My house is worth more than your house

house2Home owners should have recently received their tax assessment notice in the mail. Most people I have talked to have said their home values had changed very slightly compared to the year before, often only a $1,000 difference.  For the 2009 Property Assessment Roll only, BC Assessment provides property owners with the market value of properties as of both July 1, 2007 and July 1, 2008. The lower of these two values will become the 2009 assessed value for most properties

For a limited time though you can see everyone’s assessment at www.bcassessment.ca

On the left side at the top, click on “e-valueBC – Compare Assessments Online” and go from there. This is handy to compare your home to the value of your neighbours home.  Is the grass greener? Of course there is some

Remember this is a nit of a guess-timate. If you would like a free evaluation of your home and what its value is now, taking into account your recent reno’s and updates, call a real estate agent (ahem!) to set an appointment that works for you.
