On ancestry, what percent should one have from a region for it to be considered real (not noise)?

From what I've read on the forum, it seems like a subjective area in general. I think anything over 1% is less likely to be noise, but it doesn't mean it's real. Anything under 1% could be real. It depends if it appears on chromosomes and how often. Having matches in these regions might help identifying it.
