Focus of Article[edit]

i'm confused as to why the article specifically focuses on the regions in which is does, and overall the organization of the article. i think it needs some serious cleaning up, but if an editor could explain the reasoning behind the way the article is set up, maybe i'll comprehend it better. let me know. magnisplus GoGatorMeds (talk) 17:25, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

As a real estate agent in California, this article is very informational and helpful. The article could use some cleaning up but for someone that doesn't know real estate terminology, it is very helpful and useful. Thank you! — Preceding unsigned comment added by RubenL007 (talkcontribs) 01:56, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

I followed a link to this page specifically for the etymology, which is very interesting academically. --Squidonius (talk) 01:55, 27 January 2015 (UTC)

My link removed[edit]

I wanted to include information that I have found from petes101.com and site the website but my contributions are getting constantly removed, citing that the source is unreliable. What shall be done to prove the source of the website? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Eungsikgoon (talkcontribs) 06:29, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

New Category:Real estate holdout[edit]

There's a new Category:Real estate holdout for topics related to development affected by holdouts. --Dennis Bratland (talk) 17:55, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

Leased[edit]

Why does the page insist: "Residential real estate is a type of leased property"? Leasehold is one way of property ownership, but there is also freehold. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 131.111.85.79 (talk) 13:19, 15 June 2015 (UTC)

"house" versus "home"[edit]

Detached house is the more common term in American English, and far more common in British English (as evidenced by the phrases' frequency in Google n-gram viewer) though "home" has increased in recent decades in both languages. In the context of real estate sales, "home" may be a euphemism, designed to make an (as yet) unoccupied dwelling seem more homey, and therefore more desirable.CharlesHBennett (talk) 20:38, 5 November 2015 (UTC)

Real Estate property for Sale[edit]

Real estate is property consisting of land and the buildings on it, along with its natural resources such as crops, minerals, or water; immovable property of this nature; an interest vested in this (also) an item of real property buildings or housing in general.

Property comprised of land and the buildings on it as well as the natural resources of the land including uncultivated flora and fauna, farmed crops and livestock, water and minerals. Although media often refers to the "real estate market" from the perspective of residential living, real estate can be grouped into three broad categories based on its use: residential, commercial and industrial. Examples of residential real estate include undeveloped land, houses, condominiums and townhomes; examples of commercial real estate are office buildings, warehouses and retail store buildings; and examples of industrial real estate are factories, mines and farms. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sharonmartin01 (talkcontribs) 10:55, 10 December 2015 (UTC)

merge with real property?[edit]

Golopotw (talk) 09:17, 3 March 2017 (UTC)

Don't think merging is necessary. The cross-reference statements at the top of both clarify the distinctions: "This article is about the legal concept. For the business of selling and leasing real property, see real estate.: Laurars (talk) 13:15, 23 March 2017 (UTC)

I see no reason to rely on that statement, which doesn't accurately describe the content of the article. 24.7.14.87 (talk) 23:26, 24 November 2017 (UTC)
