Property prices in urban areas affected by road traffic noise

By J.C. Blanco and I.H. Flindell


This paper reports a revealed preference study into the different effects of road traffic noise on property<br/>values in residential areas with similarly high road traffic sound levels but with what appear to be important<br/>differences in the market for different types of residential property in each area. The results show<br/>significant differences in the revealed effects of noise on property prices between the three areas with<br/>in one case an increasing (and possibly misleading) relationship between higher monetary values and<br/>higher sound levels. A number of possible explanations for the findings are discussed in the paper
