What is the impact on a real estate area that is located near (within 25-40 miles) of a nuclear power plant???

I guess that the historical safety record of the plant would need to be considered. The one I can think of is the Three Mile Island incident in 1979. There is no doubt that property values experience a negative impact.

The same can be said of properties that are in close proximity to waste dumps, burial grounds, manufacturing plants, etc.

I live [stay at] a place that is very close to the Atlantic Ocean in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida ~ we experience hurricanes and that could be a disaster. California has earthquakes and the mid western states experience tornados and typhoons. There are hazrds just about everywhere.

Rickie, I live about 6 miles from the St Lucie Nuclear Plant, and I can honestly say that i have never lost a buyer because of the plant. It is where it is!

well you dont have to worry if something happened, you wouldnt be around to see if prices fall or not. In reality though yes it could affect some. value is perceived as what someoen is willing to pay for something, if there is less people interested then the vale could be less. Here in NH we have the Seabrook Nuclear plant, accross the marsh and river is Hampton BEach. A resort community. The plant now that it is up and running has no affect on values being on the ocean. It is just a pleasant glow in the night to look at accross the river.
