2deborahn asked:
I am seeing huge discrepancies in taxes on homes in Lewiston/Porter. For example, one house at $350K is paying the same tax as a house listed at $979K. Is this an error?

Thanks
Dave Stefik

Has there been any disclosures (or inspections on your part) about flooding or mold? ... more

Hello Davey,
Lewiston is probably the hottest market in Western New York. Located along the Niagara River just North of Niagara Falls, Lewiston is a charming, historic village community. Crime is low, schools are great and the people are fantastic. Welcome to Mayberry RFD.
