Dear Irene,
The freeway proximity would be a "nuisance" and something that will effect the property values of that house permanently. Right now, there is a huge battle going on, because our 405 freeways need to be expanded to accomodate the traffic..and guess what happens to nearby home owners when the city has to do this?
With the number of homes available right now, there is no reason to take a risk like this. If you were my client, I would advise against it.
