Is your BC Assessment fair market value?

According to BC Assessment, “fair market value” is defined as the estimated price that a property would sell for on the open market as of July 1st from the previous year. This value is determined by considering recent sales of similar properties in the same neighbourhood, as well as other factors such as land size, building age and condition, and any special features or amenities that the property may have.
