SHOULD I REALLY CONSIDER NEIGHBORHOOD NOISE BEFORE BUYING MY HOUSE?

This is something that most home buyers don’t really think about before buying their home. It is a relative subject and may be subject to the character and personal preference of home buyers, but it is of great importance. Everyone needs some quite time once awhile if not always to think through issues and relax especially at home.

Is the house located at a place where there is mechanical noise from workshops around, is it closer to a night club, a social event center or Lorry Station? This could all be sources of noise that you may not have direct control over.

The noise you hear during the day when people are at work may be different from the noise at night. Be sure to drive by the house during the day and night to be sure.

Is the house in an area where there is always power down and residence have to run their petrol generators?
