How are property values determined?
The Valuer-General revalues properties every year. The capital improved value of the land also takes into account improvements such as a home, veranda, shed or swimming pool. Sales of all property types are analysed to determine market movements. This analysis of sales happens throughout the year. For more information, visit the link below:
