What is an Assessor?

An Assessor is someone who determines the value of land, buildings, businesses, structures and certain types of equipment for property tax purposes. Assessors determine these values by:

  • inspecting the different types of properties including farm land, single family residences, hotels, office buildings, industrial sites and facilities
  • then the assessor will collect and analyze the information that relates to the value of a property or a business ( for example, information on sales, rental income, costs, and market conditions)
  • and classifying and estimate property values according to the assessment legislation using valuation techniques and data. 

  • Brown House

What will affect my assessment on my home?

City assessors evaluate properties based on a number of variables including:

  • Lot and home size
  • Finished basement
  • Construction quality
  • Location

After completing the analysis, fair values for all Grande Prairie properties are prepared with the aid of a computerized appraisal system developed in accordance with international standards.
