As of January 2018, the average change for residential properties was 2.17 percent; the median was 1.89 percent.

In 2017, new construction totaled $459.1 million in value. And, 76.7 percent of that new construction was residential versus 23.3 percent for commercial/industrial. 

All properties throughout Virginia Beach will generate approximately $572.5 million in real estate tax revenues — the City’s primary source of income. Each penny of the tax rate (which is $1.0025 per $100 of assessed value) will generate approximately $5.7 million in revenue to support schools and city services.​
