Residential property assessments shoot up by 30-50 per cent for Lower Mainland

Single family homes in Vancouver, the North Shore, Squamish, Burnaby, Richmond, Surrey and the Tri-Cities spiked this year

Assessments for Greater Vancouver homes have risen by 30-50 per cent.

Residential home owners across the Lower Mainland could see up to a 50 per cent spike in property assessments, according to numbers released by B.C. Assessment.

“Increases of 30 to 50 per cent will be typical for single-family homes in Vancouver, North Shore, Squamish, Burnaby, Tri-Cities, Richmond and Surrey,” said assessor Jason Grant, noting that assessments don’t directly translate to property taxes.

Typical multifamily residential increases will be in the 15 to 30 per cent range.

Commercial and industrial properties throughout the Greater Vancouver area will see significant but smaller increases in the 10 to 30 per cent range, with properties being purchased for eventual redevelopment often exceeding these ranges.
