HBA event showcases new homes, builders

The Home Builders Association of Fargo-Moorhead will be hosting its Spring Parade of Homes showcasing 73 newly constructed homes by 40 HBA of F-M Builder members, during a nine-day run April 27 through May 5. Sponsored by Marvin Windows & Doors, the Parade covers two weekends for consumer convenience. Hours are noon to 5 p.m. weekends and 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. weekdays.

The event will be a scattered-site tour of homes throughout Dilworth, Fargo, Moorhead and West Fargo built with pride by HBA of F-M Builder members. Homes will cover all price ranges, including options for those age 55 and better, first-time buyers, people needing more space and those wanting to downsize. Admission will be free.

Parade of Homes magazines detailing each home entry will be available at all Hornbacher’s stores April 22 through May 5. The magazine will be a full-color, glossy publication with a half page dedicated to each home entry. Homes will be represented in full color, with 3-D renderings. Builders also have an option to include a floor plan with home listings. The magazine will include a detailed map to each Parade entry, as well as a condensed listing of all homes entered in the event. An insert with home listings will be published in The Forum April 21.

Consumers may access the Parade online at beginning April 22. The interactive website will allow consumers to browse homes, view maps and look for builders.

A free Parade application for Apple devices such as the iPhone, iPod and iPad is also available at

Each year, HBA members volunteer Parade of Homes entries priced $500,000 and higher to be “featured” homes in a fundraising effort to support their industry, association and charity. Look for more details on featured homes in the event magazine or at April 22. The cost is $5 to all featured homes. Money raised will go to Home Builders Care of Fargo-Moorhead Foundation, the HBA’s charitable foundation. It supports skill training, education and projects related to the housing industry.
