Welcome to the 27th Anniversary of Parade™ of Homes
Over the past 27 years, the Wilmington-Cape Fear Home Builders Association has annually showcased this region’s finest homes. This year’s Parade features 56 homes open for the public to view completely free of charge. These featured homes boast the latest building trends, materials and products our builder and associate members’ collaboration bring to the marketplace.
The Parade of Homes™ is sponsored by the Wilmington-Cape Fear Home Builders Association, the largest trade association east of I-95, which includes 900 member-firms employing 9,500 individuals in southeastern North Carolina. Builders make up the heart of our association, but our membership also includes companies affiliated with the building industry, such as plumbers, closing attorneys, bankers, real estate brokers, engineers, interior designers, public relations firms, architects and landscapers.
In addition to the finest in new home construction, the Parade of Homes™ highlights the unique lifestyle experienced by those of us fortunate enough to call this area home. Voted “2011 Best Towns” by Outside Magazine, touting Wilmington as the “next big thing”, our pristine beaches, world-class golf courses, beautiful river, thriving arts community and outstanding shopping and dining make this region one of the most desirable places to live in the country. We are proud to feature these unique amenities through our Parade, which attracts large numbers of potential residents and second home buyers to our area each year.
We are also proud of the role residential and commercial builders play in making home ownership possible for everyone. Perhaps more than any other consumer product housing is “Made in America.” We are proud of the role we play in providing homes, jobs and taxes in our state and in our local communities.
Our members prove they are master craftsmen by using the latest products, techniques and utmost care in building their homes. The Parade of Homes provides you with a one-of-a-kind opportunity to tour new homes, see the latest technology for yourself and get building and remodeling ideas for your own home. Take your time while touring the featured homes to marvel at the exceptional workmanship. Whether you are a long-time resident or a first-time visitor of this beautiful area, our Parade has something that will catch your eye.
I want to sincerely thank the many committee members who volunteered their time planning and coordinating this year’s Parade of Homes. Thank you also to our many sponsors who every year, make this event possible.
But we especially want to thank you for celebrating the 27th Annual of our Parade of Homes™ with us. Come see what 27 years of showcasing our exceptional building has to offer and make your real estate dreams a reality! Enjoy your tour! The Dream is Back!
