Transition period perfect time for viewing show homes

  • Print

The end of March presents the perfect transition period for homeowners, home buyers and everyone else who has antything to do with homes. The Spring Parade of Homes concludes on Sunday, March 25, and the Home Expressions Home and Garden Show runs from March 30 through April 1.

This year's Spring Parade has been blessed with fantastic weather, allowing tremendous crowds to visit all 103 show homes. Although the formal portion of the Parade of Homes ends tomorrow at 6 p.m., most of the show homes that have been part of the event will remain open for viewing well after the Parade of Homes ends.

This year's entrants were an amazing collection of design, style, quality, craftsmanship and choice.

The fall and spring Parades of Homes are two showcase events hosted by the Manitoba Home Builders' Association to demonstrate the best that the new home building industry has to offer. Whether one is in the market for a new home, considering a change or just looking for ideas for their current home, nowhere else is there such a collection of concepts.

What many people fail to realize is that these show homes are open year round for viewing. The hours may be slightly different than during the Parade, but sales representatives are still available to help you with your search for the perfect home. So, if you need to take another look at a couple of homes before making your decision, they are open and ready to welcome you.

If you recall visiting a neighbourhood or series of homes that especially interested you, but you have lost your Parade magazine, don't worry. Just go to the MHBA website at www.homebuilders.mb.ca or the Free Press website at www.winnipegfreepress.com. You can also read the fascinating Parade blogs which provide further insights.

If you attended the Parade of Homes in order to get some ideas to spruce up your current home, more help is on the way. The Home Expressions Home and Garden Show takes place next weekend (Friday through Sunday) at the Winnipeg Convention Centre.

Everything that you want or need for your home is on display. Hundreds of outstanding suppliers will save you hours of driving in that they are all under one roof. This year's special guests are Steven and Chris from CBC.

Visit www.homeexpressions.ca for more details.

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