Don't forget the tax basis of a property can be carried from a property owned but recently sold, to a new purchase. Properties may have a low assessed value even though they were recently sold. 325 Channing Ave appears to have been sold in the last few years for significantly more than $201,637

In addtition to proposition 13, there is:
Proposition 8 - allows reassessment in a declining market
Proposition 60 - homeowners over 55 transfer assessed value to a replacement home
Proposition 90 - extended Proposition 60 across counties
Proposition 110 - extended benefits to disabled homeowners of any age
Proposition 218 - required voter approval of local government assessments

Although it doesn't affect tax assessment, only income liability, 1031 exchanges can't be ignored when considering taxes.

Jennifer,
I agree with Tap, but if you want the contact info I suggest you go to Sublet.com and put in the property ID # given in the begining of the description. This should give you who to contact.

I hope that helped,
At your service,
