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!

Saturday evening was our Rookie Dinner. We dined on amazing homemade meatballs, chicken parmesan and this amazing Italian sauce. It was delightful. Came home around ten. I waited until Douglas made it home from her job and I closed my eyes. 

Sunday I shampooed the carpets, watched my Raiders win and tried to finish the book I'm ready before our vacation. I'll tell you more about it later. 

About to cook dinner. Getting Joe to fry up the chicken and having a lemon butter sauce.

Oh, and I was in the paper this weekend.
