Thank you for all the props so far - I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I loved analyzing it!

Yes, that would be very interesting and if there's enough demand for it maybe we'll do it despite the inherent difficulties.

I would definitely be interested in the results of the more detailed analysis. Should I pm you or you plan on posting some time?
Very good question but no I did not - R2 was 0.374. In spite of this, I shared it anyways because the model predicted nearly 40% of the prices using just two variables so I thought that was "good enough" for a non-scientific study.

RE: Detailed analysis - I definitely plan on posting more over time depending on the demand. Also, since the data set is so small I can only slice and dice it so many ways. Was there something you were interested in?
