KAMLOOPS - The four most expensive properties in the Thompson Cariboo region total more than $11 million in value, and they are all located in Sun Peaks.
The most expensive property is once again 4141 Douglas Crt at $3.51 million, though the value fell from the $3.545 it was pegged at in 2014. In total eight of the top 10 and 13 of the top 20 valued properties in the region are in Sun Peaks. Just like last year 11 of the 15 properties valued over $2 million in the region are once again in Sun Peaks.
This year a total of 30 Kamloops properties cracked the list and the lowest valued property on the top-100 list for the region is $1,147,000. All areas of the city saw at least modest increases in the average assessment roll value though Barnhartvale, with an average property value of $391,000, saw the biggest jump, about $24,000, over 2014.
The most expensive area, on average, is Valleyview with a nearly $500,000 average property value. None of the 10 most expensive homes in Kamloops are in the Valleyview area.
Of the overall $500 million increase to the City of Kamloops assessment roll, $382 million was added through subdivisions, rezoning and new construction.
