NEWS RELEASE: Immediate – June 2018

Housing is HOT - Tour the HBA’s 2018 Summer Parade of Homes

The Home Builders Association (HBA) of Greater Cleveland is pleased to announce the annual Summer Parade of Homes, June 2 & 3 and June 9 & 10 from 12 noon – 5 P.M.  The Parade highlights 24 New Homes and 18 professional custom home builders and admission is FREE.  These homes on Tour include styles from modern urban farmhouse architecture to luxurious town homes and everything in between!

 HBA Executive Director Brenda Callaghan says, “The housing market is really hot right now and the Parade gives consumers an opportunity to visit a variety of new homes and interview prospective builders. This year’s homes range in prices from $215,000 to $4 million.” Although most of the homes average about 2500 square feet, there is one amazing home in the Parade that is just under 10,000 square feet – a must see!

The new model homes are located in seven different counties throughout northeast Ohio including Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Lorain, Medina, Portage and Summit Counties.  Communities on the Tour are as far west as Bay Village, south to North Canton and to the east - Concord and Mentor.

Callaghan adds that new homes are built to accommodate today’s busy lifestyles – including urban condos and single-family homes that feature open floor plans, flexible spaces, low-maintenance materials and other amenities that make them more appealing than ever before.

With energy costs near the top of consumer concerns, it’s good to know that new homes can be more energy efficient than ever. Innovative materials and construction techniques mean that today’s new homes are built to be much more energy efficient than homes constructed a generation ago. Not only can they be more affordable to operate, new homes also are significantly more resource efficient and environmentally friendly.

And in many areas, prospective home buyers who wish to live in age-qualified communities for those 55 and older will find a large selection of homes tailored to the evolving lifestyles of the baby boom generation.

The HBA Parade of Homes is sponsored by 84 Lumber, consumers should contact the HBA of Greater Cleveland at 216-447-8700 or visit HBAcleveland.com for a list of the homes and directions. Visitors can also download the FREE mobile app, Parade Craze on their smart phone or tablet and view all of the homes in the Parade. Users will see a quick profile of the builder, a list of the homes’ features and get immediate directions to any or all of the homes.
