By incorporating such features as neighborhood quality, environmental factors, and the type of improvements made to a property, the price of a property may be forecast using a hedonic model. This study utilized property sales information of single family homes sold within a portion of the Bryan, Texas, city limits. A comprehensive database of selected residential properties was developed and incorporated into a Geographic Information System (GIS). A hedonic model was used to assess market values for the selected single-family properties in Bryan based on housing and neighborhood characteristics such as racial neighborhood make-up, environmental factors, and the type of improvements made to a property. In addition, various spatial measures and spatial autocorrelation measures were evaluated to determine if there was any spatial dependence between racial makeup and the sales price of a residence. Hedonic modeling, GIS, and the various spatial measures were employed to determine if residential segregation exists within Bryan, Texas
