    Submit a home remodel or "behind the scenes", educational aspect, of building a new home with a "Hard Hat Parade Entry" (or home in-progress). The Parade Committee is excited to be able to take an exciting spin at the supply issues we're facing by allowing homeowners to visit homes that are near completion. Homeowners will be aware of which homes are "under construction" or "Hard Hat Entries". It is assumed, that the guests through these homes would be quality prospects, as they're clearly interested in not only the finished product, but the building process.
    * Homes will be far enough along that they're not a safety hazard (a few weeks shy of completion).

 

  • VIRTUAL HOME ENTRY: $1,400 (includes 15 professional photos plus an enhanced video tour (60-90 second ground & aerial video, with aerial photos- $400 value!)

Parade "Coming Soon" Listing

The "Coming Soon" listing is a new feature, launched by the Lakeshore HBA, that will offer a sneak peek at projects coming available in late 2022 and into 2023. These will be lots, builds, and/or neighborhoods and will NOT be finished or almost finished, as they will NOT be toured during the Parade. The "Coming Soon" entries/listings are an advertisement to announce your upcoming projects!

Maximize your new projects' exposure to the market by advertising your property well in advance. This approach is a fantastic way to gauge buyer interest, line up potential buyers in advance, and raise awareness in a classy teaser ad that invites them in.
Giving your potential client a sneak peek of what's to come creates increasing anticipation. The purpose is to entice and persuade potential buyers to come back and follow you and the project. This will ensure a successful launch when the time comes.

The "Coming Soon" listings will be launched during the 2022 Parade as a way to showcase to the public where new homes will be in the months following the 2022 Parade. These entries will be featured in both the Parade Official Guidebook (over 5,000 copies distributed locally) AND the website.
