I saw no answers that speak to this question during my search, so I thought I'd put it out there myself.
Do cell towers lower residential property value? Have there been any studies published that link a correlation between home values and cell tower proximity?
What is the hang-up folks have with cell towers in or near their neighborhoods/subdivisions? Is it purely aesthetic?
Everybody wants great cell coverage, but no one wants the hardware in place to make that happen.
I'm trying to formualte a defensible opinion of a propsed cell tower on a orphan piece of low-density SFR, and can hear the torches being lit and the pitch forks being sharpened already. Some of the arguments center around questionable looks, others tout the loss of home values.
Beauty is in the eye of the beer-holder, so we can't debate what's pretty and what's not, but land values? Is there a credible way to support or refute this argument? Seems to me to be a WAG from an anti-, not sound criteria on which to formulate an opinion.
