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!

Christmas Cookie Night










My friends and I, along with my mom, have a cookie night every year around Christmas. I'm sure many of you reading do the same thing. It's fun isn't it?

The parents were in charge of bringing cookies instead of making them from scratch as we have done in the past and I brought these.  Although we had around one hundred cookies, the kids decorated about five and decided it was time for Ghost's in the Graveyard. We decided to cut down on the numbers next year.

We are entering a new phase of celebrating Christmas and I'm looking at booking a cruise next year. I guess there is really a time in place for everything but looking back as I do with Little Bits of the Past, the sweet, smiling faces of toddlers from the Fisher household are no longer. Now I have sweet, smiling pre-teens and teens.

Hope everyone has a Happy Holiday!
