2.You are considering the most expensive purchase that you are likely to make: the purchase of a home. Identify at least five different variables that are likely to affect the actual value of a home. Among the variables that you have identified, which single variable is likely to have the greatest influence on the value of the home? Identify a variable that is likely to have little or no effect on the value of a home.
