Property Impairment

Issue: Will a proposed natural gas pipeline impair property values?

Approach: HMG conducted a large-scale property-by-property search for residential property sales near a pipeline and prepared an extensive paired property evaluation, comparing those with properties located away from a pipeline. Such a thorough evaluation of a large data set helped ensure that the analysis was valid. An impartial conclusion was presented to the energy company so it could have a foundation for its next phase of the project, including community meetings with property owners and property acquisitions.
