Real estate, it seems describes any property consisting of buildings and land, but the term has exotic roots. Real is derived from the Latin for “existing and true,” while estate originated with the Latin word “statis” and French word “estate.”
First used in London around 1666, ironically the year the London fire destroyed most of the city, the term real estate went international and it’s especially popular in Belize where folks are grabbing up property in record numbers thanks to the nation’s fabulous weather, generous government perks, English-speaking populace, and you couldn’t name a more trusted investment avenue, especially in light of the bitcoin crash that has rocked investor worlds of late.
