@msh210 'Real-estate'?? I think in the question 'house' is extremely lav davka. –  Double AA Mar 6 '12 at 3:43
    
@DoubleAA, the asker saw your comment and can let us know what he meant (ideally by editing/retagging the question for clarity). –  msh210 Mar 6 '12 at 3:50
    
This year in Israel it's a big deal, since Shabbat is not Chag, but chag ends Friday Night. –  avi Mar 6 '12 at 6:44
    
@msh210 I removed the erroneous real-estate tag –  Naftali Mar 6 '12 at 13:49

You can own them (Rama in Shulchan Aruch OC 453:1). The Mishna Berura there adds that you can even derive benefit from them.
