One of my favorite local "real estate" events is put on by our local Housing and Building Assocation (HBA) annually in August. It's cool because we get to see 30+ homes in all price ranges, new design innovations, colors, staging, furnishings, floor plans, etc!
The public can enter all of these homes with one ticket, purchased though the HBA or at local Safeway and Albertson's grocery stores For $10. Anyone under 18 is free... I think that's still true anyway.
BIG CHANGE... Okay, sort of... They are normally open 17 days from a Friday through Sunday for just over 2 weeks. Well, this year they are open Wednedays through Sundays only, August 3-21... So kind of 3 "long weekends". I'm sure many weekdays are not well attending so in order to give the builders and their hosts/hostesses a bit of a break on Mondays and Tuesdays.
If you have any questions, please feel free to visit www.springsparade.com to include ticket, builder, house info. Have fun!!!
