Consumers have a chance before the leaves fall to view a showcase of 28 new homes by 17 Builders in the Fargo-Moorhead area. Hosted by the Home Builders Association of Fargo-Moorhead, the Fall Parade of Homes will run two weekends, Sept. 8-9 and 15-16. Hours are noon – 5 p.m. each day. Admission is free.
The Fall Parade will include a wide range of prices in developments throughout Fargo, Moorhead and West Fargo. The homes are built with pride by HBA of F-M Builder members, each with his or her distinct style. Bright yellow and blue directional signs and pennants will mark homes participating in the Parade.
Last year, nationwide expenditures on remodeling topped those on new construction for the first time. To go along with this trend, the HBA of F-M will host its first Remodeled Home Tour in conjunction with the final weekend of its Fall Parade of Homes Sept. 15-16. Hours are noon – 5 p.m. and the event will be detailed in the Fall Parade of Homes event magazine.
Sponsored by Accent Kitchen & Bath, the Tour will feature seven remodeling projects by various HBA of F-M member contractors in existing homes throughout the metro area. Consumers can see a full-house renovation, bathrooms, kitchens and basements, plus more. Bright orange and blue directional signs and pennants will mark homes participating in the Tour.
Parade of Homes magazines, including details on the Remodeled Home Tour, will be available at all Hornbacher’s stores beginning Sept. 4. The magazine will be a full-color, glossy publication with a half page dedicated to each entry. Remodeling projects will be represented through photographs, and new homes will be depicted through full-color, 3-D renderings. The magazine will include detailed maps to each entry, as well as a condensed listing of all entries in the event. An insert with entry listings will be published in The Forum Sept. 2.
Consumers may access the Parade and Remodeled Home Tour online at www.hbafm.com beginning Sept. 4. The interactive website will allow consumers to browse homes, view maps and look for Builders and remodelers.
