How to Buy Businesses

To purchase a business or vehicle storage, simply walk up to the for sale sign with the correct character and adequate amount of cash. Note that while most businesses will be available to purchase after the Nervous Ron mission, some businesses may not yet be available.

Also consider that, while all businesses will be profitable over time, it can take an extremely long time to see any return on your investments. If you don't plan on sinking a significant amount of time into playing GTA 5, consider only buying vehicle storage and properties that give you the perks you want. If you want to speed up time to see faster returns, you can continuously save in a safehouse (doing so with Franklin passes the most amount of in-game time).

Earn Passive Income

If you want to make money while your characters sleep, buying properties is the way to go. While the weekly revenue is better on some properties than others, consider making a purchase in the early game so you can earn more and more money over time.

How to Make Money

Buy Vehicle Storage for Your Extra Rides

Most safehouses only come with a garage big enough for two or three cars, so you'll want to get some vehicle storage as your collection starts to grow. This will become more important as you invest money in your rides by tuning them up.
