12. Outright fabrication on your part. Those buildings are sometimes sold at a premium to market.

Stop jerking your knee so hard, you'll wear it out.

The government has sold surplus items including real estate since its inception.

Some of those older Post Office buildings needed massive updating to almost every system to be viable.

Many of those facilities were no longer upgradeable, or to do so would be prohibitively expensive.

Some had limited parking and handicapped accessability, outmoded docks for mail trucks, too small a work area to handle an increased mail volume.

It was cheaper to design and build a new facility from scratch that would serve the citizens better.


If you actually think that you will be able to purchase one for a song, go for it.
