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.

Thought of the Day: Less is More


The older I get the less I want. I mean how many pairs of shoes can one have? Or belts, or purses, or skirts, or jeans, or dresses. It makes life junky if you ask me. You see so many minimalist bloggers that say they don't want much but then parade around taking photos of all their new things.

To me this is pretty hypocritical. This is why you don't see many outfit posts here. I just don't buy a lot of clothes, totes, earrings, bangles, shoes, etc. I have a small closet and I think this has been the best thing in the world for me to deal with. I wear a couple of items and then they wear out. Then I buy something new. 

To me saving has become very important and it makes me richer is more than one sense.

What are you takes on this? Love to hear?
