How to earn money from your properties in GTA 5
Each real estate a player owns will grant you weekly income, which varies according to the type of property bought. Some of these are linked to story events, and certain properties have additional missions that require being taken to prevent depletion of your income rate.
You need to keep a close eye on your purchased GTA V real estate; otherwise, you might not get any payments to your banks.
Now that some of you have already done that, you need to go to your designated properties or real estate and complete their missions. These missions are titled “Property Management.” For more help on that you can read our Property Missions Guide.
