Market Model Report Information

Residential properties in Ontario are primarily valued using the Sales Comparison approach to value.  The Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) carries out this approach using a statistical process called Multiple Regression Analysis.  MPAC has identified over one hundred unique market areas and created regression equations for each of these markets for the purpose of valuing residential property.  For general information regarding this method and how it is used by MPAC, click Market Model Overview.

Additional information about the multiple regression model used to value your property in the current base year is available through a Market Model Report.

A Market Model Report includes the following:

  • A general description of the sales comparison approach, including model specification and model calibration;
  • sample regression equation and sample value calculation (using a hypothetical equation for both);
  • A discussion of ratio studies, standards, and how results are measured.
  • An overview of the finetuning process;
  • A listing of all the market models that were built for the specific area.
  • Market model boundaries for the area;
  • A summary of the sales database for the market model requested.
  • A ratio study for the market area; and
  • A list of variables, coefficients, and standard error statistics in the model.

Market Model Reports for other market areas or the previous assessment base year can be purchased for $250.00 plus applicable taxes each.
