Pa­rade show homes still avail­able for view­ing

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

ALTHOUGH the 2015 Spring Pa­rade of Homes ended March 29, you still have plenty of op­por­tu­nity to re-visit those fan­tas­tic show homes that you saw dur­ing the three weeks of Pa­rade. The weather was out­stand­ing this year and Man­i­to­bans re­sponded well as the crowds were tremen­dous. How­ever, it’s very dif­fi­cult to visit ev­ery home, no mat­ter how hard you try. If you were like most peo­ple, you con­cen­trated on a few neigh­bour­hoods and vis­ited all of the new homes in that area. How­ever, there were un­doubt­edly many homes that you wanted to see but just couldn’t get to in such a short time. Many peo­ple have the mis­taken no­tion that show homes are only open dur­ing the spring and fall Pa­rade of Homes. In fact, they are open year round and, although the hours may not be the same as dur­ing the Pa­rade, they are able to ac­com­mo­date all in­ter­ested clients. Although you re­ceived an ex­cel­lent wel­come and in­tro­duc­tion to each new home, it was un­doubt­edly busy and may have been dif­fi­cult for you to have a pri­vate con­ver­sa­tion with the sales rep­re­sen­ta­tive re­gard­ing the ameni­ties of that home. The pur­chase of a new home is an im­por­tant de­ci­sion and, now that you have vis­ited the best new homes in Man­i­toba, you prob­a­bly have a num­ber of ques­tions that you would like to ask. You can still view the of­fi­cial Pa­rade mag­a­zine on the Man­i­toba Home Builders As­so­ci­a­tion web­site (www. home­ or the Win­nipeg Free Press web­site ( The mag­a­zine has a list­ing of all of the homes, where they are lo­cated, a brief de­scrip­tion of each and the base and sell­ing prices. Whether it was the lo­ca­tion or the builder or the par­tic­u­lar home that in­ter­ested you, it’s all in the Pa­rade mag­a­zine. The im­por­tant thing to re­mem­ber is that al­most all of the won­der­ful show homes that you saw dur­ing the Spring Pa­rade of Homes are still avail­able for view­ing. Cre­ate your own per­sonal pa­rade by vis­it­ing some of the homes that you weren’t able to get to and re-visit those that in­trigued you but re­quired more view­ing time. The 2015 Spring Pa­rade of Homes may be over, but the op­por­tu­nity to pur­chase your new dream home has just be­gun.

Mike Moore is pres­i­dent of the Man­i­toba Home Builders’ As­so­ci­a­tion.
