State Real Estate For Sale
There are 18 state owned properties ‘surplus to requirements’ up for sale in the Var through the sub-division of Departmental Public Finance, France Domaine, which hopes to sell them by the end of this year. The buildings and tracts of land (some of which cannot be built on) are officially estimated to have a total market value of 8.5 million euros.
Local town and village councils, and the departmental council of the Var itself, have priority for bid offers. Projects for renovation or transformation to provide council housing or apartments may be given special consideration for a sale below the market price.
Eight of the 18 properties are former military establishments.
Private individuals or organisations can, however, put in bids if no local council or departmental buyer is found. Private bids and projects incorporating imaginative transformations which would improve local amenities are likely to be well received, and may provide arguments for negotiating the price.
