The State Worker

Chronicling civil-service life for California state workers

June 26, 2009
State properties for sale (some day)

Note: We started our vacation today, although through the miracle of technology we have a couple of posts scheduled for Sunday and Monday. We'll be back July 6. While we're gone, Cap Bureau colleague Andrew McIntosh will keep the TSW blog fed. (He already has a post up today.)

See you next month!

The Los Angeles Daily News has a list of state properties that Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger wants to sell. The data table includes the price and timeframe to sell. Is your building is on the list? Click here to see.

Of course, the "For Sale" signs aren't out yet, and as the table notes, getting deals done would take many months, even years. And those guesstimates are probably optimistic, given the condition of the commercial real estate market and the financial system.

Thanks to TSW blog user DT for hooking us up with this link.
