Sold for $12,000 in 2009. Owned by Sisters of Charity Hospital which is probably tax exempt so they may not care about getting the assessment lowered.

I don't know what source your using for information but, 91 Kensington, Buffalo, NY 14214 was sold for $12,000, closed on 3/19/09 and is currently assessed at $30, 200. When a property is purchased for less that what it is assessed for, it is the new buyers responsibility to challenge the assessment to get it lowered unless they wat to pay more taxes than they should. However, it is currently owned by Sister's of Charity Hospital and they probably don't care about the assessment if they are tax exempt.
