Noise & the Pandemic

Until more folks started working remotely, many people didn't pay much attention to the noise levels entering their homes.  It's difficult to stay focused on work when life sounds intrude into your home office space. 

Noise levels can actually impact resale value. The closer you live to the noise, the greater drop in resale value.  According to an article in Realtor Magazine, sellers in close proximity to an airport saw a 13 percent drop in prices, those living near train tracks saw an average discount in price of about 12 percent, and homes within a 2-mile radius of an airport saw their resale value about 13 percent lower than homes in the same zip code. 

For more information and to get some great noise reduction tips, you can read the complete article HERE.
