  • Title Research
  • Class C and Class A Appraisals

The Sales and Acquisition Unit is the principal real estate agent for City departments. Unfortunately this team is not funded to provide consulting, title or appraisal services for privately owned property. However, the public may access information about the City’s real estate portfolio and how to purchase or develop surplus property using the resources provide on this page.

City Owned Property List
The division maintains a list of all City owned property organized into two categories:
  • Declared Surplus Property: Properties declared "surplus" by the Mayor and Council and available for sale.

Sale or Development of City Property
The City periodically declares property it owns as "surplus" and conducts a general public auction to solicit buyers. In some cases the City may decide to make a "direct sale" of City property for the public benefit. The City may also solicit proposals to sell and develop City property to meet a specific City priority such as creation of affordable housing.

See the attached User's Guide to Sale or Development of City Property for further details.
