Sampling and Statistical Inference

Sampling and Statistical Inference
Project description
Gulf Real Estate Properties, Inc. is a real estate firm located in southwest Florida. The company, which advertises itself as an expert in the real estate market, monitors condominium sales by collecting data on location, list price, sale price, and the number of days it takes to sell each unit. Each condominium is classified as Gulf View if it is located directly on the Gulf of Mexico, or No Gulf View if it is located on the bay or a golf course (near but not on the Gulf). Sample data from the Multiple Listing Service in Naples, Florida, provided sales data for 40 Gulf View condominiums and 18 No Gulf View condominiums. The complete data set is in the file named Real Estate.
Managerial Report
Prepare a report (see below) that summarizes your assessment of the nature of the housing market in southwest Florida. Be sure to include the following seven (7) items in your report.
1.Descriptive statistics (mean, median, range, and standard deviation) to summarize each of the three variables for the 40 Gulf View condominiums. Are there any outliers in the data set for any of the three variables? If there are any outliers in any category, please list them and state for which category they are an outlier. Describe which method you used to make your determination.
2.Descriptive statistics (mean, median, range, and standard deviation) to summarize each of the three variables for the 18 No Gulf View condominiums. Are there any outliers in the data set for any of the three variables? If there are any outliers in any category, please list them and state for which category they are an outlier. Describe which method you used to make your determination.
3.Compare your summary results from #1 and #2. Discuss any specific statistical results that would help a real estate agent understand the condominium market.
4.Develop a 95% confidence interval estimate of the population mean sales price and population mean number of days to sell for Gulf View condominiums. Interpret your results.
5.Develop a 95% confidence interval estimate of the population mean sales price and population mean number of days to sell for No Gulf View condominiums. Interpret your results.
6.Assume the branch manager requested estimates of the mean selling price of Gulf View condominiums with a margin of error of $40,000 and the mean selling price of No Gulf View condominiums with a margin of error of $15,000. Using 95% confidence, how large should the sample sizes be for each?
7.Gulf Real Estate Properties just signed contracts for two new listings: a Gulf View condominium with a list price of $589,000 and a No Gulf View condominium with a list price of $285,000. What is your estimate of the final selling price (based on the percent difference for the sale and list price) and number of days required to sell each of these units?
Your report must contain the following:
1.A title page in APA style.
2.An introduction that summarizes the problem.
3.The body of the paper should answer the questions posed in the problem by communicating the results of your analysis. Include results of calculations, as well as charts and graphs, where appropriate.
4.A conclusion paragraph that addresses your findings and what you have determined from the data and your analysis.
5.Submit your Excel file in addition to your report.
