I would research this information on the internet and formulate your own opinion. I would tell you that as a realtor selling homes that although you may get a great buy now, The future sale of this property will undergo the same scrutiny that it is under now and it may affect the sale at a later date.

No if you have small kids it can cause cancer. Our realtor was pressuring us in buying a house that was started at 450 and sellers actually bought it for 470 two years back. He told us the seller will take 420 bid, two days lated the house price was already 440. My husband was trying to figure whats wrong with this house as it looked perfect inside and same development houses were selling way above 450. Offcourse our realtor never told about power tower and later he said its safe if its over 100ft. We did research and it says its not safe upto atleast half mile specially with younger kids and we have 4 year old.

Hi Sam, do your research so that you can evaluate the safety for yourself. I had a buyer who considered this very question and began with a google search and found loads of info to consider. As a real estate agent I will tell you that a power tower near your home will affect its future marketability.

Good luck to you.
