Best and brightest of local home building and renovation ready for latest showcase

By: Lanny McInnes

Next Saturday, Manitoba’s best homebuilders will begin a three-week showcase of 131 new show homes during the Manitoba Home Builders’ Association’s 2019 Spring Parade of Homes.

From March 2 to 24, you’ll have the chance to see the latest trends in home-building design and the newest fashions in home decorating. For those looking at buying a new home, the parade is the perfect way to see the best in today’s new-housing market.

It’s also a great way for those who may not yet be in the market to buy a new home to see what’s new and exciting in home decor, technology, finishings and fixtures. Many people who visit the parade show homes are curious to see what the hottest trends in home decorating are, or they are looking for ideas for a renovation to their existing home. Kitchens, bathrooms and the latest technology in the show homes are always a huge draw for people attending the Parade of Homes.

The Parade of Homes is also a chance to visit and explore the newest subdivisions and communities being developed in and around Winnipeg. Thirty-three communities are featured in this spring’s parade, providing those seeking homes with a glimpse at a wide variety of neighbourhood amenities and options. We also have entries that have been built in existing neighbourhoods, giving visitors a great sense of the options available for those looking at building a new home in an older part of the city.

With changing tastes and lifestyles, our builders understand that a detached single-family home may not be the right fit for everyone. That’s why new condos are also an important feature of the Parade of Homes. Condos are a very attractive option for many new homebuyers and our builders have entered 18 new condo show homes for you to visit during this spring’s parade.

Be sure to follow the MHBA on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, as we will be featuring each of the 131 show homes entered in this year’s spring parade. The MHBA will also have fun contests throughout the parade for visitors posting pictures of their favourite show homes using the hashtag #PARADEOFHOMESMB. Look for the 2019 Spring Parade of Homes magazine in your Free Press home delivery or pick up a copy at any Steinbach Credit Union.

Information on all Parade of Homes show homes is also available on the MHBA website ( Be sure to visit the new Parade of Homes page to help in your parade planning. Our MHBA builders look forward to welcoming you to their parade show homes!
