Next Saturday the province’s premier home builders will kick off a three week showcase of 100 new show homes during the Manitoba Home Builders’ Association’s 2022 Spring Parade of Homes.

From February 26 to March 20, people will have the chance to see the latest trends in home building design offered by Manitoba’s best new home builders. For those looking at buying a new home, this is the perfect way to see the best in today’s new housing market. Not only does this year’s event once again feature show homes in many of Winnipeg’s newest neighbourhoods, there are also great show homes for viewing in communities outside the perimeter — making the 2022 Spring Parade of Homes a truly Manitoba-wide event!

Our builder members will continue to have measures in place to make the visiting experience as safe as possible for guests and staff. Masks or face coverings are required to be worn by anyone visiting a show home, capacity will continue to be limited and all visitors will be required to answer pre-screening questions and to sanitize their hands upon entering a home. Show homes are also frequently sanitized and access to show homes is limited to ensure proper social distancing takes place.

Visitors should also be aware that all measures will be in effect for the entire Parade. While this may mean it may take a bit longer to visit your favourite show homes, these steps are being implemented to help ensure your visit is as safe as possible. Show homes are also available to visit by booking an appointment with the builder outside of the Parade hours and we encourage you to book a viewing by appointment to give yourself plenty of time to ask the show home agent questions about the home and neighbourhood.

Be sure to look for #PARADEOFHOMESMB and follow the MHBA on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook as we will be featuring each of the participating MHBA builders who together are presenting 100 show homes in this year’s Spring Parade. Look for the 2022 Spring Parade of Homes Magazine in your Free Press home delivery next Saturday. You can also pick up a copy at any Steinbach Credit Union and a digital copy is available at homebuilders.mb.ca. Visiting the MHBA website will also provide you with more details on each Parade show home and connect you with your favourite show home’s builder to schedule a private viewing.

You never know. You could just fall in love with one of the homes you see or a neighbourhood you visit and decide that a new home is right for you.
