Can the garage be converted into a hanger?  Then I can fly to work.

 

Actually there are subdivisions which are basically designed for private pilots and you keep your plane right at your home.

I enjoyed this Chicago Tribune article  -- 

Runway communities put airstrips in pilots' backyards

Saw a funny show with an episode similar to this.  One of the characters became a realtor (very funny story arc there) and had to sell a condo right next to a church with insanely loud bells.  She found the perfect buyers... deaf nuns!

 

Of course, price is always a key factor when location is bad.

Some people really like watching planes so it could work out great. Also as others have said, if the airport expands you are sure to make a great profit.

We are in a situation where the Air Force Academy changed their flight path and now there are low flying aircraft over expensive homes. Many home owners are not pleased.

If it's "just minutes away from the airport" any would be buyers would most likely be aware of the noise and extra traffic in the area. Homes are sold near air ports every day so I would list it and remark that its near the airport.

You learn the flight schedule and show the home every other time. But realistically most homes close to our airpoort are sound proofed, values are lower and some buyers actually dont mind as they get a bogger home for less money.

It's still about location. I would take the listing if it had some nice features and the sellers would price it right. I actually had a rural property close to a growing airport. It was in a subdivision with flight patterns right over the area. Priced it right and it sold.
