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. Positioning your home properly among competing inventory is a critical step, and it’s important that your agent devotes the time necessary to study current m…

Go Ape National Live Life Adventure Day

Go Ape invited me and my husband to try the Go Ape Treetop Adventure located in Williamsburg, Virginia in anticipation for Go Ape's National Live Life Adventurously Day that is this Saturday, September 27th.

What is Go Ape's National Live Life Adventurously Day, you ask? Every ticket purchased for this Saturday's event, Go Ape is donating one ticket to Big Brothers Big Sisters.  National Live Life Adventurously is your chance to get out of your comfort zone and make a positive change in your life while helping someone else! Who wouldn't want to do that?

How was it? So Awesome! The weather was perfect and the experience is one Joe and I won't forget. We arrived fifteen minutes before our schedule time slot. We filled out the necessary paperwork required and then looked around listening to sounds of those ahead of use enjoying the park. We heard exciting yays, claps and whoo hoo's. The experience of zipping through the trees brings it out in your.

Once we began our guide, Neil, instructed us on proper techniques and adjusted our safety harnesses. He guided us through the introduction zip line and when we were ready, he released us to our own devices. He didn't forget about us though. He was out there along the way making sure we were comfortable in what we were doing and the more we did, the more we were.

The Treetop Adventure has six sites along the way with tricky crossings that includes bridges and tunnels made from wood, rope, and super strong wire. I skipped the difficult rings course. We got a workout while we were there. Climbing up ladders made from rope, walking across tiny bridges while looking down as you hang from above and then zipping to the bottom in order to get to your next site. Super Fun! It was a blast. We feel extremely lucky to be asked to participate in this amazing adventure and sharing with you ur experience.

Step out of your comfort zone this weekend and share with Big Brothers, Big Sisters!
