Understanding Your BC Assessment – What Homeowners Need to Know

As the latest BC Assessments roll out, many homeowners are keenly reviewing the assessed values of their properties. It's crucial to understand what these figures represent and how they impact you. In this blog, we'll demystify the BC Assessment and guide you through what you really need to know.

Understanding BC Assessments

First things first: BC Assessments are not the current market value of your home. These assessments reflect the estimated value of your property as of July 1, 2023. This date is important because it means the assessment is based on the market conditions six months ago.

Market Changes and Assessment Accuracy

Since July 1, 2023, there have been significant rate increases and market shifts. These changes can greatly affect the current value of properties, making the BC Assessment potentially less reflective of today's market value. It's a snapshot of the past, not an up-to-the-minute valuation.

The Purpose of BC Assessments

So, what's the point of these assessments? They are primarily used by the City to determine your property tax. It's a tool for taxation purposes, rather than a current market evaluation.
