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!

Soothe a Cold with a Hot Tea Toddy

I'm sniffling and sneezing over here. I'm blaming my mother since she was the one with this thing first. Even Joe is sick. Can you believe that? He hasn't been sick since I met him. He's getting weak with age. ;) So what helps? Alcohol of course. 


What to Do:

1. Brew a cup of decaffeinated tea and let steep for a couple of minutes. 

2. Add a bit of honey to taste. This will not only sweeten up your tea but coat your itchy throat to help relieve any soreness or coughing.

3. Slice a lemon and squeeze over the cup to add some yumminess only a lemon can provide.

5. Hold up to your nose and breathe in the hot steam. Sip slowly. Hop in bed and catch up on shows you have missed being well.
