Helicopters do get away with more than fixed wing (evidence Live Eye in the Sky crews). And I see the military low over housing areas sometimes myself. I'me more concerned about Hercs (C-130s) flying low over suburban areas without lights and seemingly without sound as well. A low dramatically flying chopper over your hous - you wouldn't have to see it, you would have heard it. The pressure waves coming off rotor downwash would have shaken the place never mind the engine noise. I don't doubt you BIL saw something low over you home but maybe it wasn't a helicopter.
