Should I buy a house in Paleto bay?

Isn't a yacht up there with opting for chrome rims then deciding you like the stock ones better on the top 10 list of buyer's remorse?

 

I don't know, I don't own yacht, but, based on what I've heard, I'd probably be fine doing without.

Its my favorite place to park my yacht if I get the second spot closest to town

Yeah, kinda. I like dogfighting though, and people often fly their planes nearby,  probably because of its proximity to Zancudo

 

If not, it takes like a minute or two to fly to Los Santos, no stress

Why shouldn't you in the first place? Nice quiet place and the only downside is that you will get a 6 car garage, not a 10 car one. If that doesn't bother you, then go for it.

I owned the house that had it's fountain stolen for a couple years then traded it in for a 10 car garage. Bought my yacht for the sole purpose of having a high end property in Paleto Bay. It also didn't take up a property space, which still mattered then. 3 years later, or however long, I haven't moved it. Both in solo & public sessions, it's my favorite part of the map... If you like the wilderness and the ocean, but without all the makeup you get in the Vespucci region, it's perfect. You're getting a view either direction. It has all the important shops very close. The police station has a heli spawn & the beach usually has some jet skis. If you wanna get into the city but need to handle some business real quick, just hop on the train. There's some solid positions for combat if the wrong people come around or if you have legal problems. If you use convenience stores, there's 1 close by, plus a short drive to Grapeseed & Sandy Shores... I used to ride my bicycle from my PB house into Grape Seed through Chiliad, down by the river and on back into PB.. Sometimes I'd go into Sandy or by Zancudo... Always in a full lobby, wouldn't see a single person the entire time.. But that was before bunkers.. Like others, if you do businesses, don't do them there.... If you ever had to solo sell a full coke business when they give you the worst possible sell missions... I kept the building and shut the business down. It was a terrible experience. Umm, there's 2 large Pegasus vehicle spawns... I think that might cover everything.. just don't start any trouble and make sure you handle anyone who does.

Don't buy property in Paleto Bay; if you do then it's just going to get more and more people living there and going there and blowing up sh*t and then it begins to look like Burton all over again

 

Please, stay in Los Santos, I'm begging you.

Love Paleto so I would say yes even though its not as quite as it use to be with the additions of the bunker and facility. I have to say though right now my favorite spot and where I have one of my characters living is Grapeseed. Its really quite there, no one is ever over there. I love being able to walk out my front door and not get shot and I have a clothing store right across the street from my home, what more can a girl ask for? I also like that my biker clubhouse and business are all close by and if I need to get my hair done or buy bullet proof vests then I just hop on over to Sandy Shores. Plus to me Grapeseed doesnt feel as far away from everything like Paleto does.

LOL what fights? All I see anymore are people flying around on their magic rocket epeens blowing people up. If wanna fight all one needs to do is load into a death match. 

 

Anyways as a retired tryhardess remote areas work best for me now. No longer need the unlimited supply of unsuspecting victims that downtown brought me.

I found out that you could only have six garages or apartments with my garage on sale atm at a reduced price for less than a VIP mission. I hope this doesn't include an office garage which isn't on sale atm but is on my wish list, but if it does; I guess I've got a place or two I could trade if I ever wanted to trade.

Office, Clubhouse, Nightclub, Arena, Facility, and Penthouse garages are all in addition to the 6 regular properties you can own.

This is why the yacht was/is a solid purchase for me as a primary Paleto Bay property. Doesn't take up a property slot, has multiple vehicles at the ready, spawns weapons, has a defense system, can be moved and it's a luxury property. Also doesn't feature any annoying & boring gameplay with paywalls etc like with the businesses. I got the 2nd yacht on the website, comes with a Speeder, 4 seater Dinghy, I think 3 jet skis, 2 helipads 1 of which features a Swift helicopter. I've landed a Hydra on the 2nd helipad numerous times. But I also like playing without hud & radar, operating boats, and my character wears a scuba suit 90% of the time, so... it works for me... the house I owned prior is next to a parking lot & used to have a fountain... I will say, I do miss parking cars in the driveway... But they took my damn fountain.. I think there's only two 6 car properties and both are on the same street.

I used to have a house there, but sold it because being a collector, I needed more space and no house up there has a 10 car garage. But it's a nice little town to get away from everybody in.

FYI you can trade a 10-car garage for a 2 or 6-car garage and the cars that won't fit into the garage visually will be put "in storage", i.e. still available through the Mechanic.

 

All my garages are themed so I use this method to "hide" vehicles that don't fit anywhere else.

 

For example I have a "mini" garage with an Issi Classic and an Apocalypse Issi (both with the 69 livery), plus 8 other random vehicles in storage.

Buy a house or garage? Sure. But DON'T buy a business up there unless its the Facility. The Bunker is NOT worth it considering any sale in Los Santos has you trek from the tippy top of the map to the very bottom, thus harming your chances of getting the more intricate sale missions done.

I love Paleto Blvd.

My 2 car garage apartment and my garage are on this one street not too far from the auto shop.

I also have my MC businesses growing pot in Mt. Chiliad near/next to/touching Paleto Bay and my bunker in Paleto Bay (My bunker was the first thing I unwittingly got in Paleto Bay thanks to a Criminal Starter Pack).

After purchasing a business and properties in Paleto Bay, I found that Paul Bunyan looking Logger Statue

Image result for paleto bay statue

and knew Paleto Bay was better for what I was looking for than Grapeseed (where I moved from/traded in for my apartment in Paleto Bay)..

Reminds me of this;

Also I completed / found stunt jumps enjoying the Paleto Bay area on my Sanchez dirt bike.

Well thats nice, play as you wish. I do not really trust people I do not know either.  I was just responding to your comment that Paleto Bay is for p*ssies who do not want to fight. Im just saying the fighting in this game is less than to be desired. Just yesterday I was hanging out with my friend  in city and some guy came rolling up in his car ran me over and stared to shoot. I went passive , regrouped then came out of passive, found him, killed him, on foot with an actual gun  and messaged him, lets fight. I then kill him one more time and he leaves. That happens alot to me, they leave session or go into hiding. People want easy kills in freemode, they do not actually want to fight.

 

So I think living in Paleto is wonderful because you are away from all the p*ssies who want cheap easy kills and when you actually want to really fight people who also really want to fight you can join a game mode from the comfort of your home. I dont know, just my view of the game at the moment.

Way I see it is; if I had a weed farm in West Vinewood, I'd get less money for supplying the streets of Los Santos than I do with my weed farm in Mt. Chiliad off  Paleto Bay.

Also, I sometimes like the long sale so I can kill two birds with one stone; Make my money (with that extra distance sale money) and cross the map back to my LS stuff at the same time.

I’m not really sure what this means but in the spirit of what I think it might mean I like leisurely driving around in my Nightshark while they waste their missiles on it.  I try to keep count, after 25 hits I head for a garage

I haven't stayed in my Paleto Bay house for a while now, having decamped to Zancudo to be near my copters. I assume someone is cleaning the yard while I'm away. Back when I first moved there I used to love popping out the door, stealing a Sandking XL and stashing it in my garage. A great way to make money along with the occasional Rat-Truck as well. I might have to hvae a stroll round the old neighbourhood, maybe get a family bucket of Clucking Bell and a few dozen bottles of Logger.

Not on my watch.

If I see you wreaking havok around my town you are getting tranquilized on sight, put into a tiny box, stored inside my facility with nothing but water and bread until the next thursday, and then dropped into the alamo see from the back of my avenger with all the other crazy folks that the IAA picked up during the week.

Out of all my house, Paleto Bay is the only one I've never traded. It's a great place to do certain FR events but it's not as quiet as it used to be. 

 

Grapeseed has definitely become the go to spot if you want to be left alone.

The Nightshark can survive all those missiles?? Thanks for the info, partner!
