Assessment Increases by Area
2017 Versus 2016


If your % increase in value is greater than the average, you may be over assessed and an appeal merited.  However, it is very important to make sure the assessment is not too low before appealing.  BCA can increase values.  Nor does “no increase” mean your assessment is correct, as it may well have been wrong the previous year.

Assessed value often does not equal market value as BC Assessment do mass appraisals, that may not have taken the particular features of your property into consideration.

But, of utmost importance, your property assessment needs to be equitable with your neighbor’s and that may be below market value.

If your assessment increased by a greater % than the average, then your assessment could be too high. Call us to discuss a review of your assessment.
