GTA 5 Property Buying

There are many properties and real estate in the game that can be purchased by the three characters Franklin, Trevor, and Michael. However, some properties are exclusive to a specific character. Of the 25 properties, there are 8 personal storage facilities for various vehicles ordered on the internet. You can also purchase helipads, classy vehicle garages, and a personal marina ship for each character.

You can start purchasing the property after completing Trevor’s “Nervous Ron” mission, but in order to purchase properties for all characters, you will need to complete the “Friends Reunited” mission.
