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.

Best Tavern in Colonial Williamsburg

As a Williamsburg local, I have heads up on the best tavern you can enjoy while visiting our Historic Triangle. Kings Arm is tasty, historic and usually very warm in the winter.

Jane Vobe opened the Kings Arm in 1772. It became the town's most respectable establishment and she was said to have described it as " where the best people gathered." You will understand why this was as soon as you step foot into the rooms of the Tavern. With the finest furnishings, perfect hosts and service and musical entertainment that brings you back to the magical times of Colonial Williamsburg.




Start:

Either the Champagne Cocktail with sugar cubes and bitters or if you are more of a beer drinker try Mr. Purdie's Home Brew.

Begin Your Meal:

Peanut Soupe: A specialty garnished with peanuts and snippets. You will be satisfied!

Eat:

Either the Norfolk Pottage Pye with tender chicken in a creamy soup with carrots and peas with a flaky crust that melts in your mouth or Mrs. Vobe's Southern Fried Chicken. Suburb fried and served alongside salty ham, boiled tomatoes and skillet fries.
