Real Estate Glossary - What does it all mean? (the letters X-Y-Z) THE END!

Real Estate Agent with North Texas Top Team, REALTORS (Plano, Murphy, Wylie) TX Lic# 055794

If you are a consumer (a home buyer or a home seller, or just a real estate watcher) you may not be familiar with all of the terms involved in real estate transactions.   Realtors® know the terminology, but wouldn't it be great to have that information as a consumer?  A "Real Estate Terminology Dictionary" of sorts.

Look no further, here is the next installment of the Real Estate Glossary! 

TIP: to see the complete Real Estate Glossary - subscribe to this blog.


YEAR-TO-YEAR TENANCY - A periodic tenancy in which the rent is reserved from year to year.

YIELD - The return on an investment or the amount of profit, stated as a percentage of the amount invested.

ZONING - The regulation of structures and uses of property within designated districts or zones. Zoning regulates and affects such things as use of the land, types of structure permitted, building heights, setbacks, and density (the ratio of land area to improvement area).

Hi Melissa,

Thank you for the rest of the glossary. Just for your information, I think that a person who cannot write is allowed to place an X to execute a contract. But maybe check with a lawyer first!! LOL

Steve - I think that's also for cartoon characters and movie characters!  :0)  I always wondered if that really was the way they did it before everyone was educated.  LOL
