“The majority of residential home owners within the region can expect an increase compared to last year’s assessment,” Assessor Laura Schwagele said. “This year, we have seen a strong demand in our residential strata market and this has resulted in a larger increase compared to the residential single family detached homes.”

The “estimated typical percentage changes” in the Fraser Valley have residential single detached homes ranging from a five per cent decrease in value to a 25 per cent increase while residential strata units — condominiums, for example — are seeing a 10 to 40 per cent increase in value.

Commercial property values have increased by five to 35 per cent, and light industrial by five per cent to 30 per cent.

For single detached residences in Surrey, North Surrey properties are looking at a six per cent increase, from $701,000 to $746,400 and in Central Surrey, $803,000 to 909,000 (up 13 per cent); East Surrey $846,000 to $936,000 (11 per cent increase), while in tony South Surrey the increase is negligible, from $1,196,000 to $1,201,000.
