The Office of Inspector General has yet another idea to help us out of our woes -- sell off our buildings!
The logic is that we currently own more than $27 billion in real estate, and selling off some of those buildings, especially in prime urban centers, could raise some quick cast.
Federal Times used the Postal Headquarters in Washington D.C. as an example. It is currently assessed at a value of $115 million, given it's prime location at the end of the National Mall.
If we currently occupy those buildings, they could be sold and then leased back to us, while we pocket the purchase price. Or so goes the logic.
