There’s no crazier simulation of real-life than Grand Theft Auto. I mean, you can’t really do everything like this in real life but it’s damn fun to go on a spree in a virtual world.
And as such, one of the more engaging parts of the game is buying the best new cars and properties to live out your fantasy dream life.
In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City you could buy a ton of properties from safe houses to businesses that generated revenue. This was a powerful game mechanic and it’s still used in GTA games to this day.
I want to offer a list of all the best properties you’ll find in GTA Vice City. You’ll be able to decide which ones to beeline for and save your hard earned in-game cash to splash out on.
15. 3321 Vice Point
Rough and ready, 3321 Vice Point is probably the first property you’ll want to get your hands on.
And also one you’ll likely forget about as you progress through the game and start making real money.
Without any garage space to store your new ride, this property is best used as an easy save point and home-base to keep you going in the early stages of your GTA gaming session.
14. Skumhole Shack
Next up we have the aptly named Skumhole shack.
To call this property a dive would probably be an understatement.
This straight up shack is a no-frills place to lay your head next to a seedy biker bar while you’re still a novice in the game when finding money in hard to come by.
The reason this one takes a better position on the list than the slightly more upmarket 3321 Vice Point is because there are guns to be found under the stairs upon entering the property. You know, should you need a top up on the weapons front before heading out for a day of fun & frolic in Vice City.
13. 1102 Washington Street
Another less-than-glamorous apartment suite, 1102 Washington street has the advantage of being close to the water for those times you fancy diving straight in or finding a fast boat to get your hands on.
As for the property itself, the aesthetic is lacking and still isn’t the kind of apartment you’d want to bring anyone back to if you have any self-respect. But it will definitely serve you as a solid save point and base to get you started out.
12. Ocean Heights Apartment
Moving up in the world you’ll probably find yourself wanting a garage to store your fresh new wheels to keep them safe and out of harm’s way.
Fortunately the Ocean Heights apartment, while still a long way from being ideal, has a single parking space you can use to make sure your cars aren’t liable to being towed away after you go on a violent spree or embark on an epic police chase.
11. Links View Apartments
Approaching the last of the drab apartments we have the Links View apartment complex.
This is still a very much uninspired property, but again comes with a highly valuable garage parking space which will prove vital early on in the game.
A whole $1000 less than the previous apartment complex, this one offers slightly more value and is also located near a large golf course in case you get an itch to play a round of the sport. Or you can hunt around those grounds to pick up a golf club for, you know… reasons.
10. Hyman Condo
Upping the stakes now we have the Hyman Condo. This makes the top 10 primarily for its many parking spaces – boasting three double garages.
Fitting for that moment in the game when you become a baller and own several nice cars that are worth keeping a hold of and storing, doesn’t matter of you stole them or what.
This Condo makes up for what it lacks in visual appeal with its high utility.
On top of being able to park your cherished cars at this crib, there is also the chance of finding weapons here whenever you come back meaning it serves as a general storehouse and a first legitimate base of operations.
9. Print Works
A steep price tag for this large property prevents it from taking a better position on this list. At $70,000 you’re going to need to save up for this one – or pull off an amazing bank heist.
Much like the popular Netflix series Money Heist, the idea of basing up at this property is so you can be in a position to benefit from the money printed on a daily basis.
Bringing in as much as $8000 a day, it’s very possible you’ll start to see a lot from your investment in this one which can make it a worthwhile purchase if you want a consistent stream of income.
8. Cherry Poppers Ice Cream Factory
A humorous addition to your real estate portfolio, the Cherry Poppers ice cream factory isn’t a steal at the hefty price tag of $20,000.
Yet that shouldn’t stop you from buying this property which can generate $3000 a day of passive income for you to benefit from.
Besides the obvious perk of generating money from the factory without doing anything, this property is a good investment purely by virtue of it being one of the more amusing properties available in Vice City.
7. Kaufman Cabs
Named after actor Andy Kaufman, Kaufman cabs isn’t an amazing property but has some perks that will make it worth the investment.
At an eye-watering $40,000 it might not be the cheapest asset available. However this one will generate $5,000 for every pickup completed which is nothing to scoff at.
As well as having this financial benefit, Kaufman cabs makes the cut because it’s close to some feisty gangs.
While in real life this would be less than ideal, in Vice City this means plenty of opportunity to start a turf war and get in firing practice or even hand to hand combat if you’re brave enough. This also means if you come out alive you get some nice weapons from the ordeal.
6. Pole Position
A large strip club with a clever name, $30,000 is the price tag on this property.
As well as giving you access to the debaucherous activities inside the property, this one will generate a tempting $4,000 a day making it a great value for your hard-earned bucks to go towards investing.
Picking up the only strip club in the city will feel like a big coup and is an essential purchase for any Vice City fan.
5. Boat Yard
At $10,000 the Boat yard is a great early investment that will generate $2,000 a day to fuel your escapades around Vice City.
A very affordable property that’s unique by being right on the water, unfortunately the boat yard doesn’t allow for the storing of boats which would make it one of the best properties.
But it is pretty neat just to own something like this either way.
Rule the sea and land with this asset and fool yourself into believing you’re a big deal with this bargain.
4. Elswanko Casa
While it may lack some of the functionality of some of the other properties and assets, this mansion will make you feel like you’ve finally made it in Vice city.
At a modest $8,000 the Elswanko Casa will feel like a steal as you live the high life.
Sporting a large swimming pool to practice your swim stroke, and a garage to store your flashy sports car, this property should be your first taste of living the American dream.
The kruger assault rifle is also available for pickup on the roof for when you need to go take care of business after chilling at the pad.
3. Sunshine Autos
This should be your first taste of some real serious income from a property. As Sunshine Autos will set you back $50,000 but will bring in a cool $6,000 a day.
An exciting proposition to get on your way to building a real fortune.
The main perk of this property though – as the name alludes to – is the cars.
Giving you access to several cars worthy of your time, you won’t regret getting ahold of this one – it’s the asset that keeps on giving.
After all, GTA is largely about the vehicles so purchase this property and it’ll the only one you’ll need to store your(at this point) large collection of cars.
2. The Malibu Club
Based on the iconic Babylon Club from the cult classic Scarface, the Malibu club is by far the hottest property in the city.
A pure statement of wealth, the club doesn’t come cheap with a price tag of $120,000.
Once you’ve accumulated enough wealth from terrorizing the citizens of Vice City and committing your fair share of crime, you’ll want to splash the cash on something ostentatious like the Malibu Club.
Not only will it generate $10,000 a day for you to roll around in, you’ll be able to recreate the epic scene from the movie and unload a whole cartridge of your assault rifle while shouting profanities at the top of your lungs. Just another day in Vice City, really.
1. Interglobal Film Studio
The Malibu Club maybe the hottest property within the borders of the city, but the Interglobal film studio is the best property in the game.
Based on prawn island, this one is actually a bit cheaper at only $60,000. And once you purchase this property you will own a large portion of the island which is undeniably awesome.
Based on the world-renowned Universal Studios, this film studio is 100% worth the investment just so you have your very own island retreat and a huge space to call your own.
With several conspiracy theories about sharks, megalodons, and UFOs surrounding this mythical film studio, there is no more intriguing investment you’ll want to own immediately.
