My wife and I are moving to Denver this summer. at the end of the month we are doing some house hunting. We hope to find something we love, but it has been an exhausting online search. We have a realtor to help us in our search, and has been very helpful. It seems that market is going crazy. We saw a house we loved, but by the time my realtor returned my call (3 hours had gone by)the house was under contact.

I have pretty much narrowed down a search for a house in the Southeast Aurora, or in the newer areas near Gun Club Road (Traditions subdivision). I know this area is close to Buckley AFB, but is the noise from the jets really bad. How often do they fly? Another area that has come up in our search is Sterling Hills. How is this area?

For the record, we have no children, so the quality of the schools are not high on the list. I do realize that it does affect resale value.

Thanks, any help would be great.

Houses that will be ready for a summer move aren't on the market yet.

What you might be concerned with are houses in the airport influence area. Buckley is not as busy as DIA.

I live in SE Aurora and I don't find the noise of the jets that onerous. They do fly over the house when the skies are clear but there are no sonic booms. I actually find it rather exciting to watch them do their turns, etc.
Sterling Hills is closer to the base than is Traditions, if that is a great concern, but neither area is that close.

Great map... I've never seen that before.

Living in Stapleton, I occassionally hear the planes at Buckley. Fighter jets, I'm assuming.

I'm probably weird in that I love having planes flying over my house. Depending on what runway is being used at DIA, sometimes my house is directly under the flight path and a plane comes over every few minutes. They're low enough that I can ususally ID the airline and aircraft. I've had Air Force One fly over low one time coming in to Buckley.

I think my dream location would be on the north side of LAX where there are condos that look right out at the runways. I could sit outside and watch planes come and go all day.
