MY BLOG...WILLIAMSBURG REAL ESTATE!

By
Real Estate Agent with LONG & FOSTER

Well, let me first start with how wonderful WILLIAMSBURG, VIRGINIA is!  I certainly can't say enough good things about this historical city. 

First and foremost, I've got to talk about WILLIAMSBURG REAL ESTATE!  It is really picking up.  Folks are selling and folks are buying.  According to CNN, Money.com, the average price of homes in Williamsburg, VA is around $315,000.  I must add that CNN, Money.com also voted Williamsburg VA in the top 100 of Best Places To Live in 2007!  There are golf communities, Ford's Colony (www.fordscolony.com) and Kingsmill (www.kingsmill.com).  Great greens if you're into golf!  Oh, I must say that in 2006, CNN Money.com voted Williamsburg, VA one of the best places to retire!

There is a place called New Town (www.newtownwilliamsburg.com) -which is like the heartbeat of Williamsburg Real Estate.  It's a mini city, a total of 365 acres.  There are great restaurants, great shops and even a movie theater.  They have luxury townhomes as well as luxury apartment rentals.  It is meant so that you can get anywhere you need to go without driving.  It's a great atmosphere.

There are also great buys for First Time Home Buyers.  There is a lot of new construction going up in Williamsburg.  The Village at Quaterpath (www.villageatquarterpath.com) is a neighborhood still in construction that will have single family and townhomes.   There's also Williamsburg Villiage which is on Route 60, a few mile from The Williamsburg Pottery...which brings me to shopping!

There are absoluetly great places to shop.  There's the Williamsburg Prime Outlet (www.primeoutlets.com) The Williamsburg Pottery, and the Williamsburg Winery.  And for your cup of tea, we have the Williamsburg Antique Mall.  It doesn't end there.  If you want fast paced action, you can go to Go Karts Plus, Williamsburg Busch Gardens, or play a little mini golf at Williamsburg Golf America.

There are a ton of things to do here.  If you love the water, then it's Water Country USA for you!  That place was number 4 on the travel channel's countdown of best water parks.  If it's history you love, well, take a trip back in time in Colonial Williamsburg.  They do  some great re-enactments there.  There is also President's Park where they have 18' to 20' tall statues of all 43 presidents.  It's pretty cool; you can see a few of them from Interstate 64. 

I have got to mention that Williamsburg, VA is home to the College of William & Mary.  It just keeps on going here in Williamsburg, VA.  If you haven't been here, shame on you!  Whether you're looking for a great place to raise a family or a great place to retire, Williamsburg, VA IS IT!
