Introduction
Gulf Real Estate Properties, Inc., a company that specialized in condominium sales in southwest Florida, provided a sample date set on two types of condominium: 40 of Gulf View; those located directly on the Gulf of Mexico, and 18 of No Gulf View; those located near but not on the Gulf. In order to provide in depth statistically analysis, this paper will summarize descriptive statistics from the company 's sample data, and discuss its results. The paper also calculates confidence interval estimates of the population mean sales prices and days to sell, estimate margin of errors, and determine the sample size based on given values. Data Analysis
Descriptive Statistics for 40 condominiums Gulf View: | List Price ($1000s) | Sale Price ($1000s) | Days to Sell | Mean | 474.0075 | 454.2225 | 106 | Median | 437 | 417.5 | 96 | Mode | 975 | 305 | 85 | Standard Deviation | 197.2900291 | 192.5177534 | 52.21602073 | Min | 169.9 | 165 | 28 | Max | 975 | 975 | 282 | Range | 805.1 | 810 | 254 | Skewness | 1.095814639 | 1.159387914 | 1.077642123 |

Descriptive Statistics for 18 condominiums No Gulf View:

| List Price ($1000s) | Sale Price ($1000s) | Days to Sell | Mean | 212.8055556 | 203.1888889 | 135 | Median | 212.5 | 203.5 | 126 | Mode | 279 | 179 | #N/A | Standard Deviation | 48.94528124 | 43.89172358 | 76.2997186 | Min | 148 | 135.5 | 48 | Max | 322 | 292.5 | 338 | Range | 174 | 157 | 290 | Skewness | 0.543955061 | 0.30418061 | 1.360546957 | | | | |

From the above descriptive statistics, we could see the average list price per condo at the Gulf View is 474.0075 (thousands), a double price to compare with the average list price of selling a condo at No Gulf View at 212.5. Although average sale price is slightly less than average list price for 20 per condo, we see a similarity of average sale price of condo at the Gulf is twice the price to

    During year 7 consumers preferred detached homes to apartments so it provided a shift to the left in the demand curve and created a surplus in apartments and GoodLife had to lower their rental rates to keep up with the competition. The shift in demand moved the supply down to reach another equilibrium at 2,250 apartments rented at $1300 per month. Midway through year 7 GoodLife converted several hundred apartments into condos for sale to keep up with the market demands and consumer change in preference. This caused a shift in both the supply and demand curves because consumers preferred detached homes and the company expected condos to be the best substitute for those detached homes. In July of year 7 1,900 apartments were…

    The houses that I am analyzing are both located in Spring Hill Florida; one in zip-code 34609 and the other in zip-code 34610. The two homes are approximately 12 miles away from each other. My parents relocated to a neighboring area in Hernando County. Every time I visit them I visit them it seems the Spring Hill area calls my name. It is because I have fallen in love with this area over the past few years that I have decided to look into this are for me to relocate to. I have come to know the location, surroundings, and basically the kind of town it is. In addition to the normal size, number of beds and baths, I am looking at potential addition to a home, such as pool (if not included), and increased garage space. It is because of these criteria that I have chosen the two properties I have listed.…

    According to the article by Gillingham, after the end of last quarter, asking prices for multifamily properties have grown $152,745 per unit, and asking prices have increased 17.3% since last year. High buyer confidence, along with an unstable stock market and a very low vacancy rate has convinced many buyers to purchase or invest in real estate. The high demand has decreased the supply of purchasable multifamily estates. Instead of investing in the unstable stock market, many buyers choose to invest in real estate because they view it as more stable.…

    Two Sample Hypothesis

    • 1370 Words

    Nonparametric testing does not depend on certain data in a particular distribution. Also, nonparametric testing applies techniques that do not assume that the basis of a model is predetermined. In a previous paper we discussed a hypothesis with single and double samples. Now we will conduct the equivalent, nonparametric test of the real estate hypothesis using another five-step process. The testing we will use in this paper will be the Wilcoxon Signed-Rank Test. The Wilcoxon Signed-Rank Test compares a single sample median with a benchmark using only ranks of data instead of the original observations. It is used to compare paired observations. An advantage of the Wilcoxon Signed-Rank Test is the freedom from the normality assumption. Other advantages are robustness to outliers and applicability to ordinal data (David P. Doane, 2007). In the Wilcoxon Signed-Rank Test the population should have a lot of similarity. The data should have some correlation like houses and price for example. Our hypothesis is as stated: If a real estate home has 3 bedrooms or more, then the price is at least 200,000 dollars or more. The possible outcomes for the tests are left-tailed, two-tailed and right-tailed. The intention of this assessment is to increase knowledge of respective research.…
