Parade of Homes 2024, the 35th annual exhibition of new model homes located across southeastern Michigan, is running throughout June. The Home Builders Association of Southeastern Michigan (HBA) and Lake Michigan Credit Union are sponsoring the  free event.

As part of the Parade of Homes program, architects and industry experts judge the homes and award blue ribbons in several categories. The judges make their decisions based on a combination of factors including innovation, aesthetic appeal, and value for the price.

“We are proud to be featuring the Blue Ribbon winners and all the Parade of Homes models in this program. The program offers potential homebuyers a unique opportunity to see the area’s finest newly built homes,” says Forrest M. Wall, CEO of HBA. “The homes are available to view in person, based on the hours shown for each individual home and on the program’s website at www.ParadeHBA.com.”

The blue ribbon winning homes, based on price of model as shown, are:

  • Under $500,000 – Lincoln in Detroit by Robertson Homes
  • Over $500,000 to $600,000 – Peyton – D in Chesterfield Township by M/I Homes
  • Over $600,000 to $675,000 – The Sunset in Milford Village by R.L. Corp.
  • Over $675,000 to $750,000 – Preston in South Lyon by Singh Homes
  • Over $750,000 to $900,000 – Madison in Canton Township by Evergreen Homes
  • Over $900,000 – Grand Morningside in Washington Township by MJC Cos.

Judges for this year’s program were Lonny S. Zimmerman, AIA, NCARB of Siegal/Tuomaala Associates; Benedetto Tiseo, FAIA, NCARB of Tiseo Architects, Inc.; Michael J. Gordon, RA of Moiseev/Gordon Associates and Marty Peltier, Chief Business Development Officer of Lake Michigan Credit Union.

Included in the Parade of Homes are condominiums and single-family homes, affordable housing, and estate-sized homes. The program provides an opportunity to see the latest trends in energy efficiency and green building, architecture, interior design, amenities, and materials.

The 32 models — homes and condominiums — range in “starting from” price from the mid $230,000s to the mid $900,000s. When the homes are considered by their “price of model as shown” they range in price up to just over $1.1 million.

The homes are built by 16 different builders, all members of HBA. The home builders include Robertson Brothers Homes, Moceri Custom Homes, Toll Brothers, M/I Homes, Infinity Homes & Co., MJC Cos., Vitale Real Estate, AP Builders, Singh Homes, Evergreen Homes, and more.

The Parade of Homes includes five attached condominiums and two detached condominiums. Six of the homes and two condominiums are under construction or pre-construction, so potential home buyers have the opportunity to work with the builder from the beginning of construction. Homes are located in 29 different communities.

The homes are featured in a free magazine available at Lake Michigan Credit Union branches in southeastern Michigan and at each of the participating homes. The Parade of Homes website features the Blue Ribbon winning homes and all the 2024 Parade of Homes models, including photos, features, pricing, location and hours.

It will be available for viewing for a full year at: ParadeHBA.com.
