The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) sells failed banks and loans at auction and real estate lost through foreclosure. The US Office of Property Disposal sells real property, from land to buildings, throughout the USA, at auction. Government Printing Offices sell the government's used printing and binding equipment. The Office of Housing and Development sells housing that has been lost through mortgage foreclosure. The Bureau of Land Management will occasionally sell federal lands, but since 1976, many of these lands have been protected.
