The leasing and selling of land to home buyers and business owners has roots that date back to the 1700s. For instance, in 1794, the City Hotel was developed in New York City and was the first hotel built in the United States. Real estate is about land and how that land is used. Plenty goes into planning and developing a built environment, whether it’s used for housing, farming, offices, or entertainment.
