Real Estate = Land + Fixtures

Real Property = Ownership rights to R/E

Personal Property = all other ownership rights

Estate = an interest in real estate

Kinds of Estates:

  • Freehold: Indefinite duration, at least a life time.


  • Estates of Inheritance

    • Fee Simple: Highest form of ownership

    • Defeasible Fees: Estate will terminate on the occurrence of a certain condition.

      • Example: A conveys property to X church so long as it is used as a church.

    • Estate for the life of another. Example: to X so long as my daughter lives.

  • Estates Not of Inheritance (Life Estates)

    • Conventional Life Estate

      • Reversion to the grantor’s heirs on the death of the life tenant.

      • Remainder (Remainderman) – the person(s) who gets the estate on death of the life tenant.


  • Marital Life Estates: husband and wife often have an interest (1/3 life estate in NC) in any property owned by the other. It is often necessary to when a married grantor conveys property owned in severalty to have the spouse sign the deed, so that the spouse waives any claim to a marital life estate.

    Real Estate Math

    Calculating Brokerage Commission:

    $ Commission = Commission Rate * Price

    Calculating Net Price to Seller:

    Net Price = Sales Price (1 – c)

    where: c = commission rate


    Calculating Area:

    Area of a rectangle = length * width

    Area of a triangle = ½ * base * height

    Volume of a Cube = length * width * heigth

    Units of Measure:

    1 mile = 5,280 feet

    1 acre = 43,560 sq. feet


    Sample Problems

    • Calculate the agents commission when the sales price is $250,000 and the rate is 6%.

    • Calculate the Sales Price if the seller wants $150,000 net after commission and the rate is 6%.

    • Calculate the number of acres in a tract of land that is 1,000 feet deep and 250 feet wide.

    • Calculate the square yards of carpet needed for a room measuring 12 by 18 feet.
