Real estate is often the single most valuable kind of property that you may own. "Real property" or real estate refers to interests in land or buildings. ("Personal property" refers to things that are not real estate – such as money, investments, contract rights, vehicles and other tangible property that is not attached to or part of land or buildings.)

- Purchase or sale;
- Lending or borrowing;
- Mortgage or security interests in real estate as collateral;
- Lease or tenancy;
- Tax assessment or real estate tax assessment appeals;
- Use, and zoning;
- Construction, remodeling or demolition; or
- Disagreement, dispute or lawsuit.
