Market value is the valuation standard set by provincial legislation and is the basis for property valuation across Alberta. Market value is the probable price your property could sell for in a competitive and open market, as of a given date. Market value is recognized as the most understandable, transparent & objective measure of a property’s worth. The market value as shown on your Assessment & Taxation notice is based on a legislated valuation date of July 1st of the prior year and reflects the physical condition of your property as of December 31st of the prior year.
How are Market Value Assessments Prepared
Market value assessments are prepared using mass appraisal. This is the process of valuing a group of properties at a given date, using standard methods and allowing for statistical testing. For residential property, assessors compile, review and analyze information from all legitimate real estate sale transactions that have occurred within the Summer Village of Ross Haven over the 12-month period prior to the valuation date. This process results in the estimated value of your property as of July 1st of the prior year.
