My husband and I are looking to move from Plaza-Midwood to Monteith Park in Huntersville. We found a house we adore but there is a grassy area behind it that has some small power lines. They aren't a huge eyesore or anything and honestly it's nice that we don't have house right behind us. However, we do worry about the health effects of living close to the power lines. We would just look for another house in the neighborhood but we like the smaller 1.5 story houses and there are only 2 available in the neighborhood. Does anyone know how we could find out if they are high-voltage power lines?

Thanks for any advice!

Also another thing to consider is....Re-Sale! Most people do not want power lines right beside or behind them. Just something to consider.

There is no proven fact that power lines can cause any health problems. That's why it's not something that needs to be revealed like radon,mold etc etc... The RE commission has us Realtors stay neutral to the subject.....
