Hopefully, you’ll eventually be able to upgrade your apartment and business, but can you sell your existing properties? Here’s everything you need to know about property management in GTA Online.

Unfortunately, not at the moment. Currently, there is no direct way to sell any property you own in GTA Online. While the sad reality is that you’ll never get all your money back, the good news is that there is a way to recoup some of that hard-earned cash.

An apartment building in GTA Online

Players can own a maximum of six properties in San Andreas county at one time, and to get some of your money back, you’ll need to swap your expensive building for a cheaper one.

While you won’t get all your money back, you will be refunded the difference between the value of your old property, and the price you pay for the new one. For example, if you buy a $2 million apartment and exchange it for a $250,000 one, you’ll get $1.75 million back.

To do this:

  1. Open your cellphone and go to the internet web browser
  2. Go to Dynasty 8 Real Estate on the ‘Money and Services’ menu.
  3. Choose a property that you want to buy. If you want to make as much money as possible, select the cheapest one.
  4. Purchase the building, and select which property you want to sell to make room for the new one.
  5. The money will be deposited into your account, and you’ll no longer be able to access the building you sold.

Unfortunately, this is the only way to get money back from properties in GTA Online right now. While it’s not ideal, it’s better than being stuck with a building you don’t want.

Hopefully, Rockstar Games can update this system to be more straightforward in the future. Otherwise, players could be waiting as long as GTA 6’s release.
