Since quite a lot of people might have just gotten the game, some help or insight from fellow gamers might be useful
Here is my list of my favorite locations for businesses
- Document forgery: I haven't gotten one, since it barely makes any money so no opinion here but probably the cheapest one (650k)
- Weed farm: San Chianski Mountain Range (715k)
- Counterfeit cash factory: Grand Senora Desert (845k)
- Meth lab: Grand Senora Desert (910k)
- Cocaine Lockup: Alamo Sea (975k)
All the cheapest locations, they are located in the top middle map around the lake, most convienent for sales and resupply runs.
Main rule is that you have to invest a lot of money to make money, getting the upgrades is more important then it might seem
I'm at my second location for the nightclub after doing some research it was mentioned as one of the best locations for the nightclub, however it can be quite expensive for a start up so I'm still gonna stick with the area from my first nightclub, I think it's great because there is lots of room to land a helicopter, planes as well but a bit more tricky. Right next to the airport so it's easy to get a helicopter if you have to go far. The Del Perro nightclub I chose because it's close to the middle of the map and was right across the office, don't like that I have to land my aircraft further away, just as my vehicle spawns a bit further away as well.
1. LSIA nightclub (1.135m)
2. Del Perro nightclub (1.645m)
I did a lot of research about this and it seems like Fort Zancudo Hangar 3499 is the best, easy to land planes in front of it, only thing you have to look out for is jets that are taking off. This also gives you access to the fort, access to 2 lazer jets (they won't like you if you take it but it's fast so who cares right? ) you will be able to fly over the area without getting stars as well (however sometimes you still get cops on you). This one costs 2.650m
For this one I think you're favorite playstyle is important. I've bought the Wonderama one, grapeseed area (near the big lake, 1.565m) It's close to the McKenzie airfield so easy access to an aircraft, since I do a lot of work for the MC businesses it's also in the same area so that's nice.
Paleto Bay (1.235m) is possibly for free with twitch prime, it's closer to the bunker so if you enjoy doing the gunrunning missions you might like that location, there is a decent spot to land a helicopter close to the garage entrance. After some research I've found that people like Videogeddon in La Mesa (1.875m) because it's the closest to the casino, has decent entrances and a spot to spawn your personal aircraft closeby
As most of you I've gotten the criminal enterprise starter pack so I got a free office, a free bunker and a free MC clubhouse, the clubhouse or office are not really important imo, the bunker seems a bit out of the way but if it's free it's not really a concern. Might look for other options at some point in the future. Facilities is another thing I have to invest in, to give you my favorites location I will have to do some more research myself.
There are lots of websites available with information about anything you could ask for, only after doing a lot of research I managed to really get the hang of the game and make a lot of money. I also enjoy reading other people their opinion on reddit for example. Mainly you got to do what feels right for you, cheap is not always bad, just as the most expensive might not be the best option.
I apologize for the possible bad grammar (it's 1am when I'm writing this), hopefully it helps give some insight, I'm curious to hear other people their opinion and I'm happy to help anyone who has questions about the game.
