Realtor.com has a new noise indicator option in its search function. This lets hopeful shoppers filter out loud areas with high traffic, city noise, or college student neighbors.
Each property will have a noise rating of high, medium, or low and then drill down to see why the property gets that rating. But honestly, who keeps searching after a property turns up with a high noise rating other than someone with a hearing impairment? Or people addicted to sleeping medications for whom this makes no difference, I suppose?
