City of Buffalo Real Property Information

At a cost of $3,000,000 a revaluation was implemented for the 2020 assessment roll.
The new assessments had a Coefficient of Dispersion of 28%. The 28% Coefficient
of Dispersion compares the new assessed value with the sale price for the 2019-2020 sales.
Half of the parcels (50%) were inaccurately/unequitablly assessed by a MINIMUM of 28%.
NYS guidelines, for high population density municipalities, suggest that the
Coefficient of Dispersion be less than 15%. You are encouraged to review the
sales for your property and file a grievance if you are over assessed.
