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. Positioning your home properly among competing inventory is a critical step, and it’s important that your agent devotes the time necessary to study current m…

Thirteen Candles: Sage's Birthday @ Kerr Lake








Last weekend was Sage's 13th Birthday! Wow, it seems like yesterday she was born with her mega, humongous eyes and tiny body! She was the smallest baby we had. My doctor thought she was going to be over eight pounds but she wound up weighing 7'2.

We packed up the car and hooked up the boat trailer. Her friends, Carolyn, MK, and Chloe rode along with Joe and Douglas while I followed behind with my mom in her car along with Ava and our dogs. Everything was going along just grandly until the right boat trailer tire blew out and we wound up on the side of 64, east of Richmond. Luckily everyone was fine and thank goodness for VDOT showing up five minutes later with a flashing caution sign and orange cones to warn those of a mishap ahead.

While Douglas and Joe waited on help, the girls piled into my mom's car and we snuggly rode to our destination. Once we arrived and unpacked, the girls explored and an hour later Joe and Douglas were there. We feasted on Bojangles Chicken (which is amazing by the way), mashed potatoes, mac-n-cheese and biscuits. I ordered the 20 Piece Jumbo Tailgate box. I have to say this is the largest box of chicken I have ever ordered but when you have a crew, you need stuff like this. I'm telling you, if you haven't eaten Bojangles and have the opportunity to, DO! The gravy is perfect and their mac-n-cheese is the best from a fast food joint I've ever had. Sorry, KFC.

The rest of the of the weekend consisted of seeing the largest non-poisonous spider we've ever seen, setting our eyes on two copperheads, enjoying a fire both nights, watching the girls be thrown around on the tube and getting up on the kneeboard, and Sage skiing as she normally does. Water sports are the best.
