Did you get a surprise when you opened your property assessment notice from the provincial government?  Depending on where the property is located, and whether you have made any improvements, the value assigned could be higher or lower than last year.  Many people bemoan a higher value, believing it will lead to higher property taxes, which could be true or not depending on the mill rate decided on by the taxing authority.  You can appeal the assessment, but if you think you may be selling in the next few years then a higher assessment will be an asset.  


BC Assessment has a very useful web site with links to the assessed values of all BC properties, understanding the assessment process, and how to appeal your assessment.  https://www.bcassessment.ca/
