How to Sell a Home on a Busy Road

DEC 2, 2015

Before Eric Tyson and his wife had kids, they spent five carefree years living in a townhouse on a busy thoroughfare in a noisy, vibrant part of San Francisco. But after their twin sons were born, they traded this starter home for one in a tranquil Connecticut suburb.

Although the couple look back fondly on their San Francisco years, they also remember the difficulty they had selling their first house because of its intensely urban location.

"Some people aren't noise-sensitive and don't care if they live in a main road. But most people want to avoid the traffic, pollution and lack of privacy that comes with such a location. They also fear more crime," says Tyson, co-author of "House Selling for Dummies."
