Buying a house near a freewayI'm buying a property that is close to a freeway. It's about 250ft away from the high wall of the freeway, but on a cul de sac and 2 other houses separate mine from the high wall. I've been there a few times, and to me I didn't hear noise that bothered me. While inside the house I heard no freeway noise.However, I just read up on the internet how it could be an issue healthwise with the air quality. I didn't even think how this might be an issue. The previous owners lived there for 30+ years and raised a family there with no problems so my thinking was, it should be ok. My question is, healthwise, is this a bad move to buy it?Is it as bad as buying a house near or on an oil field? I was about to buy a new house in a community built on an oil field until I learned about the health effects of that. I'm thinking I might just install some hepa air filters in the house just in case, if I get it.August 25 2012 - US0YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
