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.

Visit: The Museum of National History

It's amazing after the multiple visits to the National Mall in DC, I have never visited The Museum of National History. I have seen the Air and Space Museum many times and paraded around the Capitol, many of the monuments and even done a cartwheel at the Reflecting Pool but never stepped foot in this awesome structure!


The girls and I, along with my mom, trekked the ten blocks from our hotel in the FRIGID temperatures on Saturday and into the warm enveloping arms of The Museum of National History. We waited on my mother-in-law, Susan, and sister-in-law, Lindsey, to arrive via Metro. While waiting we were asked to volunteer for this bird game the museum was testing and because all my girls are three years apart in age, they were just perfect in testing how different age groups would take to it. They were a hit at the game and the developer was quite impressed with my young-ins. 

After Susan and Lindsey arrived and we deposited our coats in the coat room, I would suggest this in the winter, we stepped into a new world of possibilities. The world of natural history is an interesting one with many view points. I am happy with many viewpoints.
