Assessment Notices In the Mail

Tuesday, January 3, 2017 @ 9:28 AM

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:

Community Average  Res. Assessment Change from Last year
Prince George $286.000 6.29%
Mackenzie $163,000 6.13%
Valemount $192,000 9.38%
Vanderhoof $224,000 .89%
Quesnel $194,000 4.12%






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?
