Where is the twelve minute film about the fluorescents that were placed out in a field far away from overhead power lines?

Hard to say for sure but I agree there is a buyer for every home as long as it’s priced right.

Last year I sold my home on a busy street . It sold quick because inventory is low and the market is hot . But it was priced right , a bit lower than homes on less busy streets. Still went a little over asking because of multiple offers .


On the plus side the market is good right now in many places so it’s less likely to sit and sit on the market .

It all depends on the voltage in the wires. It usually requires 250,000 volts or more to create the emf that will cause a fluorescent tube to glow like a light stick (not illuminate), if the holder is barefooted and standing in wet grass, thereby intentionally grounding themselves to become a current conductor.

In my area many of the high voltage lines are 120KV and cannot produce this phenomena.

im sure ill be corrected if im wrong- but i think this could be an issue with fha loans. only if the property (structures?) are in the fall zone of a high voltage power pole.
