    Sometimes, it's more a visual thing, but grammatically incorrect of course

    So grammatically speaking. What is the correct form to write real estate or Real Estate?

    If it's in a heading (where capitalizing the first letter of each word is appropriate), then "Real Estate" is appropriate.
    If it's in a name (a "proper noun"), then it's appropriate to capitalize it. Example: "Coldwell Banker Real Estate"

    Any other time (that I can think of), it will be INappropriate to capitalize it. "We are your best resource for Real Estate information!" is lame and wrong. Just like you aren't supposed to write, "We are your best resource for Salmon Jerky and Bacon-Wrapped Scallops!" Wrong, wrong, wrong.

    "But I LIKE to write it that way. I think it looks cool and makes people excited." Fine. You do that. But many of your readers will recognize it as an error.

    Actually capitalization is done based on different rules. If "real estate" were being used as a part of a title or service then it is actually appropriate to capitalize it.

    Indeed, and this has been covered above.

    This is a great question. Usually when I write a letter that includes the word real estate I keep it in lowercase but if I'm adding it to my website, flyer or other material I would usually capitalize it. "Beach Real Estate"

    It is a perfect case of "monkey see - monkey do". I have been doing it for almost 19 years because it seems to be an industry standard - thanks to your bringing it my attention I am now going to stop.
