2018 Fall Parade of Homes

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The 2018 Fall Parade of Homes is right around the corner!  The start of school means the advent of all things fall– pumpkin patches, fall home tours and pumpkin spice lattes aren’t far behind! The Fall Parade is presented by The Home Builders Association of Greater Kansas City (HBA) and is sponsored by Stewart Title.  Every year, thousands of area homeowners tour the Fall (and Spring) Parades for the latest in home design and construction.  Therefore, the annual event has become highly anticipated and kicks the already hot back-to-school buying season into full-on overdrive!  Homeowners looking to upgrade to a larger home, downsize to a smaller one or just browsing for design ideas will be sure to find lots of inspiration.This year’s Fall Parade of Homes features 330 homes!

Fall parades and home shows often spur people to tackle small (or major) home improvement projects or even look for a new home to purchase.  And new construction continues to be as big as ever.  We’ve blogged about the hot market and how it’s led to low inventory.  Listings are moving quickly and properties are hot, both new construction and resale.

The Fall Parade of Homes hours

The event runs September 22 through October 7, 2018. Homes will be open from 11 a.m to 6 p.m with free admission.  You can pick up a guide outside the HBA at I-435 and Holmes one week prior to the Parade.  Guides are also available in each of the Parade homes during the Parade.

Why visit the Fall Parade?

KC HBA President Harold Phelps (also President of Phelps Engineering) talks about the Parade and why people should come out to see the ideas, innovations and opportunities that abound for home buyers in the Kansas City market!
