Transportation Noise Pollution Data
The level of transportation noise in an area can have an enormous impact on a property. The impacts of an abundance of noise include anxiety, stress, concentration issues, cardiovascular issues, and hearing and memory loss. Noise levels are a top area of concern for home seekers.
Comprehensive Data at Your Fingertips
ATTOM’s noise data includes a summary of a desired location’s noise environment, along with scores for the following individual noise sources:
Roads and Highways
A score of 0 to 3 indicates the average daily road/highway exposure, considering average volumes and vehicle speeds.
Railroads and Railroad Crossings
A score of 0 to 3 describes peak noise exposure—the moment when trains pass. The score takes into account rail types, including heavy rail, metro, and light rail. Railroad crossing data describes peak noise exposure from railroad horns at the point of road crossings and distance to railroad crossings.
A score of 0 to 3 indicates the average aviation noise exposure around standard flight paths into and out of airports for the lower-48 U.S. states.
Hospitals and Fire Vehicles/Stations
A score of 0 to 3 describes peak noise exposure from emergency vehicles from fire stations and emergency room hospitals. Noise data includes the emergency vehicle source name and the distance from the location.
ATTOM Transportation Noise Data—Better Valuations, Faster Sales
Like other data products, such as school attendance areas, crime, and walk scores, noise data brings buyers and sellers into alignment. If a home is in a congested area with particularly loud transportation noise, that will be reflected in the price. Conversely, if a property is in an unusually quiet zone within an urban area, that might push up the price.
Accurate valuations rely on a number of different factors and datasets.
