Annual Parade of Homes in Southeastern Michigan Opens June 1


The 26th annual Parade of Homes, an exhibition sponsored by the Home Builders Association of Southeastern Michigan, will feature more than 50 model homes this year across the region. The event runs June 1-30.

“The new homes featured in this program offer a good cross section of the homes being built throughout southeastern Michigan,” says Norm Finkelstein, 2015 president of the nonprofit trade group that programs the free public event.

“We’re excited to be building innovative new homes for the families of southeastern Michigan and to be offering them at a variety of price points,” says Finkelstein, builder of Norwood Homes, a division of The Norwood Cos. in Farmington Hills.

The homes and condominiums, in both pre-construction and construction phases, range in base price from about $140,000 to $1.4 million. The offerings include three attached condominiums, four detached condominium, along with 46 single-family homes. Nine of the homes are pre-construction, meaning homebuyers could work with the builder from the beginning of construction.

More than 20 different builders who are all members of the Home Builders Association are constructing the homes. Architects and industry experts will judge the designs under such categories as innovation, aesthetic appeal, and value.

Last year, parade homes were in cities such as Harrison Township, Westland, Oakland Township, and Clarkston.

A free Parade of Homes magazine including photos, renderings, features, hours, and location maps for all homes will be available at Bank of America locations throughout southeastern Michigan, at select Kroger locations, and at all participating model homes beginning June 1. The Parade of Homes website will also be available beginning June 1 at
