Hey Rodney! Thank you for reaching out to us. To respond to your question, heterogeneity in real estate refers to how in a particular area, usually the area that we are referring to at the time, units are different from each other. The opposite of this would be rows of houses that all look almost identical. However, heterogeneity in real estate is not limited to the aspect of the property. The differences between units can be based on architectural style, yes, but also the year of construction, condition of the building, cost of purchase, and even placement on the lot. It refers to the property's uniqueness and this makes it more difficult to assess its market value.
