It's quite rough making money now though, it's enough for day-to day operations, but if one wants a car and the mods for them it becomes a task to get enough money. But with a little patience and mixing up stuff to do it will be more fun to play than grinding.
I reached level 100 this weekend, yay! Now on to 120 and the minigun
I'm sure you alreay know, but just in case, you don't need to get the 400k one if you don't want to, same apartment interior can be had for much less, starting from 205k. I got mine for 253k. It's just all about location and the view to outside.
You will want the high end apartment though, for when heists come out and you need a planning room.
Don't forget it's not all about the views, but about the location as well.. You want all the important shops to be close to you for convenience. I found that Weazel Plaza has the best location so far, as I said earlier, all the important shops are very close to it..
I have Richards Majestic, apt 51 right next to it, only 253k, with great view over the golf course and the pier rides/ocean.
Can't beat that central location so close to mod shop and everything else.
Nice catching up with you Mark! Yeah, the mission later on pay much better. In general Lamar, Simeon and Gerald don't pay that much. Once you level up, you get missions from Ron, Trevor, Lester and Martin which pay a lot more.
