Dutch term or phrase: (aan)koop en (ver)huur van onroerend goed
A company, among other services, offers: ‘de (aan)koop en (ver)huur van onroerend goed’.

Can a Dutch person tell me what on earth is really meant by this? That is, can you ‘unpack’ it for anglo consumption?

I know I could split this into two questions*, but it seems to make more sense to treat this as a single unit.

purchase, sale, leasing-out (as lessor), and leasing (as lessee) of real estate


Explanation:
(aan)koop en (ver)huur van onroerend goed
Alternatives:
purchasing, sale, letting (as lessor), and leasing (as lessee), of real property.
the purchase, sale, and leasing, of real property.
(Etc.)
Explanation:
(1) It is not "property" per se, it is real estate, aka real property.
(2) Definitions: There is real estate, aka so-called real property, which is immovable property, and there is personal property, which is movable or intangible property.
(3) I think the Dutch koop sometimes in context means verkoop, just as in German (Kauf and Verkauf).
Remark: The additional context was helpful, in revealing that a broad range of activities is contemplated.

More re definitions: The general definitions are not entirely intuitive, because real property (but not real estate) includes rights of use and enjoyment, easements, covenants, appurtenances, etc., which are intangible. Legal definitions deem personal property to encompass, seemingly very broadly, everything which may be a subject of ownership and which is not covered by the designation of real property.

neutral  Richard Purdom: 'Lease Out' is an oddity of colloquial English. The normal word is 'letting'
