Is the price discrepancy of a home reflected solely on the distance from the city or do other factors (such as buyers, the economy, amenities) contribute to the price of a home? An ANOVA test allows researchers to compare more than two means simultaneously, and trace sources of variation to potential explanatory factors (Doane & Seward, ch. 11, p 439). The team will be reviewing the information presented in the data set and with supporting research will be able to determine if price discrepancies exist. Importance of Research

There are two categories of people whom it would be crucial to have a constant update on home prices.
