The Home Builders Association of F-M’s Spring Parade of Homes is all about ideas, trends and making plans for the future. Happening the first three weekends in May, it showcases newly constructed homes in our communities.
While we patiently wait for spring and warmer weather, we thought we’d inspire you with the results of polls hosted on social media during our event last fall. What are your favorite trends? Make a list of your priorities and look for them when you head out to the homes next month!
Learn more about the event at www.paradefm.com or on Facebook and Instagram @paradefm. No matter where your tastes lie, we invite you to explore the area’s new developments, infill communities and over 75 homes that truly offer something for everyone!
