Fall Pa­rade of Homes at the start­ing line

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

NO doubt many of you have wit­nessed a flurry of ac­tiv­ity on South Waver­ley, South Lag­i­modiere, west off Plessis, the west­erly ex­ten­sion of Leila, south of Kil­dare and through­out com­mu­ni­ties such as Stein­bach and Head­in­g­ley.

That ac­tiv­ity marks the fin­ish­ing touches be­ing put on 100 new homes in readi­ness for the 2010 Fall Pa­rade of Homes, run­ning from Sept. 18 through Oc­to­ber 9 and pre­sented by the Man­i­toba Home Builders’ As­so­ci­a­tion.

Close to 40,000 peo­ple are ex­pected to visit the Pa­rade en­tries across 26 sub­di­vi­sions. Al­though most are in Win­nipeg, this year also fea­tures new homes in Stein­bach, Oak­bank, Lorette, Stonewall, LaSalle, Selkirk and Bran­don. These new homes have been built by 35 builders, the best in their craft.

The MHBA Pa­rade of Homes is the largest, best-at­tended, long­est-run­ning and most in­for­ma­tive event of its kind in Canada. Ev­ery builder wel­comes the pub­lic to visit their showhome and talk to a sales agent. They want ques­tions and they want opin­ions.

Al­though you’re cer­tainly to ac­quire a taste of the new-home ex­pe­ri­ence dur­ing the Pa­rade, builders also want you to re­turn af­ter the event to meet in a qui­eter set­ting to dis­cuss spe­cific homes in more de­tail.

Our city has the third-old­est hous­ing stock in Canada; when Man­i­toba new- home builders con­struct new homes, they build them to last. Man­i­toba new homes are also the most en­ergy-ef­fi­cient in Canada. Wa­ter con­ser­va­tion and en­ergy ef­fi­ciency are im­por­tant con­sid­er­a­tions.

MHBA mem­ber builders and sup­pli­ers keep abreast of the lat­est trends and tech­niques to en­sure that ev­ery de­tail is the best avail­able.

Each of the 100 showhomes is unique. Be cer­tain to ask about spe­cial fea­tures that make a house the right one for you. With such a wide se­lec­tion, you will un­doubt­edly be sur­rounded with out­stand­ing ideas and con­cepts that will make the Fall Pa­rade an en­light­en­ing and en­joy­able ex­pe­ri­ence.

Plan now to visit as many of the new showhomes as pos­si­ble. The dream home that you’ve been look­ing for is wait­ing for you at the 2010 Fall Pa­rade of Homes.
