Why Should I Attend the Parade of Homes?

By August 15, 2017 No Comments


If you’re unaware, this past weekend was the official opening for the 2017 Metropolitan Builder’s Association Parade of Homes. Twenty-two houses in three suburban Milwaukee subdivisions – including Trustway’s very own Acadia IV, located in Four Winds West in the Village of Hartland – offered the public a look at the latest home styles.

You might be asking yourself, “Why should I attend the Parade of Homes?” To help you make the decision easier, we’ve compiled 5 reasons to attend below:

  1. Inspiration
    The Parade of Homes is a great place to gather ideas, see the current trends and to discover just how many options you have when working with a custom home builder. Even if you’re not on the market to purchase a new home, you can find inspiration to either decorate your current home – or even remodel! Did you know our remodeling division, Stone & Banister specializes in kitchens, bathrooms, additions and basements?
  2. Research
    If you’re hoping to build your dream home, it’s important to do your research ahead of time to ensure a smooth process. The Parade of Homes is a great opportunity to see and learn as much as possible in-person and to compare and list the pros and cons of the model you’re touring.  This helps you to make an informed and educated decision based on what you have seen and learned for yourself.
  3. Scope the Neighborhood
    Maybe you already know you want to build, but you’re just not sure what neighborhood makes the most sense for you and your family! The Parade of Homes is a great time to visit the participating neighborhoods to determine what each community has to offer.
  4. Up Close & Personal
    A picture is worth a thousand words, but an up-close and in-person look is priceless. Touring the Parade of Homes allows you to interact with the home. Open the cabinets & drawers to experience the slow close feature, inspect the pantry to see just how much space there is to offer, stand in the shower to see how spacious it feels. There’s no better way to determine if a home is right for you than to walk through it!
  5. Prepare
    The Parade of Homes can help educate you on pricing and let you evaluate the quality of the home by seeing it for yourself. Be sure to look for things like technology updates, as well as finishes and upgrades offered throughout the home.

Don’t worry, it’s not too late to join in on the fun! If you’d like to attend,  The Parade of Homes is open to the public through Labor Day, September 4th! Weekdays hours are 4 pm – 8 pm and weekends are 11 am – 5 pm. We hope to see you at the Acadia IV. Get your tickets here!
