Search for homes by Noise Level?

“Is this neighborhood quiet?” is a very common question buyers ask, almost as common as “how often does the train run?

This National Transportation Noise Map  is one way to try to ascertain neighborhood transportation noise levels. (thanks to David Reese for finding this!)

CityLab had a story in 2015 about a tool called HowLoud; I’m not yet sure how accurate that tool is for the Charlottesville area, but I did find a nifty map at RentLingo that seems reasonably good (after spending 30 seconds there)

The Charlottesville Albemarle Airport paints a wide swath.
