Roy Rogers Rides Back into Silver Spring Again!!

New Roy Rogers in Burtonsville, MdRoy’s Double R Bar Burgers, Real Roast Beef  Sandwiches and Strawberry Shortcakes are back in the Silver Spring Area.

Technically, it is not in Silver Spring, but it’s close enough ! ! !

This Roy Rogers is in Burtonsville (just up the pike, at the edge of Silver Spring)   It is in a newly redeveloped Shopping Center.  This shopping center is located at Old Columbia Pike & Route 29 and just got a face lift. It’s the same place where that wonderful Dutch Country Farmers Market (that has since moved to Laurel) used to be.

I know people that still talk about and lament the loss of the Four Corners Roy Rogers and the one that was in White Oak.  Both were replaced by McDonalds at least a decade ago or more.

I guess you don’t realize how much you liked something until it is gone from the area.

This Roy Rogers will be open this Friday, December 21st, 2012 or so they said.  I stuck my camera inside the place to get a shot of the interior.

If you’ve been longing for your Roy Rogers favorites you will not have to drive to some obscure location like Solomon’s Island, Westminster or Frederick, Maryland anymore.

Should I List My Silver Spring or Takoma Park House For Sale During the Holidays?

Have you heard that real estate slows down during the holidays, so there’s no sense in listing until January?
If so, you’ve only heard part of the truth.
The number of showings does slow down, but the reasons for that are not reasons to wait. It may surprise you, but one reason is that there are fewer agents working. Some of them have bought into the idea that business is slow, so they’re taking time off. They’re not advertising their services or marketing their existing listings. Some aren’t even returning their calls.
Another important reason is that the people who are in no hurry to buy are doing other things.  That means serious sellers aren’t bothered by non-serious buyers.
Those who search for a home during the holidays are usually serious – they’re looking because they need to buy. Perhaps there’s a job transfer in the offing and they need to find a new home soon. Perhaps their children’s school holiday is the only time they can come to town. Whatever the reason, they’re taking time out from their own holiday celebrations to hunt for a home.
Wouldn’t you like to have your home shown to that kind of buyers?
While it’s true that I won’t be available on <name the holiday you celebrate>, I’ll be here working just like normal the rest of December. So if you’re serious about selling, get in touch today.
Let’s get your house on the market and ready for those serious buyers.
