Find out views on windmills  

If you think you may someday want to sell your Catskills home if retirement or other career or family matters require you to relocate, you should read here what is happening to one such homeowner.

As a Delaware County Realtor with extensive experience in our region, I’ve had to watch as a wonderful senior-citizen couple in the town of Stamford have had three potential sales of their lovely farmhouse and 30 acres collapse for the sole reason that industrial wind turbines could be within view of their property.

The couple is relocating to Maryland to be closer to their family but have been unable to sell their long-time home even though buyers had agreed to the price. When the buyers learned about the planned industrial turbines in the vicinity, all three canceled their offers.

When you go to vote for your town representatives you should find out which ones are opposing the turbine projects and vote for them because if the turbines are approved, they will seriously compromise your property values if you can make a sale at all. That is not hypothetical. It comes from real, current experience _ and one I’ve directly lost money from.

But the owners are in even worse shape for not being able to sell at all.
