Buying and selling real estate is such an awful hassle. It took my parents over a year to sell off their old house, and from what they told me, it was absolutely exhausting. I’m not sure why you’d want to subject yourself to that in GTA Online, but then again, at least in a game it’s a much faster, simpler process. Here’s how to sell your property in GTA Online.
In GTA Online, you can own the rights to pretty much any building in Los Santos through the Dynasty 8 Real Estate company. What you do with those buildings is your own business, but buying one of the larger ones can cost several hundred thousand dollars at least. If you’re a crafty investor, however, you can sell those massive buildings and pocket the net profit. Though, to be more specific, you can “exchange” one building for another and keep the difference.
How to Sell Your Property in GTA Online
Before we get into the specifics of this process, there’s something we need to establish: ownership limits. You’re only allowed to own a specific amount of specific kinds of properties in Los Santos. Those amounts are as follows:
- 6 Apartments/Garages/Houses
- 1 Motorcycle Clubhouse
- 5 Motorcycle Club Businesses
- 1 Office
- 3 CEO Garages
- 1 Vehicle Warehouse
- 5 Crate Warehouses
- 1 Yacht
- 1 Bunker
- 1 Hanger
These limits are important to know, as you can’t “sell” a property unless you own as many of a particular kind of property as possible.
Here’s how selling your property in GTA Online works: open up the internet browser on your phone and visit the Dynasty 8 website. It’s under “Money and Services” if you don’t have it bookmarked. Choose one of the properties that are available for purchase, preferably a cheap one. If that property is categorized under a property type that you already own the maximum amount of, you’ll be given the option to sell one of your existing properties to make room for the new one. This is the only way to do this; you can’t just sell properties vanilla.
As for how this makes you money, all you need to do is exchange an expensive property you own with a cheap property, and the difference in their prices will be deposited into your bank account. It’s a bit of an unwieldy system, but it can be very lucrative if you do it right. Kinda like real-life real estate, actually.
