New Data Shows What Your House Is Worth In BC & It's Probably More Than You Think

B.C. is one of the most expensive places to buy a house in Canada, and you can now easily find out exactly how much yours is worth.

As housing prices rise, your home might actually be worth even more than you thought it was. On the B.C. Assessment Authority website, you can see what your home was valued at as of July 1, 2021.

In 2022, house prices in Canada are expected to rise even more than they have already, but this website can give you a good idea of what your house would sell for now.

According to WOWA, the average selling price for a B.C. house in November 2021 was a steep $992,844. In Vancouver, the benchmark price that same month was a daunting $1,211,200.

For B.C., this means there was an increase of 21.9% from November 2020.

So, if you're now wondering how much your home has increased in price, go to the BC Assessment website and type in your address.

Once you enter your address, it will show you the total value of your home as of July 1, 2021. It breaks this down further to show you the amount the buildings on the property are worth as well as the value of the land.

It also shows you the value of your home from the previous year, so you can calculate how much it increased.

There's also other information about the house that may be available on the website — like the year it was built, the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, the floor area and land size, and the sales history in the past three years.

It's pretty interesting to check out, and it could be super helpful if you're thinking about moving anytime soon.

Moving anywhere can be super stressful, but a whole other layer is added when you are in an entirely different province from the one you're headed to.

Going across the country a lot of the time means that you can't even physically see your new home. It makes the entire process a lot more complicated.

Vancouver is known for its expensive cost of living, which gets especially tricky if you want to have kids. Some people have decided that it's not worth it to start a family here and are packing their bags.

Inevitably, kids require people to spend more money. In a city that already has super high rent and home prices, it makes sense that some people don't want — or financially can't afford — to have children there.

In the midst of all the defeating headlines that keep young would-be homebuyers up at night, there’s a glimmer of hope — well, depending how you look at it — on the housing price front in British Columbia (BC).

According to the BC Real Estate Association (BCREA), the province’s real estate sales could drop 25% after the Bank of Canada’s anticipated rate tightening — and prices could finally moderate too.
