About Real Estate

The Real Estate Division of the Department of Finance accepts inquiries from the general public for purchase of properties. The City makes certain that the requested property is not needed for public improvement. The prospective purchaser completes a Request to Purchase Form  to become a qualified buyer. A qualified buyer is one who has paid taxes, water, sewage, etc. and is in compliance with City codes and policies. The approved prospective purchaser is notified of the price in the response letter to the Request to Purchase form.
