Single-family home values up 33% in Delta

Condo, townhome values up 13 per cent, according to latest data from BC Assessment

The value of single-family homes in Delta increased by 33 per cent for 2022, according to data released by BC Assessment Tuesday (Jan. 4).

In the next few days, over one million Lower Mainland property owners will be receiving their 2022 assessment notices, which reflect market value as of July 1, 2021.

According to BC Assessment, single-family property values in the Lower Mainland region — which includes Greater Vancouver, the Fraser Valley, the Sea to Sky area and the Sunshine Coast — went up between 11 and 45 per cent (UBC Endowment Lands and Hope, respectively), while the value of strata residential properties (e.g. condominiums and townhomes) increased by seven to 29 per cent (Vancouver and Squamish, respectively).

In Delta, the typical assessed value of a single-family home jumped by 33 per cent, from $968,000 to $1,285,000. The typical assessed value of a strata residential home, meanwhile, rose by 13 per cent, from $552,000 to $625,000.

2022 property assessments are currently available online at bcassessment.ca.

Overall, the total value of real estate in the Lower Mainland rose by almost 20 per cent compared to 2021 — from about $1.46 trillion in 2021 to about $1.75 trillion — with more than $23.7 billion of the region’s updated assessments coming from new construction, subdivisions and the rezoning of properties.

“British Columbia’s real estate market remains highly active and that means most property owners can expect higher assessment values for 2022,” BC Assessment deputy assessor Bryan Murao said in a press release. “The widely reported heightened demand among homebuyers during the COVID-19 pandemic is reflected in the upward movement of property values across the province.”

“Similarly, commercial and industrial properties across the province continue to show signs of recovery,” Murao added.
