The real estate rental market consists of sales of real estate rental services by entities (organizations, sole traders and partnerships) that rent, lease and allow the use of buildings and/or land. The rent of goods or services is governed by a rental agreement or contract between an owner of a product and an end-user where a payment is made by the end-user for the temporary use of the product. The rental agreement is a document used for the occupying of space (either commercial or residential) for a period of time in exchange for monthly rent. The real estate rental market is segmented into residential buildings and dwellings rental services; non-residential buildings rental services; mini warehouses and self-storage units rental services; and other rental services.

Real estate agents are increasingly using new technologies such as online listing, video and virtual reality (VR), to provide better services to clients and strengthen the buyer-agent relationship.

Online real estate listing services such as Zillow and provide housing database and information on tax and purchase history. Technologies such as video, VR tours and e-signing services also streamline the real estate transactions.
