BUILDERS: Parade of Homes Deadline is May 6

Jeff Fahrlander will again feature the St. Jude Dream Home he is building on the 2011 HBA Parade of Homes. Will you home be there?

The 58th Annual HBA of Greater Springfield Parade of Homes is fast approaching, and the deadline for entries on this year’s Parade is nearly here!

The 2011 HBA Parade of Homes will be June 17-19 and June 24-26. Homes will be open each day from 1pm to 6pm. The application deadline for the 2011 Parade is Friday, May 6, 2011.

Entering a home on the HBA Parade of Homes is a proven way to meet hundreds of potential home buyers each weekend and to demonstrate your skills, craftsmanship and professionalism as an HBA builder. More than $120,000 in media exposure (print, web, and broadcast advertising) is secured annually by the HBA of Greater Springfield to promote the Parade – resulting in hundreds to thousands of visitors per weekend to individual Parade homes. ┬áMany HBA suppliers and subcontractors offer substantial discounts on products or services that will be a part of a Parade Home – discounts that often more than pay for the cost of entering a home on the Parade.

For a list of discounts and full Parade of Homes entry packet, click here. The application packet is designed to answer most questions about the process of entering a home on the HBA Parade. If you have additional questions, or would just like more information about the Parade, contact Charlyce Ruth at the HBA office (417-881-3711).

And don’t miss your opportunity to reserve your place – by May 6 – on the HBA Parade of Homes!
