Manufactured home assessments

Manufactured homes are assessed based on their market value. Most manufactured homes within Calgary are assessed using the sales comparison approach to value and is based on The City of Calgary’s estimate of the market value of the property on July 1 of the year prior to taxation, and the characteristics and condition of the property as of Dec. 31 of the year prior to taxation.

Market value

Market value is the most likely price a property would sell for on the open market from a willing seller to a willing buyer on a given date.

The market value of residential properties is calculated through a method known as mass appraisal.
