Not the best image[edit]

The photo of the property in Connecticut, meant to illustrate a detached house, is not the best choice since it cannot be clearly seen that the house is in fact detached: who knows what's behind the bushes on the left. (It relies on Americans knowing that detached houses often look like this.) (talk) 13:57, 29 November 2019 (UTC)

merge with real property?[edit]

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. (talk) 23:26, 24 November 2017 (UTC)
I agree that the cross-reference statement doesn't describe the "real estate" article correctly--the page isn't just about the real estate industry. I also think it's confusing to have one page for a subject ("real estate") and then a separate page for the legal / theoretical treatment of that same subject ("real property"). Couldn't we just combine the two and create the pertinent sections? For example: "History of the term," "Legal status," "Business of buying/selling real estate", etc. Good mortician (talk) 18:09, 5 August 2018 (UTC)

Proposed merge from Real estate transaction[edit]

I propose merging Real estate transaction into this article. The first section would not be out of place here. The second section, the enormous bullet list, is more of an unsourced howto/pedagocical essay that could be omitted entirely. If nobody objects I'll come back and do the merge in a month's time ie.
