A Look at Property Assessments in

Where can I afford to buy a house? Compared to my neighbours, am I paying more property tax? Are there patterns that dramatically affect a house's assessment value?

This interactive map helps you answer these questions. Get started with some stories, or skip them to zoom in and click on a property.

* This visualization runs much slower on IE/Edge, but works great with Chrome or Firefox. Please use one of those browsers.
Browser Does Not Support WebGL
* This visualization needs hardware acceleration that your browser doesn't support. Please make sure your browser supports, and has "WebGL" turned on.
* This visualization will work on your device if it's newer. If it's too slow, please try it on a computer! It's a map visualization, which would look better on a bigger screen anyhow, and 3D buildings will show up there too.

NOTE: Property assessments are not what houses sell for. They can, however, offer clues on where affordable housing can be found. Assessments are based on many factors, not just location. Does a house have a garage? A furnished basement? Air conditioning? How old is it?

Can You Tie In More Data (like MLS)?

It's possible, but the data would have to be available for public use. We can also create private versions that include private/confidential data.

Where there concerns on the data? How did you deal with exemptions?

Calculations and notes about the unique aspects about each city's dataset can be found here.
