This year's Fall Parade of Homes, which runs from noon today through Oct. 6, is the largest Parade in history, presenting 126 new display homes for everyone to enjoy.
That's a whopping 25-per-cent increase over the previous high. Show-home hours are Monday through Thursday from 3-8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from noon to 6 p.m. Show homes are closed on Fridays except by prior appointment.
Sales staff are in each home, ready to explain its unique and special features. Each visitor is sure to come away with new ideas and concepts to incorporate into their new home.
Ask about the various builders and suppliers -- after all, Manitoba Home Builders' Association members pride themselves on constructing the best new homes in Canada.
This year, 35 builders are featuring their finest new homes in 29 subdivisions. Both single-family detached homes and condominiums are on display. In addition to Winnipeg, there will be show homes in 11 other cities and towns, thereby expanding and serving a larger audience.
The Fall Parade of Homes has something for everyone. Quality, choice and affordability are all key components for each new home.
If you're looking for that first new home, this is your opportunity to see the widest variety at one time. If you're considering selling your existing home to get more space, less space, more yard, less yard, newer amenities or a different design, everything that you could possibly imagine is featured at the Fall Parade of Homes.
As well, if you're thinking of making some changes in your existing home, nowhere else will you see so many new and dynamic building styles and techniques as the Fall Parade of Homes. If you just want to see the best of the best and envision your dream home, this is the place to do it.
