GTA Vice City Definitive Edition and original gameplay comparison

What are properties in GTA Vice City?

Housing properties are divided into two categories in the game, Safehouses and Assets. Safehouses are scattered across the map providing saving points, vehicle storage of different sizes, and in some cases, weapons for you to equip.

Assets will be available after completing the mission "Shakedown", and also involve a variety of services that can generate profit for you. However, for you to achieve that you will need to finish a questline related to the Asset involved, and each one has its own chain of missions.

What property should you buy first in GTA Vice City?

The first of our recommended properties to buy would be 3321 Vice Point, located at the very north of the east island.

GTA_VC_Recommended_001

Not only is it a cheap property, easy to buy early into the game, but also provides a save point on the opposite side of Vice Beach, so it becomes very practical in case you don't want to waste time traveling back to Ocean View Hotel to save your game.

GTA_VC_Recommended_002

As an alternative, you could also aim a bit higher and buy either the Links View Apartment or El Swanko Casa, since those have vehicle storage, which can prove useful if you want to own different cars - or just want to look really, really cool.

If you have money to spare, you can extend yourself into buying the expensive Hyman Condo, which is worth a shocking $14,000 but provides storage for up to 8 vehicles and has its own helipad - perfect for storing a helicopter making it a very useful property in the long run.
