Parade of Homes
Come see what we’re building for you! The Fredericksburg Area Builders Association is proud to host the 2018 Parade of Homes featuring 32 homes built (and remodeled) by some of the area’s finest builders. Presented by Cornerstone Sponsors, Assurance Financial and Carter Lumber, this year’s open house event will run for two weekends —October 6/7 & October 13/14 — and most of the houses will be open with builder representatives on-site from 10 am – 4 pm. This two weekend event is free and open to the public. We welcome you to bring the whole family out to find your dream home or to find the right builder who will build it for you.
This year’s Parade of Homes includes lakefront luxury to age restricted lifestyle homes and everything in between. Our Fredericksburg region is unique in that we are truly the crossroads for many municipalities. The homes you will visit this year are located throughout most of our region including Spotsylvania County, King George County, Fredericksburg City, Stafford County, and Orange County. Whether you are looking to upsize or downsize, build your first home or your retirement dream, we have a house in this year’s Parade of Homes that will meet your needs and budget. Are you looking for relaxing lakeside living, or are you looking for an on the go lifestyle? Our builders are ready to build your dream house and truly make it your own.
Building on last year, our featured remodeler this year is Steady Homes & Remodeling. Their home renovation is open to view by appointment only, but there are photos of the project on our Parade of Homes website (www.FredParade.com), and feel free to set up an appointment to go see this gorgeous space. If a new home isn’t in your plans for the future, maybe a remodel
project can provide you with the updates to make your current house your dream home.
To assist you in planning your two-weekend tour of our beautiful and diverse entries, visit our website, www.FredParade.com.
The website has photos, 3D virtual and video tours, and in depth descriptions of the featured homes.
