3. A realtor is interested in the determinants of home selling prices in his territory. He takes a random sample of 36 homes that have sold in this area during the past 18 months, observing: selling PRICE (Y), AREA (X1), BEDrooms (X2), BATHrooms (X3), POOL dummy (X4=1 if Yes, 0 if No), and AGE (X5). He fits the following models (predictor variables to be included in model are given for each model):
