There are lots of cheap (under 200K) homes that can be purchased in this game. The best way to rake in cash is to win Class A events, which consistently pay off in the $75 - $100K range. With a good Class A vehicle, you can make lots of money quickly.

Courier and vehicle delivery missions are a great way to make money too, and most of them don't take very long. Getting 100% on a vehicle delivery mission can earn you around $135 K. Most courier missions pay off around $40 K.

A couple of other good ways to make money:

1) There's a Class G Speed Challenge at Punchbowl Crater (near the bottom of the map) that pays $50K each time you win. The trick is to not follow the actual route: at the start of the challenge, move the car forward just enough to make the "Start" banner go away. Then turn around, and when you reach the stop sign, turn right and hit the gas down the long straight stretch. After you reach the 125 MPH threshold, press A to end the race. Then press Y and repeat the 30-second process as much as you like. Use a good G-Class vehicle like the Lamborghini Miura or Jaguar Type E Coupe with Level 3 upgrades.

or if you have some free time:

2) Halfway up the left side of the map along the coast is the Millionaire's Challenge, which pays out $1,000,000 each time you win. This race will take about 45 - 50 minutes to complete, and if you use a fully-upgraded MV Agusta F4 Tamburini motorcycle (available in the Ducati bike shop) it's not hard to finish within the 60-minute time limit.
