The Manitoba Home Builders’ Association’s Parade of Homes continues to be our industry’s largest showcase, highlighting the incredible show homes of the MHBA’s home building members and allowing new home buyers a unique chance to see the latest in new home options and the newest trends in home style and design.
While the MHBA’s Parade of Homes receives a lot attention while they are in full swing, it’s important to remember that the show homes featured in the Parade are open year-round.
Even though the 2020 Spring Parade of Homes concluded earlier than scheduled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the amazing array of Parade show homes featured continue to be open for your viewing pleasure, but in a different way than usual. Increased health and safety measures, as well as adhering to social and physical distancing and sanitation guidelines, are necessary for everyone at this time including those working in or visiting builder show homes These measures are in place to allow you to visit these amazing show homes in as safe an environment as possible.
In fact, the spring and summer months provide a great opportunity for new home buyers to visit show homes in between the spring and fall Parades. Visiting during the summer months will allow you to see many of the home features, like the air conditioning, in full operation. Spring and summer is a perfect time to explore the features and characteristics of the new communities featured in the Parade of Homes. Picking the right community is just as important as picking the right home design for your family’s needs.
So where can you find out information on show home locations and hours? You can visit the MHBA website at homebuilders.mb.ca and click on the Parade of Homes tab. There you can find all of the show homes with contact information to set up a private viewing. As well, you can find a digital version of the most recent Parade Magazine.
