We have a dangling modifier, so we need a noun which supports the dangling modifier. Options B and D are the ones which satisfy such condition.
Option D goes wrong in SVA, with realtors considers.
So, the answer is option B.

IMO B

They and he or she in A, C, and E have no noun to refer back to. Hence OUT

In D realtors often considers have SV agreement error. Hence, Out.

The only valid choice that remains is B

(A) When making decisions regarding the pricing of residential real estate, they often consider such aspects of the market as average selling price of comparable homes, number of listings in the area, interest rates, and new housing starts.

No antecedent of pronoun "They".

(B) When making decisions regarding the pricing of residential real estate, realtors often consider such aspects of the market as average selling price of comparable homes, number of listings in the area, interest rates, and new housing starts.

(C) When making decisions regarding the pricing of residential real estate, he or she often consider such aspects of the market as average selling price of comparable homes, number of listings in the area, interest rates, and new housing starts.

He or She has no antecedent.

Also we have SV agreement issue. "Or" generates singular subject, so "consider (plural)" is a wrong verb here.


(D) When making decisions regarding the pricing of residential real estate, realtors often considers such aspects of the market as average selling price of comparable homes, number of listings in the area, interest rates, and new housing starts.

SV agreement issue. We need "Retailers consider".

(E) Considering such aspects of the market as average selling price of comparable homes, number of listings in the area, interest rates, and new housing starts, they often make decisions regarding the pricing of residential real estate.

No antecedent of "they"
