      “Environmental noise caused by traffic can reduce property values,” according to an online article from Road Engineering Journal, citing research from the 1970s and 1980s.

      Other blanket statements such as “… the vroom, vroom, vroom of traffic right outside a bedroom window …” will negatively impact the value of a home, are far from accurate. In fact, these stereotypes can keep you from maximizing your near-a-busy-street listing’s potential.

      There are pros and cons for homebuyers who purchase a home near a highway. The experts who’ve extensively studied the highway issue claim that results are a mixed bag.

      Noise level

      We found an interesting study on freeway noise, published by the Transportation Research Record Journal of the Transportation Research Board.

      In it, the researchers found that “Freeway construction may have an adverse impact on some properties, but in the aggregate, property values tend to increase with freeway development.”

      They also claim that the effect of freeways on property values varies according to the type of property.

      The value of single-family homes experienced a negative impact while multi-family dwellings, such as condos, apartments, and commercial properties found a rise in value.

      Finally, the study found that “… the most important factor in determining negative impact on property values appears to be the level of traffic on any major roads in the proximate area …”

      The level of traffic implies the level of noise, which produced a more significant impact on values “… than the presence of a freeway per se.”

      Consider a home in an inner-ring suburb near a highway compared to a home further out near a highway. The latter will experience less traffic and, thus, less noise and less of an impact on value.

      Two additional considerations

      Commuters may be willing to pay more to be able to hop on the freeway in the morning. Those who cherish a quiet night’s sleep, on the other hand, probably shouldn’t be looking at homes near a highway.

      Then there’s this random tidbit: Those homes located near a depressed freeway are valued higher than those located near at-grade or elevated freeways.

      Again, do the research required because what’s happening outside that bedroom window in your client’s chosen neighborhood may just have a positive impact.

          If you send holiday greetings to clients every year and haven’t even had time to think about them this year, time’s a-wastin’!

          Although it’s still not too late to design and print your own greeting, you may opt for our nice array of holiday postcards.

          Even if you don’t typically send greetings, if you hold an annual charity program or something similar, let folks know about it, while simultaneously reinforcing your brand into their awareness.

          Thinking of sending email greeting?

          Please. Don’t. Do. That.

          Sure, it’s cheap and easy. But, email greetings during the holidays most likely won’t even be opened. They might also:

          • Give a feeling of not alot of thought in your greeting
          • Get lost in all of your other year-end emails

          If an email holiday greeting is the best you can do, consider not sending greetings at all.

          Use the good old U.S. Postal service or, deliver your card in person. Either of these methods is far more personal than a dashed-off email with a greeting cut and pasted from the internet.

          Words, words, words

          What will you say?

          “Never mention ‘Christmas,’ ‘Hanukkah,’ or any other particular holiday,” says one online writer.

          She states it’s important to be inclusive of everyone and warns not to alienate anyone.

          Overall, it’s probably not a bad idea. But if you have folks in your sphere that you know, without a doubt, celebrate one of the religious holidays, a card specific to them would not only be appreciated, but they’ll know that you remembered them.

          Dig deep for enough cash to buy a few different cards or postcards for these leads, former clients, or those in your sphere. Be daring and actually wish them a Merry Christmas (December 25) or Happy Hanukkah (which begins the evening of November 28, 2021, and ends on December 6, 2021).

          Here’s an even better idea

          Some people find Hanukkah cards offputting. Judith Martin, aka Miss Manners, calls them “insensitive,”.

          So, consider skipping the winter holiday greetings and sending New Year cards instead. Not only will you avoid offending anyone in your sphere but your cards will arrive when the mailbox isn’t crammed full of other cards.

          When to send

          If you’ll be ordering your postcards online, it’s a good idea to get that head start that the department stores are so fond of. Order them a.s.a.p. On ProspeectsPLUS! you can schedule an order to go out anytime you like.

          We also offer an array of holiday cards and New Year cards to choose from. Check them out, here.
