Seven years without justice in Buziak case Daniel Palmer News staff

In the seven years since Jeff Buziak’s daughter was brutally stabbed to death, not a month passes without an email or phone call to remind the 60-year-old father that those who plotted her murder haven’t yet paid for their crime. Buziak tirelessly pursues those leads – even arranging meetings with anonymous tipsters in the hope of discovering some nugget of new information – and forwards the information to the Saanich Police Department, while his belief in the justice system continues to unravel. “I’ve met gangsters in garages at midnight and phoned guys up and emailed, but what good does that do you,” says Buziak, staring intently through circular, bronze-coloured frames at a busy Saanich café. “They’re not going to say,

‘Yeah sorry, we didn’t mean to do it.’” Lindsay was 24 when she was stabbed to death on Feb. 2, 2008 while showing an unoccupied Gordon Head home to a welldressed couple. Despite a continuing investigation, Saanich Police have not publicly identified a suspect in Lindsay’s murder and no arrests have been made. As the anniversary date approaches each year, it only amplifies the rage felt by her father. “My daughter was executed,” says Buziak, who lives in Calgary and returns to Saanich each February for a 17-kilometre walk in Lindsay’s memory. “I want to kill somebody. But then I think, ‘No. I’ll just be doing the same thing they did.” “They” remain elusive, at least to those observing the complicated case without the full picture. PLEASE SEE: Murder, Page A3

Jeff Buziak displays one of the signs he distributes each year during an annual walk through Saanich in memory of his daughter Lindsay, who was murdered in February 2008. Buziak is struggling to retain his faith in the justice system as the case marks its seventh anniversay on Monday. Despite no arrests, Saanich Police say the investigation remains active.

Victim’s father holds to belief in system Stabbing is ‘up close and personal, often associated with extreme emotional outbusts:’ criminologist Continued from Page A1

Few details have been made public, but police revealed in 2010 that a woman used a pay-as-you-go cell phone to arrange a viewing with Lindsay at the murder scene. The Vancouver-based caller had a thick, Spanish-like accent, Lindsay told her father and friends. She expressed unease about the meeting, and said the woman and her husband wanted to purchase a property within two days. The couple was prepared to spend upwards of $1 million for the right location. About half an hour after meeting the supposed buyers, Lindsay was discovered by her then-boyfriend on the second floor of the De Sousa Place residence, her body butchered by stab wounds. He has since been ruled out as a suspect. Police estimate the murder took place between 5:38 and 5:41 p.m. In 2010, NBC’s Dateline TV program featured Lindsay’s murder and Saanich police revealed a flurry of information about the brutal killing. Dateline’s analysts believed Buziak was an innocent party, and that her murder was a targeted hit arranged by someone close to her. Insp. Rob McColl, one of two lead investigators interviewed by Dateline, told Saanich News in 2011 that police agreed with that conclusion. At the time, police had narrowed down the investigation to “three or four” working theories and had interviewed an estimated 1,400 people.

Knowledge is powerless Buziak believes he knows the people involved in his daughter’s murder. He shares his suspicions – as well as tips he still regularly receives – with Sgt. Chris Horsley, lead investigator on the file. “I give them [the police] everything, they give nothing back,” Buziak says. He’s learned to live with the one-way discussion, but said it often feels like insanity. “The police aren’t accountable to anyone but themselves. The mayor really can’t get involved with the police. You go to the police chief, who says, ‘We’re working on it.’ Well, who do you go to beyond that?” Buziak tried unsuccessfully to file a complaint with the Office of the Police Complaint Commissioner of B.C. about the lack of progress on the file. He also approached

dark or brown hair. He was wearing a light- to mediumbrown jacket. The woman is estimated to be between 35- and 40-years-old with shorter blond hair. She was wearing a designer dress with a distinctive red, white and black pattern.

Witnesses described the couple who met Lindsay Buziak on Feb. 2, 2008 as Caucasian and welldressed. The man is described as having a medium build, approximately six-feet tall, with

the B.C. Attorney General to request that the Vancouver Island Integrated Major Crime Unit examine Lindsay’s case. Saanich police joined the integrated unit in 2013. “The province won’t get involved in an active case for political reasons,” Buziak says. The unit typically doesn’t investigate crimes “of an historical nature,” said Sgt. Steve Eassie. Buziak says Saanich police told him in 2010 that his life was in danger, but he’s received mostly reassurances about the progress of the investigation since that time.

Where are the arrests? Prof. Rob Gordon, a criminologist at Simon Fraser University, said upwards of 96 per cent of murder cases are solved within 48 hours, usually because the victim and offender are known to one another. Seven years is an enormously long period of time,” Gordon said. “There’s been a lot of speculation about connections with people who may have been involved in the illegal drug trade, or whether this was a crime of passion of some kind. … But I suspect the police probably have a fair bit of information they’ve not made public.” Gordon said murder investigations are solved in one of three ways: strong forensic evidence like DNA, footprints or finger-

prints; direct or corroborated witness testimony that places the killer at the scene; or a confession from a suspect. “The question has to be: why would anybody want to draw a real estate agent to this particular place and then kill her in a very personal way? Stabbing is up close and personal, often associated with extreme emotional outbursts, rage,” Gordon said. “The Buziak case is a real tragedy. The father is an aggressive advocate of his daughter and obviLindsay Buziak. ously wants some answers,” he said. Saanich Police, who initially assigned 20 officers to Lindsay’s murder, refused an interview request but in a statement said the anniversary provides an opportunity to renew public awareness and garner fresh tips. “There is still a dedicated team of investigators that are working on this file. … To share anything further could affect the integrity of the investigation,” said Sgt. Steve Eassie. Eassie wouldn’t confirm the number of officers still assigned to the file, but said police empathize with the Buziak family and

share in the desire for a successful arrest. “I am aware that Mr. Buziak is in frequent contact with the investigators from this file, and that he has been made fully aware of the reasons why we cannot share specific details of the investigation,” Eassie said. Other police agencies have been involved in the investigation at various times, he said.

A lonely struggle for truth Buziak appreciates the direct line he maintains with investigators, but said it’s frustrating not to receive new information or know how many officers are still involved. “All I hear is, ‘A nice policeman is working on it,’” he says. “I think the police don’t particularly like me around or wish I would just go away.” Buziak is conflicted, and while he trusts in the justice system, he debates its effectiveness in deterring and punishing those responsible for murder. He stays strong for his children, but admits the intense pressure often leads to an emotional crash. “That’s what I’m testing right now: Is this justice system real or isn’t it? ... The only people who can pressure police are a large number of people showing up and demanding answers or the press.” Rewards ranging from $100,000 to $500,000 have been offered over the course of the investigation, all to no avail. Now, with the support of a dedicated network of volunteers, Buziak spends much of his free time following up on leads in Lindsay’s murder that still arrive by email, phone or through word of mouth. “This isn’t about me. I’m doing this for your daughter, your girlfriend, your family,” he says. “There’s a young woman who got called up to do her job and when she was working, somebody slaughtered her. … The struggle is how I deal with this. Most of my waking hours are spent on pursuing the truth, and the balance is survival.” editor@saanichnews.com

OUR VIEW

Spy measures are worrying The federal Conservatives are set to introduce sweeping new changes today to anti-terrorism laws that govern the reachww of Canada’s spy agencies: the Communications Security Establishment Canada (CSEC) and the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS). Little has been known about the reach and activitives of CSEC in particular, but documents released this week through CBC and U.S. website The Intercept show CSEC is making a mark in the international intelligence community with its own programs. Wednesday’s news focused on a program created by CSEC that tracks uploads and downloads at more than 100 file-sharing sites online. If a particular file piques CSEC’s interest, they can trace the IP address – a unique identifier connected to all modems – of anyone interacting with the file and then use U.S. and U.K. spy agency software to dig out more personal information. It’s a rare event for a Canadian agency to be be directly exposed in warrantless data collection on a mass scale, but suspicion about this sort of activity has been rampant since whistleblower Edward Snowden began leaking documents through various media in 2013. Now, on the eve of what Prime Minister Stephen Harper calls “much-needed” changes to Canadian anti-terrorism laws, it’s critical that Canadians wake up from their slumber over online monitoring and ensure elected officials value privacy over simpler prosecution. A U.S. senate report triggered by Snowden’s revelations and released in late 2014 illustrated the uselessness of mass government spying in preventing terrorist attacks. But perhaps the most unsettling development of Canada’s spying evolution is a lack of parliamentary oversight. Only cabinet and an independent body appointed by the government of the day gets a peek into CSIS and CSEC’s latest digital toys. That needs to change. A parliamentary committee with members from all political parties needs oversight authority. The alternative is the ready-made potential for a nanny state. What do you think?

Celiac diet hardly hippy science Re: Hippy science is easy and wrong (B.C. Views, Jan. 21) Before Tom Fletcher entirely dismisses the gluten-free diet by referring to gluten as “the new evil,” I would like to remind him and readers that approximately one per cent of the population actually has celiac disease. This is an autoimmune disease whereby the absorptive tissues of the intestine are destroyed by the body’s reaction to gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley. The only path to restored health and prevention of other related complications such as osteoporosis, anemia, and some nasty cancers of the gut is a strict, glutenfree diet for life. Another estimated five to six per cent of the population suffers from non-celiac gluten sensitivity. Research on this condition is in the early stages but medical researchers confirm that it is “real” and symptoms are similar to those of celiac disease.

For some of us, eating glutenfree restores our health and is literally life-saving. Anne Wraggett, president Canadian Celiac Association

LRT costs reasonable, so let’s talk about it There’s very little discussion of LRT in Greater Victoria these days. The biggest problem is sticker shock of the $950 million price tag thrown out. (We have to pay for sewage treatment too, right?) Cost estimates for LRT in both Victoria and Surrey have hundreds of millions of dollars of road projects thrown in.

It’s interesting to compare the differences in per-kilometre estimates of different rail transit lines, with and without the flab: • Skytrain Evergreen Line … $127 million/km • Surrey LRT … $63 million to 81.5 million/km • Victoria LRT … $62 million/ km • Waterloo, Ont. LRT … $34.25 million/km Waterloo costs are for everything, including trams, but with a fairly modest $61 million in road and other non-rail improvements factored out. Louis Guilbault Victoria

News staff

A fire at the Cordova Bay clubhouse is prompting the Saanich Fusion Football Club and police to ask the public to keep an eye out for vandals. At about 6 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 22, a few parents whose children were training on a nearby soccer field saw flames shooting up to a metre high under a covered area of the clubhouse. The quick thinking group rushed to extinguish the blaze, which was consuming a pile of lost-and-found clothing. It’s yet another incident of “generic vandalism” on a Saanich Fusion site, said club president Barrie Keefe. “It’s just lucky the parents of a Fusion youth team were there and saw it,” Keefe said. We’re hoping neighbours can be vigilant and report anything suspicious they see.” Saanich Police responded shortly after and searched around but could not locate anyone definitively linked to

Popham gets tough on farming Saanich South MLA Lana Popham is spearheading a new opposition standing committee on Agriculture and Food that she hopes will magnify what she believes are missed opportunities in agriculture across B.C. Popham has worked for the last six years on the agriculture portfolio, hoping to get the B.C. Liberals to bring back the Select Standing Committee on Agriculture, which hasn’t met since 2001. A new standing committee could help reverse the age gap in B.C.’s agriculture industry by developing strong agricultural policies that incent young people into agriculture, and allow them to make a good living, she said. “Retaining young farmers is critical to having a strong agricultural future,” Popham said. “Although we would prefer a committee with legislative support and both sides of the legislature participating, we believe we can accomplish important work.” A schedule of committee meetings, a public website and information on how the public can participate will be released over the next month. editor@saanichnews. com

on an outside table. A person of interest is described as a white male in their 20s, 6 feet to 6’1, weighing about 180 to 190 lbs and wearing a tan jacket and pants. “No one saw him starting a fire but someone saw him put something on it,” Eassie said. Police are recommending the club store any lost and found items inside and install motion detector lights.

The Saanich Fusion organization has been the target of petty vandalism over the past 13 months, with several incidents being reported at their Tyndall Drive clubhouse. Vandals littered the field with equipment when a door to the Gordon Head location was left open last year. In another incident, the high quality all-weather pitch was sliced open and nets were cut from the goal posts, costing hundreds of dollars. “Again this week, we had a small tree bent over and damaged on the Tyndall grounds, which has happened before,” Keefe said. “It’s a substantial enough tree that it must have taken two to three people. It’s generic vandalism, and it’s a persistent problem we’re having that we just want to get the word out there and let people know.” The Cordova Bay clubhouse is located at 5383 Lochside Dr. Anyone with information is asked to call the Saanich police at 250-475-4321. reporter@saanichnews.com

I first saw this handsome style, Hyundai Intrado, which is a concept crossover designed which gives the impression that the vehicle is moving to foreshadow a change design direction for the Korean even when stationary, at the Mazda6 launch in Paris manufacturer. It looks a little bit like an oversized Juke, a few years ago.

The concept features a hydrogen fuel-cell powertrain linked to a 36 kWh lithium-ion battery pack that Hyundai boasts will provide a range of 600 kilometres. By the way, British Columbians will soon be able to lease a Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell, with a similar powertrain and a reported range of 425 kms. Subaru VIZIV2 The Subaru concept crossover utility hybrid shown is a four-door version of a previously revealed two-door. Get this: Subaru says its “athletic, rugged shape of the sides seem designed in the image of a muscular NHL defenceman, and the fenders flare in a sturdy style.” Ahem. Looks like it came out of the Nissan/Infiniti design studios, and that’s not a criticism. Toyota FT1 Toyota was all about the roar of the engines in Montreal, which certainly pleased the gathered Quebec auto journos, who to a man/woman always appear to be race crazy to me (Given the market reality in Quebec, that doesn’t appear to be reflected in car buyer choices). Nevertheless, most would surely enjoy the sleek lines of the Toyota FT-1, designed to be at home on the track and a heck of a ticket magnet on the highway. Up next is the Toronto Show, which takes the name The Canadian International Auto Show. Bite your lip, Morgan. The Calgary show follows, then the new-look, re-imagined Vancouver International Auto Show debuts March 24-29.

It’s the Cadillac of station wagons By Bob McHugh

The CTS Sport Wagon (2010 – 2013) was the first in-house full production wagon (based on a sedan) made by Cadillac. The CTS has clean, crisp, edgy styling that is distinctively modern Cadillac. The sedan edition of the highly successful rear-drive CTS was introduced for the 2003 model year and captured numerous awards. Its high-powered V variant, which followed in 2004, embarrassed Euro competitors of the day by smashing the production car lap speed record at the revered Nurburgring, in Germany. These days, wagons are less popular here than in Europe, so the available local used car market pool, for this edition of the CTS, is not a very deep one. North Americans tend to buy utility type vehicles instead of a wagon. A wagon is typically closer to a sedan in terms of driving dynamics, yet has more than double the cargo capability. A CTS Sport Wagon is a little taller and heavier than the sedan, it offers 736 litres of storage space with the rear seats up, and 1,642 litres with them folded. There’s also a clever sub-floor cargo management system and the rear door is power-operated. The base engine is a 3.0-litre (255 horsepower) V6 that’s mated to six-speed automatic transmission. The other engine is a 24-valve, 3.6 litre, direct injection (304 horsepower) V6, that provides more

torque at lower engine speeds, yet fuel economy is about the same. Using the newly revised rating method, consumption should be about 12.8/8.6 L/100 km (city/highway). The CTS can also come with an all-wheel drive system that normally splits torque 30/70 front-to-rear, to maintain its sporty (rear-drive) driving dynamic. It’s capable of delivering up to100 per cent of torque to either axle if needed, but there is a small increase fuel consumption. An interesting adaptive forward lighting system was included in an option package that came with Xenon headlights. This system automatically adjusts headlight direction for improved visibility at night. It can also turn the headlights up to 15 degrees inboard and 5 degrees outboard, providing better vision while cornering. The big news for 2011 model year was the addition of a, limited edition, high-performance CTS-V Sport Wagon model. Like the V sedan it’s powered by a 556-horsepower supercharged V8 engine and came with 6-speed manual transmission or optional 6-speed automatic. You’ll likely pay a $20,000 premium (maybe more) to acquire a (hard to find) used CTS-V Wagon. The 2012 edition of the CTS Sport Wagon came with a new 3.6-litre V6 engine that is more powerful (318-horsepower) yet lighter than the 3.6-litre engine it

replaced. It also came with a new grille, standard Bluetooth and a new option package that made it look like a V Wagon. No significant changes followed for 2013 and it was the last production year of this generation of the CTS. Although it can be harder to find in the used car market, Sport Wagon adds a handy utility bonus, without destroying the scintillating driving experience that is Cadillac CTS. Price Check: 2010 - 2013 Cadillac CTS (January 2015) Year Edition Expect to Pay Today 2010 Sport Wagon $17,000 to $21,000 2011 Sport Wagon $21,000 to $25,000 2012 Sport Wagon $25,000 to $29,000 2013 Sport Wagon $30,000 to $35,000 Prices vary depending on a used vehicle’s condition, mileage, usage and history. A complete mechanical check should always be performed by a reliable auto technician prior to purchase.

Safety Recalls: 2010 to 2013 Cadillac CTS: 2003 to 2014: Some drivers may bump the ignition key with their knee and unintentionally move the key from out of the "run" position. A subsequent loss of engine power would unexpectedly increase steering and brake pedal effort, and airbags may not deploy in

a collision. Dealers will remove the key blade from the original flip key/transmitter assemblies provided with the vehicle, and provide two new keys and two key rings for every original key. 2009/2010 - A wax coating applied to rear suspension toe link jam nuts may allow them to loosen. This causes a metallic clanking noise from the rear of the vehicle and the toe link could eventually separate. Dealers will clean, install two new jam nuts and, if required, the rear suspension toe link will be replaced. 2011: A loss of grease from the centre constant velocity (CV) joint, on allwheel-drive editions, can result in

vibrations of the propeller shaft. These vibrations may be transferred to a rollover sensor, located on the floor above it, and cause an unwarranted deployment of the side curtain airbags. Dealers will replace the rear propeller shaft assembly. 2012 - The brake booster pushrod retention nut may not have received adequate tightening torque during vehicle assembly and could separate from the brake pedal assembly. Dealers will inspect the pushrod retention nut and, if necessary, torque the nut to specification.

7x 7 FULL-TIME ALL-WHEEL DRIVE. BECAUSE YOU NEVER WANT OCCASIONAL TRACTION.

YOUR HEALTH

President’s own story: 15 years ago I started to have arthritis, prostate, kidney, snoring and sleep apnea problems, which were all helped quickly with natural health products. I made it my life’s purpose to help others. Nick A. Jerch

ARTHRITIS

Pain free in 2 weeks. This is what happened to me personally. I tried drugs, acupuncture, magnets and many other methods. Finally after taking a specially processed shark cartilage I was pain free in 2 weeks. It gave me the idea that I could help thousands of the 5 million men and women suffering daily in Canada with the worst pain on earth to have less pain or no pain at all. Nick A. Jerch, President of Bell Lifestyle. <For 40 years I had injections and drugs and finally Bell Shark Cartilage #1 spared me the endless torture I suffered day and night with 3 bottles costing less than $100. Pat Laughlin, Coldwater, ON. <Cancelled knee replacement. 1 was in pain and limping. Have no more pain now. Can square dance for hours. Anton Melnychuk, Porcupine Plain, SK. <At first I was skeptical. I gradually noticed an improvement. Then I took another brand. I was surprised having so much pain again. Eventually I realized that I needed to re-order Bell. Found relief again. Marie Ciraulo, 72, Oakland, CA. <Many people on our website write: “Can walk #1 NPN 80042283 again for hours”;”Can climb stairs without hanging on to railing”;”First time in 15 years can sleep at night” Rheumatoid arthritis in joints down 90%, same for my sister…Also guaranteed for sciatica. Hundreds of testimonials all with full names and towns. Shark bones/cartilage was a previously thrown away by-product of the food industry. No sharks are caught for their cartilage. Don’t let any activist confuse you.

Albert E. Blain, 74, Schumacher, ON æEven after TURP prostate surgery and microwave therapy had to get up many times. Now down to 1-2 times. Tea is 100% better than drugs. Robert G. Stocker, Eustasis, FL æAfter 1st year drinking tea my PSA went down to 4.5; after 2nd year to 2.9; after 3rd year to 2.3. I highly recommend the tea. A real life saver. Thomas M. Thurston, #4a NPN 80051642 Forsyth, GA. Women Ask for #4b Bladder Control Tea for Women.

Weaver seeks Green leadership

Andrew Weaver says he’s ready to lead the B.C. Green Party into the next election. The first-term Oak Bay-Gordon Head MLA told reporters at the legislature this week he made up his mind over the Christmas holidays to carry on with his political career, after two years of keeping his options open. Weaver said he will stand for the leadership of the party as it tries to consolidate its Vancouver Island

Saanich council is inviting the public to participate and speak about increasing public participation on Monday night. This week, council reviewed a Jan. 23 report from staff that studied 31 B.C. municipalities and charted the varying opportunities for public participation at each council. Staff discovered that Saanich and Oak Bay are the only municipalities without an opportunity to make formal public presentations at council, although Saanich does allow public comment on agenda items during committee of the whole meetings and and at committees. Discussion of the report was bumped to next Monday’s committee of the whole meeting to allow for more feedback, said Coun. Colin Plant, who put forward the motion to study how other municipalities allow for public input. “There was a belief that because the report had only become available as of Friday, it was too fast of a turnaround to allow for full input and feedback from the public,” Plant said. “I believe that council will be open to allowing for more input from the public input at council meetings. The challenge will be for council to find a balance in time.” Council’s absence of public input opportunity is glaring when compared to the “environmental scan” of other municipalities. Plant wants to see the current rules, which do not allow for public input at council meetings nor for general comments, to expand to include speaking to items outside a public hearing, as well as a time for general comments or questions, in addition to formal presentations and delegations. “I’m hoping Council will make provisions for all three,” Plant said. Generally, delegations can speak on anything once approved through a written request, while the entirety of the

delegation period is limited to either one hour, or to presentations by a maximum of three to four parties per council session. As well, presentations are usually allotted a maximum time range of five to 15 minutes. Residents are invited to speak up to five minutes at Monday’s discussion or submit a written correspondence to clerksec@saanich.ca by 4 p.m. Monday to be included. Council is held at Saanich Municipal Hall at 7:30 p.m.

A group of local medical students are hoping to raise enough cash to supply much-needed supplies for a clinic in Honduras. The University of Victoria’s Global Medical Brigades will embark on its annual trip to Honduras in February, where they provide medical relief to rural communities who have no access to healthcare. The team alternates between Honduras and Panama each year, said brigade member Natasha Olive. “We’re looking to raise between $800 to $1,000 through a charity concert with the Don Leppard Big Band on Feb. 2 at Hermann’s Jazz Club. It’s open to absolutely everyone,” Olive said. Purchase $10 tickets at the door and browse a silent auction with items like admission to Butchart Gardens with tea for two, a photography studio session and Victoria Symphony tickets. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m. editor@saanichnews.com

B.C. ASSESSMENT SAYS | Market value for assessment is the most probable price of a property

Assessment vs. market value Valerie Edwards Black Press contributor

There is no other concept within real estate that is more misunderstood than tax assessed value as it relates to market value. Let’s start with definitions. Market value is the value buyers place on a property. It’s what buyers are willing and able to pay for a specific property at a specific time. Tax assessment is the value a municipality places on a home once a year, to determine its annual property taxes. From the above definitions you can see at once the vast difference between the two. First of all, the people who determine market value as opposed to assessed value are very different. Buyers determine market value. Government employees determine tax assessed value. Secondly, the purpose for which these values are determined are plainly different. Government agents working for the tax authority are objective, or should be, in their value determination. They use data such as lot size, house size and very generalized “sold” data from the MLS system. Considering that only a small percentage of homes sell every year, this data is quite limited when used to determine the assessed values of each and every home in a jurisdiction. Timing is also an important aspect to consider. The tax authority’s data is collected and adjusted once a year, whereas the market that is buyerdriven can change, literally, in two weeks. Unlike buyers, government agents rarely enter properties to see if there has been any updating. There can be two properties side by side that seem similar on paper:

Never rely on the tax assessed value when determining the value of a property for the purposes of selling or buying, says realtor Valerie Edwards. same sized lot, same sized house and built in the same year. But if one has had a recent $40,000 kitchen and bathroom renovation and the other one is still in its original 1950’s glory, the tax assessment will not reflect this difference, but a buyer’s estimation of value will certainly be affected. Buyers and their respective real estate representatives compare properties that not only have recently sold, but are currently on the market in order to determine what value a particular property holds for them. That value can be general in nature, but at the same

time unique to each buyer and property. In more than 20 years of experience, I have found that, other than in the most general sense, there is no consistent or reliable relationship between tax assessed value and market value. When in the process of determining the value of a property for the purposes of selling or buying, never rely on the tax assessed value. Instead use the services of a realtor who not only will have information on recently sold properties similar to yours,

they will have actually seen the condition of the property in question. They will also know the current state of the market, whether it’s going up, down or is static. And because of the unique value that buyers can sometimes place on a home beyond the data, a skilled agent can sometimes know that a certain property is likely to sell for more or for less based on experience and their intuitive powers. ••• Valerie Edwards is a licensed realtor with Pemberton Holmes Realty.
