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. The most effective way to determine market value is to look through the prospective buyer’s eyes---they are the ones you need to impress.

Stay: Hale Springs Inn



 Want to stay somewhere Presidents of the USA have stayed? Well that is just what we did on our last trip to Rogersville, Tennessee. Usually we stay with family or at the Comfort Suites but this time we wanted to try out a new scene. The Hale Springs Inn is a wonderful addition to the town.

Situated on Main Street,  the Hale Springs Inn has undergone many renovations and owned by many different people. After the Inn closed in the 80's it was bought and restored to its 1820-1830's appearance. The Rogersville Heritage Association now runs the Inn. In fact much of the furniture that resides in the Inn is on loan from many of the families that reside in the town. 

What I find really awesome though, because the town wanted the inn to survive they opened a bar. Now you may think what's the deal with opening a bar in a hotel? Well, before this bar, there was not a bar anywhere in Rogersville and the whole county was dry. You had to drive quite aways to get a drink in any resturaunt and you better make sure you had brought wine when you came to visit. So now, in 2014 you can have a drink where presidents stayed a long, long time ago. 

What We Loved: The essence of the hotel, the bed was super comfortable, the rooms are huge, the cleaning staff was super nice, the decorations for Christmas were superb, we chose a room in the back of the hotel, the location.

We We Didn't Love: The breakfast was less than superb, my eggs were cold and the server was not great and one lady who worked the front desk acted like she didn't like us being there.
