Parade of Homes? It must be spring...
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.
