You might get a deal getting in but you'll take a hit getting out, I'd pass if it were me.

The noise level in the neighborhood is comparable to most backed up to traffic, once inside the home with the normal business of your daily life happening around you - it becomes minimal as most in the neighborhood have enjoyed living there.
I agree that your tolerance level could vary one way or the other. I would be happy to show you this property in order to judge for yourself.
I have buyers that have purchased with me from Buckhead north along this GA. 400 stretch that are comfortable and happy. If you are not represented and want to take a look at this property and others that are convenient but not bordering 400, just give us call directed or email.
You could also go north by an exit and pick up another group of great homes in this price range in neighborhoods with amenities. Let me know if you would like assistance in your home search.
