Pa­rade of Homes? It must be spring...

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - HOMES - By Mike Moore

NO, Punx­sutawney Phil and Wiar­ton Wil­lie didn’t change their minds about their shad­ows, nor did a chi­nook sud­denly sweep across the prairies.

This is much big­ger news. The Spring Pa­rade of Homes starts Mar. 6 and runs through Mar. 21. This an­nual dis­play of the best new homes of the sea­son is our surest sign that spring is just around the cor­ner.

Tens of thou­sands of peo­ple will de­scend upon an as­sort­ment of neigh­bour­hoods to see what’s new this year; to learn about de­sign and ma­te­ri­als and to dis­cover their new dream home. All of this be­gins to hap­pen in just one week.

So, what does this year’s Spring Pa­rade of Homes have to of­fer? For starters, there will be 95 uniquely dif­fer­ent new homes on dis­play. That’s 95 dif­fer­ent de­signs, styles and tastes be­ing pre­sented to the con­sumer.

When one con­sid­ers some of the larger Pa­rades in other mu­nic­i­pal cen­tres of Canada max out at 30 homes, hav­ing 95 avail­able here is truly as­tound­ing.

Nowhere else in Canada is so much va­ri­ety and se­lec­tion on dis­play.

Th­ese 95 homes can be found in 30 dif­fer­ent sub­di­vi­sions. There­fore, not only can you look for the price and style of your new home, you can also in­ves­ti­gate a wide va­ri­ety of neigh­bour­hoods in which to lo­cate it. There is an out­stand­ing se­lec­tion both within and out­side the City of Win­nipeg. The dis­cern­ing buyer can ob­serve nearby ameni­ties and trans­porta­tion routes as­so­ci­ated with each lo­ca­tion.

The Spring Pa­rade of Homes is de­lighted to present homes built by 38 unique builders. Each builder has brought their own spe­cial de­sign, style and craft to each home. The best of the best is on dis­play at this year’s event.

It is no se­cret that Man­i­to­ban new homes are the best built and most en­ergy ef­fi­cient in Canada. Hav­ing such a vast se­lec­tion on dis­play makes this the per­fect mar­ket for lo­cal con­sumers.

Look for the Spring Pa­rade of Homes mag­a­zine in the Mar. 6 edi­tion of the Win­nipeg Free Press. Af­ter that date, it will also be ac­ces­si­ble on­line at www.win­nipegfreep­ress.com or ww.home­builders.mb.ca.

Don’t miss the 2010 Spring Pa­rade of Homes, your first true sign of spring.
