# Geographic regression

I'm working on a project to estimate real estate and started with some classique techniques, such as linear regression etc. The obtained results are already going in the good direction, but to get some more precise results, I've started to lookup some more advanced models.

First I've looked into a spatial autoregressive model, but these models are a bit hard to use if we want to predict new values, or am I wrong?

The next one is the kriging technique. In general, these models use only two coordinates and one prediction value (like temperature or height). In my project I'm using way more variables to predict the outcome.

My question is which technique/model I would best look into to obtain some better results.

I highly recommend the spdep package for R by Roger Bivand. It's relatively easy and quick to use, and it intersects well with the nomenclature used by LeSage and Pace in their excellent book.
