My friend lived near a major commercial international airport and it totally sucked! His house rattled all the time. The chandelier would rattle and the windows would rattle.
I'm surprised a sonic boom wouldn't shake buildings. I believe they banned concords from flying over land because I think the sonic booms would shatter windows!
I'm not sure what would make the house shake aside from an earthquake, but I do know that living near an airport was a real estate nightmare for my friend's parents.
