Buying a house with shares? : RealEstate

So I was looking at some houses in belgium and there was this almost perfect home. It is currently used as student housing but that’s not an issue as I could use the main house for myself and the attachment for the student housing as income.

My question however is, they say in the listing “This sale will be made by a transfer of shares”. I have no idea what that means.

Does that mean I’ll be buying part of a company and that I technically not truly own the property?

It’s an alone standing property with land and such so it’s not a condo or anything.

Edit: or is it maybe that it’s a small company I’d be buying and the company is the rentals? But why would such a small rental be a whole company and on top of that be in shares? Could such a small company even be in shares/public?
