If you are in the market for commercial real estate, you may want to check out the United States Marshals Service Asset Forfeiture Program. The Marshals Service runs the Department of Justice's Asset Forfeiture Program by managing and disposing of properties seized and forfeited by federal law enforcement agencies and U.S. attorneys nationwide. Among other things, at any given time you can find listings for commercial property up for auction (many of them run online) throughout the United States. For more information on these auctions, visit the United States Department of Justice's Web site and search on "asset forfeiture program." If you do decide to pursue purchasing one of these properties, you will need to get your own commercial real estate appraisal conducted.
