Winnipeg Free Press - PRINT EDITION

Parade will feature more than 100 new homes

  • Print

After enduring an extremely long, cold and painful winter, we welcome the 2014 Spring Parade of Homes, which opens at noon today, Saturday, March 1 and runs through Sunday, March 23. The Manitoba Home Builders Association is proud to present 122 new homes on display for everyone to enjoy.

Show home hours are Monday through Thursday from 3 to 8 p.m.,

Saturday and Sunday from noon to 6 p.m. Show homes are closed on Fridays except by prior appointment

Sales staff are in each home, ready to explain the unique and special features of that home. Feel free to ask lots of questions about the various builders and suppliers. After all, MHBA new home builders pride themselves on building the best new homes in Canada. Each visitor is sure to come away with new ideas and concepts to incorporate into their new home.

This year, 36 different builders are featuring the finest new homes in 31 unique neighbourhoods. Both single family detached homes and condominiums are on display. Quality, choice and affordability are all key components for each new home.

A special feature of this years' Parade is that you get to select the winners. In past years, a panel of five judges visited groups of five homes and rated them on a variety of features. This year, every person who visits every home gets to rank that home on a five point scale in four separate categories.

Simply hold your smartphone over the QR code in each home and give it from one to five stars in each of these categories:

Overall Value and Quality of Home; Functionality, Traffic Flow and Room Proportion; Special Design Features; and Interior Visual Appeal.

The Spring Parade of Homes has something for everyone. If you're looking for that first new home, this is your opportunity to see the widest variety at one time. If you're considering selling your existing home for more space, less space, more yard, less yard, newer amenities and a different design, everything that you could possibly be looking for is featured at the Spring Parade of Homes.

If you just want to see the best of the best and envision your dream home, this is the place to do it. Your new home starts with the Spring Parade of Homes.

The Spring Parade of Homes runs from March 1 to 23. If you missed the Parade magazine in your Winnipeg Free Press home delivery, it's available online at www.homebuilders.mb.ca or www.winnipegfreepress.com. These sites will also lead you to the ranking pages for each new home in the event that you didn't have your phone with you while visiting. You can also pick up a copy at any Steinbach Credit Union.

We invite Parade attendees to submit their comments and questions on our Twitter and Facebook pages. Come early and come often to the Spring Parade of Homes.

Mike Moore is president of the Manitoba Homebuilders' Association.
