If you are living in an area of heavy traffic and are thinking to rent or sell it, it is better to make it sound proof before renting or selling it. You can easily do this, by spending some cash and make it sound proof. This can be done by adding different sound barriers like thick, double-lined curtains and door insulation. This will block the noise coming from outside and give you peace of mind and also it will be easier for you to rent or sell it.
When potential buyers and tenants visit your property, ask them to come when there are non-rush hours, like on Fridays or mid morning, as there will be less noise. This doesn’t mean that you are going to tell lies in front of your potential tenants or buyers, but also you do not want to lessen the price of your property by inviting them in rush peak hours.
