What to Expect from a Parade of Homes
From September 8 to September 30, the Manitoba Home Builders’ Association is hosting its regular Fall Parade of Homes. This event highlights some of the best new homes throughout the Winnipeg area, and Broadview is excited to be a part of this experience. The Association has selected over 100 homes to feature in the Parade, but most people choose to only visit the types of homes they’re interested in or only the homes in their favourite communities.
What exactly happens at a Parade of Homes? You get to travel to the homes you like and check out the quality of the builders’ work. In many ways, it’s similar to touring show homes at any other time of the year, but there’s a more festive atmosphere. With the large number of people checking out the homes, you can easily avoid talking to sales reps if you’re in the “just looking” stage. There’s no pressure at all.
Check out the following Broadview homes that are part of the Fall Parade of Homes.
18 Red Sky Road
18 Red Sky Road is lovely bungalow-style home is a good example of just how fun single-storey living can be. It can be designed as a three-bedroom home or a two-bedroom home with a den, and the living area has a nice, open feel. You’ll love design details like quartz countertops and maple cabinets, but the best part is the large deck out back. Perfect for relaxing and hosting parties when the weather’s nice.

The two-storey home at 10 Red Sky Road has a stunningly modern look to the exterior, but you’ll also fall in love with the style and comfort found inside.
