I want to say a heartfelt “thank you!” to everyone who turned out for my annual “State of the Ford’s Colony real estate market” event on Thursday at the country club.
We FILLED the room with approximately 70 people who showed up for a lively discussion about sales numbers from 2022, trends in the Ford’s Colony market, the outlook for ’23 and beyond, and other topics. It’s the best attendance we’ve had at one our seminars.
I especially appreciated the thoughtful question-and-answer session that truly demonstrated how engaged Ford’s Colony residents are in their community. It made for a very successful afternoon that I think was made better by our new 4 p.m. start time; we’ve held it earlier in the afternoon in the past, but I think folks appreciated the little later kickoff. If you couldn’t make it this year, I hope to see you next year!
As always, please contact me with any questions and comments about the Ford’s Colony market, and do let me know how I can help if you are considering a move.
Please make plans to join me for my annual State of the Ford’s Colony Market real estate presentation, Thursday, Feb. 16, from 4-6 p.m. at the Ford’s Colony Country Club.
We will discuss trends in the market, the outlook and how current conditions have affected home values and sales. It is always an interesting and informative session!
I hope you can come with your questions and comments for me. Refreshments are complimentary. I ask that you please RSVP to either firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com by Monday, Feb. 13 to let us know you are coming.
I enjoyed working with Barbara and Richard Best to sell their lovely home at 105 Inverness. Thank you, friends, for your faith and trust — I appreciate it very much, and I wish you all the best in your next chapter here in Williamsburg.
Congratulations to Eileen and Brian McCormack on the sale of their Ford’s Colony home at 112 Grenelefe. It was my pleasure to work with you, and I wish you all the best in your move to be closer to family in Maryland. — Deelyn
Ford’s Colony has announced the new entrance to the nature trail is now open off of Westbury Hills.
The old entrance near the pond was subject to flood damage and had to be permanently closed. The crosswalk from the leisure trail on Williamsburg West to Westbury Hills makes the new route, which is well-marked, more accessible.
It also is expected to reduce maintenance costs for the nature trail.
With the slowdown ongoing, Ford’s Colony has taken the opportunity to make numerous improvements and renovations to various facilities in the community.
remodeling of the swim and tennis club’s interior with new lighting, wallpaper and paint, as well as new kitchen appliances.
the very popular pickleball courts are being transformed into six permanent courts with new posts and nets.
maintenance on the tennis courts and pergola has been completed.
the swim and tennis club’s 32-year-old pool is getting coping stones, tiles and an upgraded replacement liner made of fiberglass.
the Community Services Building has been outfitted with new gutters and siding paint.
expansion of the fencing in the maintenance area will start soon to relieve parking issues in front of the Community Services Building.
expansion of fencing for the RV/boat storage area will be scheduled for the summer to increase storage capacity.
The Ford’s Colony HOA board said it will reassess at its May 21 meeting when community facilities can reopen, based on guidance from the state department of health and in compliance with the governor’s executive orders at that time.
