UPDATE: Assessed home values in Delta to drop 9% in 2020

Assessment notices were mailed to property owners last week

The value of residential properties in Delta is expected to decrease in 2020, according to BC Assessment.

Last week, the agency sent assessment notices reflecting market values as of July 1, 2019 to more than one million property owners in the Lower Mainland. According to BC Assessment, the value of single-family properties in the region is expected to drop between one and 16 per cent this year, while the value of strata residential properties (e.g. condominiums) is expected to drop by four to 10 per cent.

In Delta, the typical assessed value of a single-family home is expected to drop by nine per cent, from $1,003,000 to $917,000. The typical assessed value of strata residential properties, meanwhile, is expected to drop by four per cent, from $568,000 to $545,000.

2020 property assessments are currently available online at bcassessment.ca.

Overall, the total value of real estate in the Lower Mainland is expected to fall by five per cent compared to 2019 — from about $1.48 trillion to about $1.41 trillion — with $18.6 billion of the region’s updated assessments coming from new construction, subdivisions and the rezoning of properties.
