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!

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
