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.
