I have a neighbor who plays drums in the garage of his SFH, and he's on the next block over. It's maddening. I mean it. There are times I want to start hurling bricks over the back fence. It's all day long on weekends sometimes, and well past 10 pm on some nights. It sounds like some kind of Latin polka music.

:shock:

Walking the dog off leash - this isn't your f+++ing farm!

Cleaning the car by dumping its contents on to the street.

Do not move to my building.

Most condos and apartments aren't designed for that kind of noise isolation.
That pretty much settles it for me. I've flirted with buying a condo in KC but my wife is a professional pianist and earns her living as such. I am more of a hack but still enjoy playing guitar enough to not to want to be limited by the fear that I would become a nuisance to my neighbors. :( :(

Good to know though. I can concentrate entirely on SF dwellings yet still in the urban core.

Perhaps you would consider a townhome in the downtown area? https://www.realtor.com/realestateandho ... 55?view=qv
