Can You Sell Property in GTA 5 Online?
Unfortunately, you cannot actually sell property in GTA 5 Online. Regardless of whether you have a garage or an apartment that you want to sell, you cannot directly do so. You also cannot directly sell the money-generating properties you own in the game. After you buy a bunker or a nightclub, you can only get money from the business from its means of passive income.
Luckily, you can at least exchange properties. When you do hit the max number of properties you can own, you can at least swap some around to get something you want.

Want to downsize your fancy penthouse and go into a more affordable apartment? You can get an offer within the game if you want to exchange, which is a decent form of compensation despite the obvious financial loss.
Here’s how to exchange properties:
- Open your in-game smartphone; click on the Internet tab.
- Go to the Dynasty 8 Real Estate site.
- Select View Property Listings.
- Look at the list of available properties that come up on the screen. You will see their given exchange prices or empty slots.
- If you select an exchange fee, you will get the money deposited into your account just after completing the transaction.
Exchanging a business is a little more difficult. You will probably own just one of each type of business. If you opt to downgrade or upgrade, you will be forced to perform an exchange. You might be better off renovating your business to get it more to your liking, so that’s something to consider.
You’ll need to use the Internet app on your in-game phone. Go to Maze Bank Foreclosures and look for the property you want. You’ll be able to see the properties you already own, too. If you hold stock in a particular building, you need to offload the stocks before you exchange the building.
Is Exchanging Properties Worth It?
You know how to sell property in GTA 5 Online now and that it’s a matter of exchange. Is it worth it? For the most part, it’s better to just modify your business to get it the way you want it and let its passive income roll in. But, if you really feel the need to downsize or upsize, you have that option.
