Introduction

Methods; I shall be collecting primary and secondary data to test these hypotheses. Primary data was collected as a class exercise on the 26th of June 2004 and included the following methods; * A streetscape was drawn to record the basic information of a house and also to provide a diagram of each site. This was a poor way of obtaining data because it was hard to draw the houses accurately in a limited time period whilst only using a pencil.

This is a subjective method with my opinion only. A better method may have been to ask members of the general public to give their opinions, and then grade them according to the answers. This information would provide me with a wide cross-section of results as to what people think of the different sites covered, rather than having just one opinion of each that could be bias. * Photos were taken of each of the four sites, to accompany the streetscape sketch. They will provide a clear picture of each location and have been taken with a digital camera so that labels can be added later on to describe features and characteristics of each place. ...read more.

Conclusion

The price of each house and details about its interior were cut out as well. I obtained 50 examples to get a good coverage of Beverley. The problem with this method is that if any of the house prices are lowered or are accepted under offer, this could affect my results by proving them to be unreliable.
