Not just in Texas but anywhere high tension lines are, it certainly can affect the value. The biggest affect it has is desire, soem buyers may be put off by them or afraid to death of them, when you start to limit buyers, you limit your value.

I have yet to meet a buyer to whom it did not matter.

I've never seen anything that specifically analyzes discounts like this.
To some people it will matter and some it won't.
I probably wouldn't want it personally, but you will see plenty of others buy there so obviously it doesn't matter to some.

If you do all the right things to prep the home for sale you can offset some of the reduction.

Absolutely will as my colleagues have written below. Have the lines tested by the Power Company or ask for a report to evaluate. Many potential Buyers will not even enter homes where the overhead wires are present!

Hi Ozmendoza,

High tension power lines will lower the price for a property anywhere... Most people prefer not to own a home with power lines directly behind the property (unless they get it to a great price)... There is conflicting information about the health effects these utilities pose on humans, however aethetically not very appealing...

Best of luck,

I agree with Scott. If they don't lower the value it sure does reduce the number of buyers that will purchase it, which might end up being the same thing.
