I know that Pittsburgh didn't get hit the way a lot of other areas did but it is still a buyers market. Why buy someone else's problem unless it's at a great discount? And even then - make sure that when YOU sell that you wait until all the trees have filled in, so YOUR buyers don't hear anything at all ...
I agree with most of the previous comments. If you love the house, you need to get it for a price low enough that you may not get hurt on resale. If will be difficult to sell to anyone who does enjoy the fresh air and is not prone to using central air in the summer. I also agree with Mr. Demmer's comments about a natural fence. Trees or shrubs will absorb the sound better then a traditional fence. Good luck with the purchase if you decide to move in that direction!

There are many location factors that buyers and sellers need to contend with: busy streets, airports, shopping centers, industrial areas, railroads, etc. These factions don't go away....
If you are considering the home location relative to its value, it would be fair to assume that future buyers would as well.
Since the three most important home factors are: location, location, and location, it would be reasonable to expect that this location may impact your home's resale value.
