Nine Revelstoke properties have broken into the top 100 of the highest valued residential properties in the Kootenay-Columbia region.
BC Assessment released its new valuations for properties all over the province today.
“The majority of residential home owners within the region can expect an increase compared to last year’s assessment,” said deputy assessor Ramaish Shah. “Some markets have advanced more than others. Revelstoke, for instance, has seen strong demand for housing over the past year. Some areas have seen a decrease in demand as well, and this is reflected in the current assessed values.”
In the Kootenay-Columbia region, which covers from Fernie to Grand Forks and from Revelstoke to Cranbrook, the total assessments increased to $40.87 billion from $38.6 billion last year.
In Revelstoke, single-family residential properties rose in value on average from $360,000 in the 2017 valuation (completed in 2016) to $436,000 in the 2018 valuation (completed in 2017).
