The Annual Spring Parade of Homes kicks off this month and 2017 has even more exciting opportunities than years past. The Parade will feature 72 homes created by 56 different builders, which range in price from $150,000 to over $1 million. Some of the homes are for sale, while others showcase the builders who are ready to build custom homes in this strong economy. The event will provide inspiration for potential home buyers or those looking to remodel, as well as giving guests an opportunity to check out the craftsmanship our builders provide West Michigan. The Grand Rapids Spring Parade of Homes kicks off May 26 and continues through June 10, 2017 as well as Memorial Day from 1-9pm. Homes will be open Fridays and Saturdays from 1- 9pm and on Wednesdays from 5-9pm.
