Utility pole on driveway of house.

Asked by Anne, Arcadia, CA Wed Jul 16, 2008

A house I was looking at has a utility pole on the side of its driveway. What is the effect of a utility pole on private property? I'm assuming it lowers the property value. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks!

Less people are willing to live with such a flaw - impacts aesthetics and some people are concerned about health affects of living under power lines, so it will take longer to sell. The same house could sell for more. I know I would not buy it, no matter if I liked the house! However, if you can get a great bargain and it does not bother you, then it might be the right place for you. Best of luck!
