The Fall Parade of Homes kicks off today and builders across the metro have been busy preparing their homes for the large crowds expected during the two-week tour.

“The rainy summer caused delays in construction throughout all of our new-home communities,” explained Jenni Mann, manager of residential marketing for Hunt Midwest Residential. “Despite the challenge posed by the weather, we’re pleased to have 19 homes across six of our communities entered in the Parade. All homes are professionally decorated and showcase the latest trends in paint colors, finishes and floor plan design.”

Here’s a sneak peak of the communities and homes that will be featured during the Parade:

▪  The rural landscape surrounding Running Horse provides for beautiful tree-top views and an escape from the hustle and bustle of nearby city life. Visitors can tour homes by Aspen Homes (No. 107) at 15705 NW 124th St. and Ernst Brothers Home Construction (No. 108) at 12255 Belmont Drive.

▪  The Reserve at Riverstone is the Northland’s fastest growing new-home community, attracting residents with its prime location, top-rated school district and beautiful, stones-clad homes. Parade-goers won’t want to miss the debut of Brookeview Homes’ two-story (No. 106) at 9048 N. Seymour Ave. and Ernst Brothers Home Construction (No. 105) at 9108 N. Seymour Ave.

▪  It’s clear from first impressions that Staley Hills takes pride in its appearance and its amenities.

▪  Eagle Creek has been the choice of Lee’s Summit families looking for a country-like setting without sacrificing on location. Parade visitors are encouraged to stop in to see homes by SAB Homes (No. 15) 2425 SW Hickory Lane.; Sallee Homes (No. 16) at 2401 SW Hickory Lane; and Summit Custom Homes (No. 17) at 2322 SW River Trail Road.

“Whether you’re in the market for a new home, just starting to explore the idea of building new or looking for redecorating and remodeling ideas, the Parade offers a low-pressure, no obligation way to view hundreds of homes,” said Mann. “Our community managers will be available to answer any questions you may have. They’re experts on new-home construction and specialize in making the home buying and building process enjoyable.”
