I was chatting with a buyer I’m working with the other day and we went to see a property over in Indian Peaks (Lafayette). It had been on the market for an extended time (given the area). After looking at Google Earth I noticed an empty lot next door to the house, in a neighborhood that has been built out for years. I remembered seeing a pipeline project in the area a few weeks before. When I arrived I understood why the property had stayed on the market. There was a newly erected natural gas pipeline router under construction in the lot next door. Sure you could probably put up with it but the resale is where I see the problem. Location, location, location! Maybe not important in the present but for the future; red flags. Sure you may get it for a bargain price and your anxiety or angst won’t peak for several years, just not a great idea for the big picture. I give you the full picture not just part of the picture.
