Residential Real Estate Q&A

What qualifies as residential real estate?
Residential real estate can be defined as any property that individuals or families inhabit. In addition to the traditional detached house, some property types include condos, apartments, townhomes, and multifamily units.
What is the residential real estate industry?
The residential real estate industry encompasses the buying, selling, renting, renovating, financing, management, development, and construction of residences. Brokerages, developers, banks, trusts, architects, and builders all work with landlords and individuals to design spaces for occupancy.
Who buys and sells residential real estate?
Traditionally, individual buyers use residential real estate agents to find and purchase residential properties.
