It's Showtime! What To Do and What Not To Do

The sign is up and you are ready to show your home off! In any market, a hot one or not, you need to have your house prepared to show as soon as you are live! What should you do and not do for a showing?

Upgrades and Repairs:

If your home has undergone some major changes since you purchased your home, you may want to list these out. Many people will never even look at these but if they are interested they will. Upgrading your brass knobs on your kitchen is not a big deal to the buyer,but a new furnace, hot water heater or brand new roof is. Any transferable warranty should also be noted.

The list doesn't have to be long as I've stated, most people will not even notice it unless they do and if they do, they are not going to read a long list. A simple record is fine. If a professional was called in to do work, show receipts.

Neighborhood Info:

Not everyone looking at your home is familiar with the area. Show off your neighborhood with any information you have such as if there is …

Best Beach: Williamsburg



When we first moved here, we always drove the twenty minutes to Yorktown Beach but after awhile the hassle and the jellyfish stings made us want to find somewhere new to enjoy the water and sun. Much closer to home and located on the James River next to the Jamestown Ferry you will find just the right beach! Jamestown Beach Park is the best beach to sun in Williamsburg don't let anyone tell you otherwise. As a local who knows, do not beach at College Creek. Too many bad things have happened at that beach when swimmers enter the water to talk about. 

For safe, family fun SEE Jamestown Beach Park.

Turn right before you pop on the ferry and find a parking spot. Newly renovated with a wider beach and tall trees, you must walk through in order to make it to the water's edge. If you are not into sun hide out in the shade if you like. If you want to tan, continue on and walk to the edge. 

Bring a grill to cook out or enjoy one provided for you! Watch the ferry go back and forth between Jamestown and Surry. (I have the perfect spot to stay to share with you in Surry)Listen for the cannon to sound from Jamestown Settlement

  2. Would you believe I worked on Jamestown Island for 7 years and never went to that beach? Thanks for the great review. Maybe I'll try it now!
