Daughter and OH had done a lot of major renos during their first year in the house (2004/5). It looked as though very little had been done inside, except for re-painting a couple of rooms, although there were quite big changes to the front and back gardens.

Nothing to be the reason for that huge increase in asking price. I doubt it would have been anywhere near that level a year ago.
take a look at viewpoint.ca, that shows sold prices

Is this not a normal thing in other provinces? The government site for NB that shows assessed values also shows what places were sold for, sometimes with the last three sales.

My old duplex went for $69k in 2016. Four years later (new siding all around but nothing else different from internal photos, assessed value largely unchanged at time of sale) $172k.

NS appear to only give values, not the sold price https://www.pvsc.ca/en/home/findanas...byaddress.aspx
