Glossary of Terms

The world of real estate and property terms can sometimes be a confusing one.

This free online glossary of real estate terms includes selected terms commonly encountered by both tenants and home purchasers.

This is an extract from the more comprehensive Glossary of Property Terms jointly published by the REIA, Property Council of Australia (PCA) and Australian Property Institute (API) during January 2007. The REIA-API-PCA Glossary of Property Terms contains a complete lexicon of property related terms used by professional investors, analysts, planners, real estate agents and values.
