Mark your calendars: North Carolina’s “largest open house,” the Triangle Parade of Homes, will run for the first three weekends in October this year.
The Parade of Homes gives the public the opportunity to tour more than 250 homes from local homebuilders and includes homes in Wake, Durham, Orange, and Chatham counties. If you’re interested in purchasing a new home, the Parade is an excellent opportunity to compare homebuilders and get a better feel for the items on your ‘must have’ list. The homes featured range from the low $200,000s to $2.3 million, so there is sure to be a home of interest for everyone.
Even if you’re not looking to purchase a new home…
…the Parade of Homes can be an excellent opportunity to check out the latest trends in home design, explore ideas and finishes for an upcoming remodeling project, or simply be inspired by beautiful interior design. Many of the homes on the Parade are professionally staged in the latest design trends, making them a font of inspiration for anyone looking to update their home décor.

Parade-goers can now easily plan their tour via the Parade of Homes website and the Parade of Homes mobile app!

If you find yourself seriously considering buying a new home or a building a home, remember that it is critically important to have a buyer’s agent represent you.
Builders often use their own contracts which are drafted differently than the contract from the NC State Bar Association. The builder’s representatives are sometimes employees of the builder and not licensed NC real estate agents and during the Parade of Homes, the agents will remind you the other buyers are also very interested in the same neighborhood.
The process of buying a new home can be tricky to determine what builder options are truly valuable and which lots are going to be best for resale. Give me a call! I’d be happy to talk to you more in-depth about builders, neighborhoods, timing your purchase, and more. Call Amy for your Shair of the market!
