The host galaxy brightness from Vizier would be the integrated brightness over the whole galaxy rather than just the core. Perhaps this explains why your measured core brightness is not higher than the Vizier magnitude ? (At a rough estimate, I would expect the SN to have increased the brightness by ~0.5 mag)

Cheers
