Being an empty nester means the next stage of your life is about to begin. Whether the kids are off at school, starting families of their own, or moving across the country to follow their dreams, it’s time to shift your focus back to how you want to spend your time – and where. Downsizing your home can be the first step in this new stage, giving you the chance to start fresh in more ways than one. With so many factors to consider from financial to emotional, it can be difficult to know where to start when making the decision. While the ‘right’ time can be hard to define, we can help you find the right time for you.
With the first move-ins for the condominiums at Robinson Landing currently planned for Summer 2020, RTS Condo Associates LLC wanted to take this opportunity to provide an update on the exciting progress occurring on-site and share brand new renderings of the interiors.

Roz Winegrad was fifth in line last November to purchase a townhome by EYA at Cabin John Village, even though the Potomac, Maryland, development was still just a fenced-in parking lot. The single mom, whose son leaves for college next fall, had been looking at several options to downsize from her large contemporary house in Bethesda. “I was looking for a way to not feel so isolated, and to be part of a community,” she says of the unit she chose that faces Cabin John Regional Park. At the same time, Winegrad will be able to take just a few short steps to the shops and restaurants of the newly updated Cabin John Village. “I think it’s going to be a premier shopping and dining destination without the craziness of downtown Bethesda or Pike & Rose,” she says. “I still want serenity, and I still want a home in an area where there aren’t millions of people every day.”
When it comes to living in a city, proximity is everything. Being close to family and friends, your favorite activities, and planning your commute to work are all equally important factors to consider when choosing a neighborhood. It can be challenging to find a location that balances not only your wants and needs, but the vibrancy of downtown with a quieter, close-knit community you can escape to at the end of the day.
