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.

Lighthouse Trippin









What a great weekend. The girls and I headed out after Sage completed her tryouts for the cheer squad at Berkeley. She MADE it!!

They have also repainted it and added a nice walkway out over the marsh areas where you can see Blue Crab, Herons and fish swim in their habitat. Watch out for the snakes though! 

Here are a couple of shots from this magnificent Lighthouse.
