    real estate

    Hi,

    could you please tell me whether it is possible to use the word "real estate" in plural? If we are talking about several houses or lands, do we still say "the real estate is" or "the real estates are"?

    Thank you very much.

    Re: real estate

    Great But if I wanted to use "real estate" then which is better for several items - singular or plural?

    Re: real estate

    I'd use the singular.
