The big sell: This fully furnished home features an open layout with contemporary maple cabinetry in the kitchen, a living room with a gas stove fireplace, loft space and renovations that include hardwoods and tile flooring throughout, wiring, paint and insulation. An unfinished basement provides opportunity for expansion for the home, which is on a 30-by-100-foot lot. According to listing realtor Marie-Claude Germain, Rossland features some of the most affordable real estate of any B.C. ski town: House prices range from $155,000 for a "fixer-upper" to $900,000 for a house and acreage with subdivision potential. Prices have remained stable, with a solid economy derived in part from tourism -- Rossland was rated a "Top 10 Adventure Town" in North America by National Geographic Adventure magazine.
