Introduction to Real Estate

Real estate is defined as a piece of land, including the air above it and the ground below it, as well as any buildings or structures on it. Another definition that we can give for real estate is land and anything growing on, attached to, or erected on it, excluding anything that may be severed without injury to the land. Real estate is now a booming industry. Land has existed over a long time, and ownership of the land varies over time. The idea of uninterrupted ownership of land is not possible in today’s civilized world and so the ownership of land varies over time. These various rights to ownership are divided into estates and chattel interests. Estates are rights in real estate which amount to real property. Taking real estate into consideration one can ask several questions. It is important to find the answers to these questions such as:

  1. What market is available for brokerage services?
  2. What factors determine broker and agent compensation?
  3. How does brokerage participation influence market price?
  4. Is the brokerage market efficient?
  5. How do brokerage markets vary internationally?

The property sector has gained greatly over the years of economic expansion. Real Estate prices are rocketing at a high pace as there is great demand for new commercial space, production facilities and housing. Every growth depends on the sound economic logic of supply and demand conditions. The fast rise in prices attracts a lot of speculators who do not have the power to stay on. The battle becomes hard to fight bringing down even the genuine investors. With rise in the earning capacity, the borrowers are ready to accept bigger mortgages as a result profiting commercial banks. Thus, housing finance has become highly profitable to banks. The price for similar types of real estate property can vary depending on several factors.

One of the main factors is the concept of a Buyer's Market versus a Seller's Market. Being a buyer gives you an upper hand in the market, so take ample time to study the market trends carefully. Watch out for areas where there is a potential for foreclosed homes. Keep yourself informed on the latest improvements in the town; maybe a new transit line or roadway, which makes the area have high potential. A person who is a buyer for the first time may not be familiar with the real estate buying process. They should approach the real estate professional who will act as the agent between the buyer and the seller. There are also exclusive buyer agents. The commercial property segment is bound to benefit from higher infrastructure spending and industrial investments over the next few years.
