What's My Home Really Worth--- The Question We All Want Answered!

There are really just two major considerations when you determine the appropriate value for your Williamsburg VA property: market value and appraised value.
This is where many people get confused on value--- So many people will say, “The assessed value is X, so that is what it is worth”. This is so not accurate. Many times a house will sell more than the assessed value as the assessed value is what the city/ county taxes you on. I’ve seen houses sell 30,000 over their assessed value and no one wants to leave money on the table. Do you? I didn’t think so!
So let’s go back to the two values I was talking about earlier!
Market value is the value that a buyer…today…is willing to pay for your home.

Rainy Day in Williamsburg?


Cupcake Wars:
You’ve heard of the popular show on Food Network right? The girls and I love to get together and challenge each other on our cupcake making skills. We each choose a recipe from either a cookbook or an online publication, gather the ingredients and bake away. Of course presentation also counts too! Below is the latest winner!
Take a Dip:
 
Are you a member of James City County Rec Center? If so, why not take a dip in the pool and finish off in the hot tub? The kids can splash in the pool while you enjoy some R & R. If you are not a member, why not look into joining? With many activities going on, you can be busy as much or as little as you want.
Paint on Pottery: 
Located right next door to Quirks of Art in High Street, let Robin help you pick the perfect piece to add to your home. Spend time catching up with your kids and get creative too. Afterwards, why not drop by and say hi to us!
Visit Basset Hall:
Visit the home of John D. Rockefeller, Jr. and his wife Abby Aldrich Rockefeller during the restoration of Colonial Williamsburg. Show the kids some history and learn something for yourself. If you have a Good Neighbor pass, you pay once a year and can visit as many times as you would like. I would highly recommend getting one. It pays for itself.
Take the Ferry to Surry:
Why not? You are stuck inside anyways, why not pop on the ferry and check out the water for awhile. Have some tunes to listen to! Grab a bite to eat in at The Surry House Restaurant and then head home.
Happy Days!
