Whether you’ve already received yours or are expecting one soon, if you’re among the 374,600 property owners throughout Vancouver Island to receive a 2020 assessment notice from BC Assessment, you may already be reevaluating your future property decisions for the coming year.
These assessments — which reflect property values as of July 2019 — are issued yearly by BC Assessment based on their yearly analysis of the relevant data. The picture that’s being painted is one of relative stability, especially in the southern areas of Vancouver Island, with shifts falling primarily in the range of -5% to +5%. However, further upland there are more significant examples of volatility, especially in terms of price increases.
