Just received a copy of Maine Association of Realtors' 14 page booklet entitled "Residential Property Transaction Booklet". On page 3 they provide a list of non-physical property conditions a buyer ought to investigate before signing a Purchase and Sale Agreement. One of the items mentioned is
"Existing and proposed transportation, construction and development which may affect noise, view, or traffic... (wind power development, natural gas pipelines, etc.)"
Is this the first instance of the MAR acknowledging that wind energy development can hurt property values?
