Assessed Value of a Property

Properties in Quebec are assessed by their regional county municipality or municipalité régionale de comté (MRC) every three years. MRCs are political entities that were established in 1979 to deal primarily with land use such as establishing plans for waste management and preparing evaluation rolls. Each MRC conducts assessments and releases the assessment rolls independently. 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.
