The City of Charlottetown is the capital city of Prince Edward Island and is located on the island's south side on Port Charlottetown. From 2016 to 2021, Charlottetown's population grew by 7.5%, and it now has over 38K residents. In August 2023, the average home price in Prince Edward Island was $391K, an increase of 1.7% from August 2022 and an increase of 141% from 10 years ago. The province has been experiencing a slowdown in the construction industry due to a shortage of construction workers and a probable lack of interest from investors. The province had estimated a requirement of 2,000 new builds in the province each year to keep up with the population growth; however, the number will likely be revised to a higher number.

Most properties are assessed using a market value-based approach. There are three ways that uses to determine a property’s market value:

  1. Direct Comparison Approach
  2. Residential properties are valued under this approach. This compares the sales of similar properties in the assessment year to determine a valuation for the property. The assessed value may not equal the actual market value or sale value of a property.

  3. Cost Approach
  4. Unique and rarely traded properties are valued under this approach. This uses the cost of the property if someone were to rebuild it to determine a valuation for the property minus depreciation due to age or other factors. This includes the price of the land and the price of all improvements (e.g. buildings) on top of it. While this takes into account the market value of the land, it does not consider the market value of the property as a whole.

  5. Income Approach
  6. For properties that are dedicated to generating income like rental properties or offices, an income-based approach is used. This approach uses the income generated by the property as well as the sales price to determine its assessed value.
