54th Annual Spring Parade of Homes

Posted: Updated:

 Homes ranging from just under $200,000 to over $1 million will all be open this coming weekend during the Spring Parade of Homes.

The Home Builders Association is showing 70 homes through the F-M area for their 54th year. This spring the parade runs April 24th-27th and May 1st-4th. Hours have changed, homes are open Thursday and Friday from 4pm-8pm, then Saturday and Sunday from noon-5pm.

More than 30 builders in the area have homes in the parade. Eid-Co Homes has three homes showing the workmanship of the builders.

current trends this year tend to be dark wood work, open concept, islands, pantry's in the kitchen, tall ceilings, those are some of the key things I've noticed coming up.” says Kristie Eid.

Many homes are furnished by designers which can give homeowners ideas how to update their house.

"Some simple quick things to update your home may be updating your appliances, counter tops, faucets in the kitchen or bath, light fixtures in some of the key areas like your dining room or when you first come into a foyer. Those are some ways to start slowly bringing in up to date items." Kristie says.

But before touring or buying Jason and Kristie Eid say people should research both the builders and materials to know exactly what they are going to get.

" It's always good to educate yourself before going in about what materials, about what costs are going to come up down the road vs right up front.” Kristie says, “And how much control are you going to have in the process, what do you get to select, what you don't, how much modifying can you do, just so you can get the home you would like."

Magazines featuring the homes in the parade are available at Hornbacher’s. The two weekend event is free except a tour of four luxury homes which is $5. Proceeds from the luxury homes go to the Home Builders Care of F-M Foundation.
