CAVEAT VENDITOR: This is a latin term meaning "let the seller beware." It was developed as a counter to the buyer's warning, caveat emptor, and suggests that sellers too can be "taken to the cleaners" in a market transaction. While it's less important than caveat emptor to under appreciated consumers, it does surface from time to time.

VON THUNEN MODEL: A model of land use develop by Johann von Thunen that illustrates the trade off between land values and the distance from a central point of attraction. While originally applied to agricultural land use, the von Thunen model is commonly used to explain urban land use patterns. Two primary conclusions from the model are (1) that land values decrease as distance from the central point of attraction increases and (2) that different land use activities are contained in concentric rings equal distance from the central point of attraction based on the weight (or transportation cost) of the activity.

MARKET DEMAND

The combined demand of everyone willing and able to buy a good in a market. Market demand is one half of the market. The other is market supply. It is graphically represented by a negatively-sloped market demand curve, which can be derived by combining, or adding, the individual demands of every buyer in the market.
