VANCOUVER, January 2024 – Michael C. Lount, B.A.Sc., AACI, P. App., RI, the independent Assessment Analysts at, announce the release of the 2024 property assessments for British Columbia. With 2,184,692 properties assessed throughout the province, property owners are encouraged to review their Assessment Notices, which reflect the market value as of July 1, 2023.

While the majority of the assessments are accurate, it is crucial to note that over 40,000 assessments were corrected in the previous year.

Appeals must be filed by January 31, of this year.

Commercial, industrial, and investment property owners should ensure their property assessment is independently reviewed. Independent reviews, of course, can not be done by the government-operated BC Assessment Authority. Property owners are encouraged to contact independent Assessment Analyst Mike Lount at or 604-727-7902 as soon as possible before January 31st. High-value residential properties with assessment value concerns are also urged to seek assistance.
Key Highlights for 2024:

  • Number of properties assessed: 2,184,692 (1% increase from 2023)
  • The total value of real estate assessed: $2.79 trillion (3% increase from 2023)
  • The total value of new construction, subdivisions, and rezoning: $40 billion in 2023
