If my home is near the rail line, will this affect my property values?
Studies from around the country show that property values are usually enhanced by their proximity to a passenger rail station. Studies also have shown that property values are usually not affected one way or the other by their proximity to passenger rail lines if they are not located close to a station. These studies provide additional research data and information: "Assessment of the Potential Fiscal Impacts of Existing and Proposed Transit-Oriented Development in the Dallas Area Rapid Transit Service Area", "The Estimated Value of New Investment Adjacent to DART LRT Stations: 1999-2005", "Impacts of Rail Transit on Property Values", “Impacts of Transit Rail Lines on Property Values” Draft Report”, “Impacts of Transit Rail Lines on Property Values” RailVolution 2007 Presentation”, "Light-rail can turn into money train."
