Some Metro Vancouver single-family home assessments will increase by 50% in 2017: B.C. AssessmentDecember 7, 2016 7:48 pm
Single-family homes in Metro Vancouver and Squamish will face hikes of up to 50 per cent on their 2017 B.C. Assessments to be mailed out in the new year at the same time as homeowners learn house prices are dropping.
And a Vancouver appraiser who sits on a review panel that hears homeowners’ complaints about what the government thinks their houses are worth expects to hear from more than usual this year.
Almost five per cent of homeowners across B.C. can expect higher taxes because their properties have risen higher than the average in their municipality, according to assessor Jason Grant.
