Assessment Notices In the Mail
Prince George, B.C. – B.C. Assessment has sent out the property assessments for 2017, ( based on values as of July 1st of 2016) and a property on Chief Lake Road has the highest assessment in the Prince George region.
That property is calculated as having a value of $1.741 million dollars, but it is not the highest assessed property in the Northern Region. Four properties in Fort St John are listed with higher assessments, with the number one spot going to a property on 259 road in Ft. St. John assessed at $2.742 million.
Prince George has three in the top ten list for Northern B.C. with the Chief Lake Road property coming in at number 5, number 6 goes to a property on St. Dennis Road in College Heights with an assessed value of $1.710 million and number 8 on the top ten list is a residence on Keung road on Cranbrook Hill, assessed at $1.574 million.
The table below shows the change in the average single family home assessment over last year:

In the snail mail . The assessments have been avalible online for awhile .
I noticed that on the 1st of January.
Our house went up by 9.5%, most of it based on the improvements rather than the property ….. even though no improvements were made.
…and I saw a 25% increase on our leased lake property. Now we know how this government is making up for all the spending recently!
Did you look at comparable sales of lake property in the region? That would trigger an increase, not a directive from the government to assessment bc.
But, heck, its fun to make such statements isn’t it?
