With peak moving season set to begin in a few short weeks, now is the perfect time to put your plans into motion. Did you know that nearly 70 percent of all relocations throughout the United States occur between Memorial Day and Labor Day? If you’re still on the fence about moving, our team can help with planning and execution. We’ve worked with countless owner residents to rightsize, relocate, and become part of the Maplewood community. Follow these summertime steps to save time, money, and trouble, so you can enjoy premier retirement living in the heart of Bethesda that much sooner. 

Step 1: Ease the Transition with Welcome & Wellness 

Have you been thinking about moving to a retirement community in the DC area? Maybe you’ve gone so far as to research and visit several local options, but you want to know more about what the lifestyle is really like before you make your decision. At Maplewood Park Place, we’re giving you the opportunity to do so with our transition package.  

Take advantage of the many on-site amenities before you move, including our pool, gym, and wellness program. You can get a head start on holistic health with two personal training sessions, along with access to restorative services. Share a meal and make new memories with future neighbors at any of our incredible dining venues. As you sample Chef’s creations, you can learn more about what brought your peers to Maplewood and how resident ownership empowers them in retirement.  

After you’ve had a chance to experience the lifestyle that has earned us the distinction of “Best  Senior Living Community” in Bethesda for 13 consecutive years, we can do more to ease the transition from your current home. If the expense and hassle of moving is holding you back, talk to our team about the monthly fee credit that comes with this package on select homes. Be sure to learn more about the additional assistance we’re offering for renovations and rightsizing this summer. 

Step 2: Customize Your New Home with the Latest Renovations 

Unlike other retirement communities based on renting, Maplewood’s resident ownership model allows you to personalize the décor and flow of any floor plan. Our in-house remodeling team will handle all the renovation details, so you can prepare for the move in other ways. Create your new home without the stress of coordinating with contractors or living in a construction zone.  

Right now, we have generous renovation packages on select homes. There’s never been a better time to move to Maplewood Park Place. Watch as we bring your personal tastes and vision to life in your choice of one-, two- or three-bedroom residences. While the team works through the process, you can continue to enjoy the diverse programming on-site or explore the Washington metropolitan area with convenient community transportation. Once your custom renovation is finished, all that’s left for you to do is move into your new home. 

Step 3: Rightsize with Help from the Professionals 

When faced with the prospect of organizing and packing items from your current house, it can be difficult to decide exactly where to start. Especially if you’ve lived in the same place for many years, you may wrestle with the thought of leaving anything behind. At Maplewood Park Place, we encourage you to bring your memories with you and look forward to making new ones with friends and neighbors who once held those same reservations. 

On select homes, our rightsizing package makes the entire process easier and ensures you have everything you need to create a home within the community. We partner with local full-service move management company, Graceful Transitions, to offer this assistance, but owner residents are free to work with any team.  

Unlike downsizing that focuses on going smaller, to rightsize means to “convert something to an appropriate or optimum size.” Professionals experienced in this art will come to see your current home and help you create a plan for what to move. After effectively organizing your belongings, they’ll start to pack possessions you intend to keep and dispose of those items you no longer need. Don’t worry about drafting friends and family into helping you move; a team of professionals will take care of everything for you. 

Once you’re ready to relocate, you can skip the stress of coordinating movers, unpacking and setting up your new home altogether. The rightsizing specialists will handle all of that as you check into a local hotel and relax. When their work is complete, you’ll see your beautiful apartment transformed into your new home – decorated with your favorite things.  

And in many ways your home just got a whole lot bigger when you enjoy all the well-appointed entertaining and activity spaces Maplewood Park Place has to offer. 

With a variety of apartments currently available, you can start planning your summer move today. Contact us to schedule a tour of the community and discuss the details of all our summertime incentives. You may be able to take advantage of each package mentioned here for a stress-free moving experience. The support you’ll receive from our Maplewood community, even before you officially move in, will make you wonder why you waited so long to make Maplewood Park Place your new home.
