There were other insights in the assessment numbers.

Overall, Squamish’s real estate has grown by an average of about 10 to 18 per cent, the estimates say.

Light industry and residential properties are up by an average of about 10 per cent, while business and “other” properties are up by about 18.2 per cent.

The figures that were just released were collected in July 2017 and are compared relative to July 2016.

The assessed values for Squamish single family homes are increasing more than houses in the Lower Mainland, particularly the Vancouver-North Shore community, said Paul Borgo, acting assessor for the Greater Vancouver region.

“Vancouver has had probably had less change, and Squamish and the Fraser Valley kind of comparably had similar change,” Borgo added.

“Overall, given our past increases of last year, it’s calmer and more stable but still on the positive side typically speaking for the Squamish properties.”

Last year, the increases in property values were greater, he said.

“Squamish is still doing well,” he added. “Our assessed values show good numbers for houses there.”
