Where is Powell Ohio?

by Maureen McCabe on November 23, 2007

THERE WAS a MAP here…  *

Compare the map above to the map for the “Powell Neighborhood” of Columbus on Realtor.com Neighborhoods *

The map above is of the City  of Powell from the Columbus Board of Realtors multiple listing service.  Each green dot is a home listed.  There are only 99 green dots on the map because that is the limit to map but there are 170 some homes on the market within the City of Powell.  The Realtor.com map in the link is a map of all the homes for sale within the 43065 ZIP code (all homes with a Powell mailing address), over 500 houses.

What Realtor.com Neighborhoods describes as the “Powell Neighborhood” is the 43065 ZIP code. The R.com info about the City of Powell is from Wikipedia.

Wikipedia about Powell Ohio.

As the map shows the area R.com Neighborhoods is calling the “Powell Neighborhood” is partially in Franklin County.  The City of Powell is totally in Delaware County.  Also included in the 43065 ZIP code are homes in Delaware County townships.

R.com Neighborhoods says “Average Home Price $309,900″(single family and condominiums averaged together) for what it  calls the Powell Neighborhood.  How does  “Average Home Price $309,900″ compare to reality? Not even close.

Residential Properties – Single Family and Condominium

City of Powell -  Average Home Price $370,244
Franklin County, primarily City of Columbus 
with a 43065 ZIP -  Average Home Price – $173,712
Delaware County
homes outside the City of Powell with a 43065 ZIP – Average Home Price - $479,243


ZIP code 43065 -  Average Home Price $418,840

Neighborhoods in the City of Powell include Golf Village, Bartholomew Run, Olentangy Ridge,  Grandshire, Lakes of Powell, Liberty Hills,  Murphy’s Park, Falcon Ridge,  Ashmoore, The Chase… and more.

I can not figure out how R.com got an average price of $309,900.  Although the very affordable Franklin County neighborhoods have an average price of $173,712 (single family homes and condominiums) there are less than 50 homes for sale in Franklin County with a 43065 ZIP code.

The City of Powell is part of the Olentangy School District.  The homes in Franklin County in the 43065 ZIP code are in the Dublin, Worthington or Columbus school Districts.  The homes in Franklin County that are lumped in are in neighborhoods like Summitview Woods in the Dublin School District, Reserve at Sawmill Park Condos in the Columbus School District and  Woodbridge Green, Squirrel Hill, Smoky Ridge Estates, Smoky Ridge Village, Smokey Row Estates, Laurel Laramie (condos), Woodbridge Village (condos) and Western Hills in the Worthington School District.  Nice Franklin County neighborhoods, very affordable in comparison to the average home in Delaware County. The majority of the Franklin County properties with a Powell mailing address are in the City of Columbus.  There are links to school info below.

All information in the MLS is “Information deemed reliable but not guaranteed.”  Somehow R.com has taken that information and really made a mess out of it.

The map at the top, shows old boundaries for the City of Powell.  Powell annexed land north-west of Powell a few years ago, that is where the Golf Village subdivisions are located.

Edit 2013 missing map…  link going to REALTOR.com home search…  Link to my site going to Real Living’s site. Slideshow disappeared when that site disappeared.   Spring clean up thanks to a spam comment  about the Japanese Banana Diet.   *Links broken.
