CENTRAL OKANAGAN - When it comes to property values, Kelowna is the clear leader among communities in the Thompson-Okanagan region, dominating the top 100 most valuable properties list.
B.C. Assessment’s annual property valuations show a waterfront home 4358 Hobson Rd. in Kelowna was assessed at $9.51 million, the clear leader in the top 100 residential property assessments in the region.
Second place wasn't even close. Another waterfront home in Kelowna 4460 Lakeland Rd. came in at $7.54 million.
Kelowna ruled the rest of the top ten (except for one in West Kelowna) all valued between $6.93 million and $6.3 million.
You have to go to number 26 — a $5.38 million waterfront home at 8200 Kalavista Dr. on Kalamalka Lake in Coldstream — before the list even leaves the Central Okanagan.
Summerland jumps into the list at 48 with a home at 903 Dent St. valued at $4.39 million.
Sun Peaks resort near Kamloops cracks the list at 93 with a mountain property worth $3.66 million at 4141 Douglas Ct., but it is one of only four properties outside the Central Okanagan that make the cut.
Of course, there’s always a bigger fish. The Hobson Road home in Kelowna, tops in the region, comes in a paltry 519th when measured against provincial home valuations.
