How is Market Value Determined?
The real estate market sets the value of your property. Our Assessors measure that market utilizing mass appraisal techniques, which determine property values by grouping similar properties as of a specific date. Market value assessments may vary depending on geographic location, building style and size of property. All assessments are prepared in accordance with the Municipal Government Act and the requirements of the Matters Relating to Assessment and Taxation Regulation.
