understand that we agents only earn if you buy or sell. (there is an obvious conflict of interest) That said, neighbors come and go; I would approach them first about the noise level. If that doesnt work speak with municipality in the event there is a noise ordinance.(this is a last resort) Fencing properties on busy roads is almost always a good idea. They may require permits so check this also. Shop around for this and any other improvements you may consider. The best money spent is typically the lesser items like painting cleaning decluttering. Do get a market analysis. If you were other wise happy with your previous agent have them do this. They know your home and the market and will appreciate your loyalty. Whether you stay or move, knowing what you have and what your area costs to live in is good information. When you bought you may have gotten your home because of the pricing due to the conditions you now are troubled by. Feel free to email me, I do not list nor sell in your area.

Feel free to cell me if you'd like me to take a look at your home. I grew up in Teaneck, am very familiar with the market & am in the area every day.
You really need someone to take a good look at all the variables, as Ryan mentioned. Should you decide to list your home for sale, be sure & hire an agent who'll describe the surroundings in a bit more of a positive light & accentuate the positives. (I'm kidding with you!!)
All the best,
