Federal Government Real Estate - From office buildings to single-family homes, the U.S. Government may have the property you need.
Federal TransferGSA first offers excess property to other Federal agencies. If another Federal agency identifies a need, the property can be transferred to that agency.

The notification procedure is as follows: Based on the property's location, the appropriate regional office writes to the Governor of the State or territory, clerk of the county, Mayor of the city or town, and any regional and metropolitan comprehensive planning agencies that may be concerned with the property's ultimate use. Announcements may also be placed in Post Offices and other prominent places like the State Capitol building, county building, courthouse, town hall, or city hall.
A public agency or institution has 30 days from the date on the notice to advise our regional office of interest in the property. The response should cite the applicable legislation and indicate how much time is needed to prepare and submit a formal application. Various sponsoring agencies review the formal application for acceptability. If the application is approved the property may be conveyed for the approved public use.
