If you're trying to find out how to buy a house in GTA Online, then you'll be looking to start or expand your property empire and acquire a place where you can escape the general madness often found on the streets of Los Santos and Blaine County. This personal retreat will not only give you a place to change your outfit or put your feet up for a while in GTA Online, but a lot of properties also feature a garage where you can store the latest additions to your fleet of vehicles without risking damage or destruction from other players.

Depending on how much money you want to spend, you can get yourself a shack in the sticks, a house in the hills, or a lavish tower apartment in the heart of the city. Whatever your aspirations for living arrangements are, here's everything you need to know about how to buy a house in GTA Online.

The main method to buy a house in GTA Online is to open up the Eyefind internet browser on your phone, then expand the Money and Services section on the top bar. This gives you access to a number of websites where you can purchase a house or other property. The types of properties available from the different websites are as follows:

  • Dynasty 8 Real Estate - Garages, Houses, Apartments
  • Dynasty 8 Executive - Offices
  • Maze Bank Foreclosures - Clubhouses, Bunkers, Hangars, Facilities, Nightclubs, Arcades

Once you've decided on the type of property you want to invest in, go to the appropriate site to browse through the options available. Make your choice and click 'buy', apply any customisation options if available, the hit 'purchase property' to seal the deal. If you're buying a house in GTA Online and already own a similar property, you'll be given the choice of trading in your existing home or adding the new one separately – you can own several houses at once, so it's up to you if you want to expand your housing empire or just focus on one place. With the transaction completed, you can then visit your new home and get yourself nicely settled in.

The other, somewhat less efficient way to buy a house in GTA Online is to physically go to the property and approach the For Sale sign. This will then make a prompt appear giving you the option to buy the property direct, bypassing any website browsing. There's not really any benefit to doing this method unless you happen to be passing a property you like the look of, but it's always there as an option if you decide to use it.
