Everyone loves a parade, especially the Parade of Homes hosted by the Home Builders Association of Lake-Sumter. This year’s parade promises to be one of the best since the Great Recession. With limited local housing inventory and increased demand, expect the crowds to be large. As in years past, there is no charge to view the homes on the parade route.
The Parade of Homes runs from Feb. 25 to March 5 and includes 30 entries comprised of custom homes, remodels, communities and builder models. The vast array of participants will give everyone something to see. The Parade of Homes viewing times are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and from noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday. Note that remodel entries are only available for viewing on Feb. 25 and 26.
The Dream Community for this year’s parade is Harbor Hills, 6538 Lake Griffin Road in Lady Lake. This beautiful community nestled on Lake Griffin has one of the best golf courses and scenic views in Central Florida. Harbor Hills is a gated community offering boating, tennis, a marina and junior olympic-size pool for its residents.
In my opinion, the Parade of Homes is like Pinterest live. For anyone considering a construction project, the parade offers the opportunity to see and meet outstanding builders. Plus, you can see tricked-out homes competing for honors and recognition. The Parade of Homes is an outstanding time to buy, because many builders want to sell the property they are showing. It just goes without saying, many are wheeling and dealing.
If you are planning to view homes in the parade, be sure to come prepared to take notes, pictures and have an open mind. Remember, viewing something in person is much different than viewing it on a computer screen. Also, it’s not a race. Take your time as you walk through the homes and don’t be shy, ask a lot of questions.
My top piece of advice for having a successful tour is: Don’t bring small children. Of course, children are welcome at the Parade of Homes, but you can’t fully concentrate and discuss home features with children who would rather be playing on a playground or watching a movie. Make your Parade of Homes tour a date with your significant other, with an easy drive, delicious lunch and no kids. That might be the best reason yet to attend the Parade of Homes.
The Home Builders Association of Lake-Sumter is placing Parade of Homes guides throughout the community. For information or to find the closest guide, call the Home Builders Association of Lake-Sumter at 352-343-7101 or email Lisa Templin-Rayborn at Exec@LakeSumterHBA.com. Each home will have directional signs from the main thoroughfares. The Parade of Homes is definitely worth a weekend pleasure drive.
Don Magruder is the CEO of Ro-Mac Lumber & Supply Inc. He is also the host of the Around the House radio show heard every Monday at noon on My790AM WLBE in Leesburg.
