2017 Spring Parade of Home Showcases West Michigan New Home Construction

 

 

 

The annual Spring Parade of Homes presented by the Home Builders Association of Greater Grand Rapids and sponsored by Lake Michigan Credit Union will feature 72 homes created by 56 different builders in this year’s event. Providing inspiration for potential home buyers or those looking to remodel, as well as giving guests an opportunity to check out the integrity our builders provide West Michigan.

 

The Grand Rapids Spring Parade of Homes kicks off May 26 and continues through June 10, 2017.  Homes will be open Fridays and Saturdays from 1- 9 pm and on Wednesdays from 5-9pm. We are excited to work closely with our sponsor, Lake Michigan Credit Union. With many locations to be able to purchase tickets from and the warm staff to provide support, as well as increase awareness for the parade, we know this partnership will benefit and increase awareness for all parade-goers.

 

“With the tight real estate market we are facing today, we see even more interest in new homes than years past,” says Andy Lofgren, HBAGGR Executive Officer. “The Parade of Homes will be featuring trade-up and premium homes. Some are available to buy while others showcase the builders who are ready to build custom homes in this strong economy. We are confident that our members will display the best this industry has to offer.”

 

The $10 Spring Parade of Homes tickets are available through our website, myGRhome.com or at any of Lake Michigan Credit Union’s local branches. You can also purchase tickets for $12 at the homes.

 

The Parade will feature homes from 16 different West Michigan communities ranging from city center to the lakeshore.  The communities include: Grandville, Hudsonville, Jenison, Allendale, Coopersville, Grand Rapids, Rockford, Ada, Belmont, Lowell, Kentwood, Caledonia, Byron Center, Shelbyville, Wayland, and Byron Center.  With prices ranging from $150,000 to over $1 million, builders will be showcasing the latest trends in building styles, using green practices, custom details, unique floor coverings, the latest wall treatments, quality products, and landscaping.

 

For more information on the Parade of Homes, you can contact the HBA at (616) 281-2021, or view the Parade online at www.mygrhome.com/paradeofhomes.

 

 

The Home Builders Association of Greater Grand Rapids (HBAGGR), a professional trade non-profit organization, was founded by 18 builders and chartered by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) in 1945. Its members are committed to providing quality homes, buildings, renovations, products and services for the entire region through adherence to ethical practices, community involvement, advocacy and education.
