Tour 33 Inspiring Homes During Parade of Homes

Kitchen from Buchanan Construction Parade of Homes Entry.

The Asheville Home Builders Association announces the 2017 Parade of Homes Oct. 14 – 15 and 21–22 throughout the Asheville area. This free event offers the public the unique opportunity to visit over 30 newly constructed homes that will be open for self-guided tours from 1-5 p.m. each weekend.

A long-standing tradition in the Asheville area, the annual Parade of Homes provides consumers with an array of beautiful new construction, innovative technology and the latest in building design over two weekends each October. Whether you are planning your next project, dream home or just looking to explore, the Parade of Homes offers all of this and more!

This year’s Featured Builder, Distinctive Building and Design, Inc will be showcasing their well-appointed home, located in Town Mountain Preserve. This fully furnished and decorated home just minutes from downtown Asheville is a must see alongside the other 32 homes on tour.  You also won’t want to miss the beautiful community of Sovereign Oaks, located in East Asheville combining simple living with cutting-edge technology.

Pick up a complimentary Parade of Homes magazine to help guide your tour.  Available at all of the Parade Homes and various locations in our community, this full-color magazine contains all the information you need to participate in the tour.  Each home listing includes special features, floor plans, information on the builder, and more. This must have homebuilding resource features homes that are currently under construction, renovation projects, area communities, as well as a comprehensive Buyer’s Guide of over 650 local building professionals.

Visit for additional information on each home including home photo galleries, turn by turn directions and helpful tips for finding a builder and planning your tour.
