Surplus Real Estate
The City of Alexandria invites interested parties to browse for surplus real estate property that is currently available. The Department of General Services is responsible for public disposal of all City-owned real estate that has been designated as surplus by the Alexandria City Council.
All real estate is offered "As-Is," with no warranties or guarantees, expressed or implied, as to kind, character or its fitness for any use, purpose or its ability to be developed for any use or purpose. In some cases, the City may have conducted studies for use of the property for city purposes, which will be made available to potential purchasers, if the information is determined to be public and applicable. The City of Alexandria does not have the resources to tear down, identify and report the characteristics of each lot or building for prospective purchasers. However, prospective purchasers are offered the opportunity to personally inspect the properties offered for public sale (as surplus) at the location specified in the listing, upon request.
