Property Assessments

We are here to answer your questions. Find the information you need including a schedule of important dates

Assessment Services are responsible for the classification and valuation of all property within the Town of High River to ensure fair and equitable distribution of taxes in accordance with provincially legislated standards.

The Assessment team is mandated by provincial legislation to fairly and equitably assess all property within the Town of High River that reflects market value on an annual basis.

Town of High River Assessment professionals assess residential, commercial and industrial properties to determine the estimated market value. This value is then used in the calculation of property taxes. Assessors conduct property inspections throughout the year. While not all properties are inspected, you may see an assessor in your neighbourhood.

By sending property assessment notices in advance of the property tax notices, owners can review their assessments and raise any concerns they may have about their assessed value before taxes are calculated.

    Determining Market Value

    The Town of High River bases the current year’s property assessment on the real estate market condition as of the July 1 of the previous year.

    For more information on housing market value in the High River area, read the Calgary Real Estate Board (CREB) Forecast Report.

    Assessors evaluate properties based on several variables including:

    • Age
    • Lot & home size
    • Building features & finishes
    • Construction quality
    • Property location

    Assessors consider many of the same factors that a homeowner would when they choose to purchase a home.

    The purpose of the assessment is not to reflect a single sale price, but to assess all properties at typical market value on the same valuation date.

    If you disagree with your assessment, the first step is to contact the Town of High River Assessment Department.
