Can a Quiet Zone increase property value?

In a Quiet Zone, real estate values would likely rise approximately 10% in areas within the sound of the horn (local property appraisers).This may have a ripple effect on property values throughout the area and make homes in the area more attractive to buyers compared to those not located in a Quiet Zone.
