That is really a question for your Realtor, He or She is in charge of Marketing your Home.
With that said
I have represented a home on a very busy street.
However it was a great location. great location.
We had taken bids from contractors to put up a large block fence and or a turn around drive way.
You probably don`t want to go that far
Good windows to cut down on noise from the traffic.
I have seen some stagers do a great job. Landscape and curb appeal are big factors
I think the most important thing is your convenient location, name them.
1. Busy streets can be downplayed by the attractiveness of location, price or some sort of "stand out feature".
2. If it is loud, at a fountain by the door coming in.
3. Leave a tv on during open house of golf, ice skating or skiing shows (play a dvd recording if you have to). Home stagers tell me that this type of background noise actually help bring a sort of connection with the home, something you may need.
4. Crazy suggestion that professional investors do... Buy the property to the right and left of you as properties in a row are worth more and create new buyers such as developers who can put 4-5 houses on three lots.
I hope this helps. My house renovation on a busy street in austin is found in the link below.
Price sells anything.
The problem may be what you think you need vs what others think it is worth. Not sure your house is listed or if you are doing it for sale by owner, but if you really need to sell, I'd suggest talking to a few experts and getting some price opinions.
On the other hand if you don't HAVE to sell right now, I'd advise waiting. This market is probably not going to get better anytime soon and you may be best off waiting it out.
Your house is in a really good area, very high traffic, nice location. I had a prospect in the same area that I'm waiting to list their property with me.
If you are interested in see my marketing materials we could probably to do some business together,
