Properties in Alberta are assessed using a ‘mass appraisal’ method, which is the process of valuing a group of properties as of a given date using common data, mathematical models, and statistical tests. Information is collected by gathering data from on-site visits (as described above), real estate Multiple Listing Services (MLS), Alberta Land Titles, and financial institutions.
If you still disagree with the Assessor’s evaluation after contacting them, you can file an official complaint and appeal. Information about the appeal process is available at www.chestermere.ca/assessment.
