Tough Temple Cross Fit Has Moved – Is Senior Home a Step Closer?

The Tough Temple Cross fit has moved locations and has a sign out front for Fedex/UPS deliveries. Curious to know whether the assisting living facility slated for that space is now a step closer to breaking ground. Of course the dance studio is still there but evidence does suggest we are inching closer to a redevelopment project for Rugby Avenue.  It seems that Bethesda Urban Living for seniors is on the horizon!

Real Estate as You Get Older

Friends,

The demographic data is clear – the United States is aging and Bethesda’s population is certainly tracking that national trend.  As we, as a society, look to address the changing needs of an aging populace, real estate will play a key component in our thinking and decision making.

As a real estate professional I am having conversations about aging and real estate constantly with clients.

For some the challenges surround selling a home that is too large or unwieldy to live in and maintain while for others it is trying to work out whether there next home is their final home or a bridge to assisted living. These are important discussions and each has a fair share of built in questions to consider.

In the coming weeks I will be raising  some of these questions and making a few suggestions that might be useful. I really encourage you to email me questions/ or topics you want me to address at raj@rajabout.com – we can’t cover all the details on every topic in a blog format but hopefully this will be a good start. I am also hoping we can bring in the view points of non-real estate experts who can contribute to this discussion.

Cheers!
