Falmouth Wind Turbine Victim Gets 22 percent decline in property value http://falmouth.patriotproperties.com/Summary.asp?AccountNumber=8020
April 18, 2014
Contrary to Mass. CEC’s claim of no loss of value because of nearby wind turbine placement, my Falmouth home and half acre at 27 Ridgeview Drive in Craggy Ridge was this week granted an abatement of $855 on this year’s property tax by Falmouth’s Board of Assessors.
That is ~$132,000 off of their $589,500 initial assessment.
This is a 22% decline.
In January of 2012 my home was valued at $714,000 for a refinance.
This coupled with the Falmouth ZBA’s 4-0 decision that the turbines are indeed a nuisance with a mitigation order to the Town should begin to convince many local residents of the detriment wind turbines impose on their property value when these TOO CLOSE TOO BIG wind turbines are situated in their back/front yards.
If logical reasoning of health and quality of life issues has not opened your eyes, these numbers should significantly improve your vision.
Sincerely, Barry Funfar
