19th Annual Outer Banks Parade of Homes runs October 6-9
What could be better than a few fabulous fall days on the Outer Banks with absolutely nothing to do? How about spending October 6 – 9 on the Outer Banks with the option of touring 18 newly constructed coastal homes on your own timetable, giving you something to do when you want to do it? This year’s homes are scattered from Corolla on the north beach to south Nags Head, a more compact route than in recent years. Our home selections feature new designs and many incorporate new technologies and best building practices. The furnishings and the finishing touches provide the “oohs and aahs” within the homes and the relative calm pace of the off season and gorgeous fall weather give us the same feeling outdoors.
The participating builders and associate members of the Outer Banks Home Builders Association hope you will join us for this 19th Annual Parade. And our tour is your tour – to be taken on your own timetable Thursday, October 6 through Sunday, October 9. All Parade homes are open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday. These homes are diverse in form and function but each is a unique representation of life at the beach.
For four days you can personally experience homes that qualify as year-round starter homes to those with all of the comforts and amenities of a five-star resort! Live here, visit here, collect rents from those who do - whatever your need, one of these 18 homes is sure to fill that need! In many cases, the “bells and whistles” mindset has been transformed to an emphasis on efficiency and functionality – “less is more.” However, almost all new vacation homes still feature elevators, media rooms, home theaters, game rooms, and pools and spas.
Our participating builder members, their staff members and vendors will be in the homes until 6 p.m. each day except on Sunday, when the 2011 Parade wraps up at 3 p.m. Your $10.00 ticket may be purchased in advance by mail, at any of the homes or at select ticket outlets. Your ticket is valid for all four days of the event and ticket proceeds will go to support the Outer Banks Food Pantry. Just after Labor Day, you will be able to preview the entire Parade at your convenience on our website www.obhomebuilders.org or you may call the Outer Banks Home Builders Association at 252-449-8232 for more information.
