Townhomes in Potter County are selling for an average of just under $73,000. These attached housing units are generally a good option for families and young people just getting started out. Having such a unit appraised by a trained real estate appraiser before placing it on the market enables a fair price to be generated for it, and the home to sell (usually) more quickly.
