS4 ) and confirm .

For completeness of information, you must know that, if you have already purchased a house on GTA Online previously, you will be able to exchange the old home . To give you a concrete example, I went from a Vinewood Hills villa to the more expensive suite of the Eclipse Tower skyscraper . I had paid the villa a little over $ 500,000 and, in exchange, I managed to get 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 requested. In short, keep in mind also this possibility when buying houses on GTA Online.

Also remember that to buy a home, you must have sufficient funds in the bank (and not in your “personal wallet”). To deposit the money in the bank, just use one of the various ATM points scattered around the map or open your character’s mobile phone , select the Internet icon , go to the FINANCES AND SERVICES section and access the Maze Bank website (the last from top to bottom). At this point, press first on Main Menu and then on Deposit . Finally, select the amount to be deposited and press Yes .

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, in some cases, access 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 you can buy independently , that is, the icons of the “houses” that appear on the map, you need to know that those are not houses, but work activities . I refer, 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 in reality it is 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 revenue for $ 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 (e.g. right arrow on PS4 ) and confirm the purchase .

A day in GTA 5 is equivalent to about 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 dollars of initial investment is not like that as difficult as it might seem.

It must be said that, by purchasing The Hen House, the manager may occasionally call you to help him in various “management” activities (eg attackers who want to rob the bar). In any case, it won’t be anything too difficult.

The ability to buy The Hen House unlocks after finishing the “Nervous Ron” mission . So keep in mind that some buildings may not be available for purchase at certain times in Story mode.
