2023 BC Assessment Is Out

BC Assessment 2023 

The 2023 British Columbia Assessment is an annual process that determines the value of properties throughout the province for the purpose of property taxation. This year's assessment has recently been released, and it shows some interesting trends in the real estate market in BC.

One notable trend is that the overall value of properties in the province has continued to increase. According to the 2023 assessment, the average value of a single-family home in BC has increased by 5 to 15% compared to the previous year. 


Another trend that is evident in the 2023 assessment is the disparity in property values between different regions of the province. Some areas, such as the Lower Mainland and the Victoria region, have seen much larger increases in property values compared to other parts of the province. This is likely due to the strong demand for housing in these areas and the limited supply of available properties.


On January 4,2023, the authority will announce the full extent of property value increases throughout the province.

These updated assessments come after a significant period of growth in the real estate market between July 2020 and July 2021, during which house prices in Canada increased by 34%. This trend continued from July 2021 through the beginning of 2022. However, as inflation started to rise, the government increased interest rates, which has cooled the housing market. As a result, BC Assessment has warned homeowners that the value of their property as of July 2022 may not reflect the current state of the housing market.


Overall, the 2023 British Columbia Assessment provides valuable information about the state of the real estate market in the province. It is an important tool for homeowners, as it determines their property taxes for the year. However, it is important to keep in mind that the assessment may not accurately reflect the current state of the market, and that property values can change significantly over time.
