The Parade of Homes 2020, co-sponsored by the Home Builders Association of Southeastern Michigan, Lake Michigan Credit Union, and James Hardie, is now available online through Sept. 30. It is the 31st annual exhibition of new model homes in southeastern Michigan.
The Parade of Homes offers potential homebuyers an opportunity to see the area’s finest model and inventory homes, including condominiums and single-family homes, affordable housing, and estate-sized homes.
Visitors to the website and to the homes, by appointment, will have an opportunity to see the latest trends in energy efficiency and green building, architecture, interior design, amenities, and materials.
“As we work in the difficult conditions created by the COVID-19 pandemic, we are pleased to have 60 new homes built by HBA members featured in this program,” says Michael Stoskopf, CEO of HBA. “For now, the homes are available to view on the program’s website and at each participating builder’s website, many of which include 3-D virtual model tours.
“Per executive order, all in-person home visits are by appointment only. As conditions change, we hope that visits to the homes, without prior appointments, will be allowed once again.”
The 60 model, under construction, and pre-construction homes and condominiums, start at $162,900 for a 1,250-square-foot, two-bedroom, two-bathroom condominium in Burton.
More expensive real estate in the Parade of Homes include a 3,665-square-foot, four-bedroom home with three full and two half bathrooms in Bloomfield Hills. It is listed at $1,475,000 and features a backyard view of the Lincoln Hills Golf Course, a gourmet kitchen with an oversized party starter island, a complete stainless-steel appliance package, large master bedroom walk-in closet and bathroom with heated floors featuring a large walk-in spa shower and free-standing soaker tub, and a three-car attached garage.
Another house in the Parade of Homes is a $595,500 property in Farmington Hills that features four bedrooms, two full and one half bathroom, and situated on a one-acre wooded lot with 9-foot ceilings on the first floor. It has granite countertops throughout, a two-car attached garage, and its basement is prepped for a future bathroom.
The homes are built by 18 different builders, all members of HBA. The Parade of Homes includes six attached condominiums and seven detached condominiums. Seven of the homes are under construction, so potential home buyers have the opportunity to work with the builder from the beginning of construction.
Pending elimination of the restrictions on homes being shown without appointments later this year, a second phase of the Parade of Homes is planned beginning Aug. 30 with magazine distribution and other in person and online events.
