Whether its heritage, modern, waterfront or farm; Powell River offers a wide range of housing options at a very affordable price. The average selling price of a single family home in the community is $230,000, and it is very hard to find one without at least a partial view of the ocean. The Townsite neighbourhood has been of particular interest to new residents. Designated a national historic site, the neighbourhood is a rare example of a company planned town that was constructed at the beginning of the 20th century. The heritage cottage style homes have been popular with both young families and retirees.
