The Top Ten List

By Greg Petzold (Winnipeg)

An Assessed Value Reality Check from Planet Vancouver

2014 brought some record sale prices for Winnipeg homes. For the first time a Winnipeg home sold for $3 million. But in real estate, as in life, everything is relative.
In January, the B.C. Assessment Authority released their Top 500 list of B.C. home assessments. It’s an eye-opener to compare Vancouver’s highest 2015 assessed values to the corresponding top Winnipeg assessed values.


2015 Residential Assessed Values Comparison

The most expensive Vancouver home is a 30,600 square foot Kitsilano mansion owned by Lululemon founder Chip Wilson. Yes, it’s on the water.  Winnipeg’s highest 2015 assessment is a riverfront home on Wellington Crescent.

Most of the top ten are in West Vancouver-an amazing five are on the same street. B.C. Assessment actually lists 289 homes in the province with assessed values greater than $10 million.

Winnipeg currently has 15 homes with assessed values greater than $2 million.

B.C.Assessment’s 2015 roll reflects market value as of July 1, 2014 while the Winnipeg values cited here are still at April 1, 2012 market value.
