Sales and Acquisitions

The Sales and Acquisition Unit provides real estate transactional support to elected officials and Council-controlled City departments for the acquisition and sale of property under GSD's jurisdiction that is required for City purposes. These include:

  • Title research
  • Class C and Class A appraisals
  • Auctions of City owned property
  • Purchase and sale transactions

To request a Title Report, Class C or Class A Appraisal or to initiate the sale/acquisition of property for City purposes, please send an interdepartmental memo from an authorized representative in your organization to GSD's Director of Real Estate Services at Mail Stop 706.

GSD does not handle real estate functions for the Department of Water & Power, Los Angeles World Airports, or the Harbor Department. Please contact representatives in those departments for inquiries regarding their property.

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.
