Renovating your home? Visit the Remodelers Showcase for ideas

This fall, the Remodelers Showcase is offered in addition to the classic Parade of Homes. Over the course of three days, the Remodelers Showcase provides an exclusive look at 30+ remodeled homes in the area.

Attendees of the Remodelers Showcase can learn from contractors and architects who remodel properties to better align with today’s homeowner needs while maintaining the integrity of each unique property. Make note of renovations that catch your eye, as you may find them helpful while completing your own home improvements.

Should I bring my Realtor to the Parade of Homes?

Yes! It is in your best interest to work with a Realtor as you tour the Parade of Homes or as you work to build a brand-new home. Here’s why:

  • A Realtor is a housing expert who will thoroughly explain the steps and timeline associated with buying or building a home.
  • Your agent will advocate for you throughout the entire process, providing advice on key decisions and negotiations.
  • If a Parade of Homes property stands out to you, your Realtor can help discover a comparable property in your desired area.
  • Should a challenge arise, your Realtor will help troubleshoot and resolve any bumps in the process.

Be sure to work with your agent to plan a tour that visits the properties that interest you the most. By teaming up with someone who has expertise in the field — and your well-being and best interests at heart — you can rest assured you’re making the right decisions as you purchase a new construction home.
