One factor which may play an important role in the sale process of your home is its location with respect to heavy traffic. If you are near a busy road, or have some other local factor which might negatively affect the property value, your marketing can play an important role in your likelihood of having a good sale.

One of the major factors which can deter potential buyers is the noise they hear while inside the home. A loud road nearby is a great example of something which can be very loud, and there is very little that you can do to move the road. This will also be the case if you are near another transportation hub, such as an airport or a train track.

There are a few things which you can do to help mitigate noise. Solid insulation and windows can be installed which help to keep things quiet indoors. Exterior foliage and interior drapery can also be useful in managing noise. These can and should absolutely be investigated for use. If you are able to show that the noise is hardly audible at all while inside, you can help to assure potential buyers that they will not be disturbed. However, it is unlikely that you will be able to remove all negative noises or concerns.

The key to selling a property near one of these areas is to focus on the positive aspects of the area. If you are close to a transportation hub, it can seriously cut down on travel time. Furthermore, this land could have extra value due to its proximity to important functions. Should local business want to expand, your land could be valuable to them, and this can help you to negotiate a higher price.

Additionally, your busy location could help to advertise the property. If you are putting up a sign, putting it in an area where many people will see it can only help. While not everyone will be interested in the downsides of your property, this large pool of potential buyers should be able to supply some of those for whom the positives outweigh the negatives. Target your advertising to those who are likely to prioritize the proximity to important locations, and who may not be worried about the potential downsides, such as the noise or the proximity of fast moving traffic to their children.
