The noise level surrounding your property can be a decisive factor when selling. It might influence signing the deal or the entire price, according to a recent study.
69% of those interviewed said they would consider not buying a house even if it would be their ‘dream home’ because of the loud noise caused by neighbors. Moreover, 29% of respondents said the thought of refusing a house offer can be put to silence by a considerate discount.
Apparently young people are more accustomed to noises and disregard the problem. Maybe they would even appreciate being close to a club or a pub, but would probably fail to appreciate a handy neighbor trying a DIY project at 7 am.
And if you might think covering up this aspect can be easy, just try to schedule a viewing while the neighbors are silent.
