Market Valuation Standard Requirements

The municipal Acts state that the “Market Valuation Standard” is achieved when the assessed value of property:

 

  1. is prepared using mass appraisal;
  2. is an estimate of the market value of the estate in fee simple in the property;
  3. reflects typical market conditions for similar properties; and
  4. meets quality assurance standards established by Order of the Agency.

 

Quality assurance standards have been established by Orders of the Agency. The Orders determine the standards, the property groups, and the calculation procedure to be used to test for each standard:

 


On behalf of the municipal assessor, assessment service providers are to provide SAMA with information necessary for the purposes of reviewing the municipality’s compliance with the quality assurance standards established by the Order. This requirement is established in section 163.1 of The Cities Act, section 193.1 of The Municipalities Act, and section 215.1 of The Northern Municipalities Act.

 

The following Quality Assurance Standards Reports list municipalities that are in compliance with the quality assurance standards:
