The subject of this study is lake-oriented residential subdivisions located within the state of North Carolina. Specifically, focus is on the consumer of this type of development--the home buyer. This study looks at decisional variables of the home buyer to determine inputs for a consumer submodel linked to residential growth model. The home buyer's decisions are constrained largely by supply of dwelling sites provided. The consumer influences future development of residential sites by making choices among existing alternatives. One popular alternative in North Carolina recently is the lake-oriented residential subdivision. The study is primarily concerned with improvements in living environment of the housing consumer through the process of moving to new locations. (Author)
