Maze Bank West CEO Office($1,000,000)- This is the most important property needed to run businesses in GTA 5. Most businesses won’t let the player run them without the player owning a CEO Office first.
Great Chapparal Clubhouse($200,000)- One of the most helpful properties in GTA 5, the Clubhouse is needed to run the popular Motorcycle Club businesses. the MC businesses are also a great way to earn passive income. The Great Chapparal location offered in the starter pack is a very great location too.

However, the Paleto Forest Bunker is not recommended due to its distance from the city and it is advised to purchase a better bunker when possible. The Lago Zancudo bunker is a very good bunker to purchase for a moderate price tag.
Counterfeit Cash Factory($845,000)- The Counterfeit Cash factory is a passive MC business that requires the Clubhouse to run as mentioned earlier. It is a good business, although the Coke Lab must be purchased whenever possible.
