If your not in the Real Estate marketplace, you may not be familiar with Parade of Homes. You may only think of it as an opportunity to view million dollar properties that you can’t afford but would love to live in? Either way, Parade of Homes is a “Big Thing” to those in the Real Estate business. For Wake County, its traditionally the first 3 weekends of October when all the builders, developers and real estate agents get to flaunt their prize possessions, show-off some fine craftsmanship, promote new neighborhoods and SELL some houses! Tri-County opens the show the last 2 weeks of September and the first weekend in October. This year, Tri-County has added a bonus weekend the 2nd weekend of October. So for 3 consecutive weekends, both Tri- and Wake County Parades will run congruently giving you lots to look forward too.
Parade of Homes is Saturday and Sunday from 12-5 PM for both Counties with Wake County including Friday as part of the preview. This opportunity gives those interested the ability to view, ask questions, get ideas, learn about new features and amenities and possibly buy a new home.
This year, The Jim Allen Group has 33 entries in both Parades and covers 14 different neighborhoods. Its a big undertaking making sure all 33 homes are staffed with real estate professionals ready to answer questions and provide viewers with details and information about a specific property or neighborhood. But, its also a time for us to share beautiful homes built by some of the areas finest custom home builders. We have over 30 neighborhoods that we market and even more builders whom we are honored to call our partners. These builders take a house and make it a home and make dreams come true for many people.
In the coming weeks, each Parade home will be judged to determine category winners. We at The Jim Allen Group are excited about the potential winners that are among the many homes we represent and anticipate some big winners! As soon as the winners are announced, I will be sure and update our site.
I hope you take some time to visit some of the properties we represent during the Parade of Homes and see for yourself “What makes a House a Home.” You never know, You just might end up buying a New Home.
