I am looking at a 75 year old bungalow in Virginia. My real estate agent tells me this row of 5 bungalows have been difficult to sell in the past both due to the busy two-lane street and a gas station on the corner (4 houses away.) There is a driveway and large flat lot behind house which has an alley. It needs a lot of work.
My question - can street sounds be minimized to make a front bedroom comfortable? and as a neighborhood becomes more popular - is it reasonable to assume the busy street will be less of a negative?
