Asked by Bhaskar, California • Tue Mar 22, 2011
We are looking for property and found a house we loved it.. everything about it is what we were looking for. The only problems my realtor pointed out is, the big backyard has power lines that run over the very back of it almost after fence of this home. The yard is about 40 feet deep and they go over the land at about the 45 foot mark. I know it might make the resale price go down a little and make it take longer to sell. I know we can't completely ignore it, but if everything about the house is exactly what we want and then should we worry as much about the power lines if they don't bother us?
Are there any health risks associated with being so close to these lines? Would these cause any issues with TV, cell phone, cordless phone or wireless network reception or cause issues with DSL? If high winds or a nasty storm rip through the neighborhood and knocks a line loose, is there a decent chance the line would cause the house to catch fire if it touches the house?
