Mistakes can happen in BC Assessments. Ask the South Surrey family whose property assessment jumped by over a million dollars from 2012 to 2013.

Turned out to be a clerical error that added a phantom 8,000 square feet to their top floor. So it’s always a good idea to check this year’s property assessment against last year’s for any kind of discrepancy.

BC Assessment determines values for all properties in BC so municipalities can tax property owners based on a single province-wide set of standards. Tax rates differ from one municipality to another because they’re set by the local governments, so even if the valuation of your home goes down, you could still pay more tax. BC Assessment isn’t responsible for that, only for the value it sets for your home.

If you have a house on the market, or are considering it, read on for seven tips that will make it easier to sell your house and make a smooth transition from one owner to the next. 
  1. Maintain Neutrality
    This policy has worked for Switzerland, and it can also work in real estate. Customizing your home is great if you plan to stay there, but extreme colors and themed rooms can scare off potential homebuyers. If you have customized every room with extremely bright or dark colored paint, wallpaper or wall fixtures, you may want to consider toning it down a bit. Using neutral colors on the walls can help prospective buyers create their own vision for the house, and will also leave them with less work to undo if they buy the house.

  2. Less Is More
    Even though you have not moved out yet, removing some of your furniture can help the house move off the market. If you...
