First, LEGO did at some point reissue some sets (the "legends" series), but then stopped doing so, and it's likely they found out it was not really that interesting to do. The reasons why would be pure speculation, but at the very least building techniques and available parts do evolve in a way that older sets wouldn't be able to compete with recent ones. ...

I can't believe that nobody else else has posted the most important real company that appears within the LEGO City theme... the LEGO company itself! There is a good list of promotional sets on Brickipedia, that includes the set theme. Many of the town / city sets include logos or brand names of real-world companies. Other sets that include real-world ...

From 2002-05, LEGO sold Spider-Man themed sets under license from Marvel Entertainment in conjunction with the release of the first two Spider-Man movies.

In October 2004, ...

While there is no explicit "house" tag, I would recommend browsing in Brickset's City theme: http://brickset.com/sets/theme-City You can refine the search based on year (include only recent, therefore easy to buy sets), tags (building, shop, ...) and subtheme (airport, construction, police, ...).

Lego also collaborated with several airline companies to release a standard plane but with stickers denoting the airline name. I remember excitedly purchasing them back in the day. They were only available through their in-flight shopping if I recall correctly. I have two. One is El-Al and the other one is for a Japanese carrier (need to check either ANA or ...

I wouldn't consider "hospital" as fictional. At first, LEGO did seem to use the Red Cross logo, but they have since then had to stop (presumably because of the Red Cross being very protective about their logo). Note that the logo they have been using since isn't fictional either. 12v era trains provided stickers for a lot of different train companies, I'm ...
