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.

It's a beautiful place filled with succulents, roses, and pretty awesome folks.

This is what Sage wants to see for her 16th birthday.

Hermosa Beach from the Pier. 

Hope you have a great weekend. Heading to the lake for the first time. Getting ready to take my PSI for the real estate exam on Tuesday. Scared.
