Parade of Homes
Each Spring and Fall, the Longview area Parade of Homes showcases the latest in home design. If you’re thinking about buying a new home, it will be worth your time to visit a Spring and/or Fall Parade of Homes. Even if you’re not looking to buy a new home, it’s always enjoyable to go and walk through at your own pace some of the area’s best new homes. When you’re ready to build, you’ll remember that house you loved or that builder you met.
The Longview area home parades are a great source of decorating ideas — after all, most of the houses are professionally furnished and decorated to reflect the latest trends. Consider these other benefits: You’ll also see first-hand the latest in architectural design, color, interior finishes and home technologies.
In addition, each Parade of Homes showcases the work of top architects, interior designers, landscapers, home automation specialists, kitchen and bath designers and manufacturers and suppliers of building products and services.
The Longview area Parade of Homes also give the public opportunity to network with the pros and gather information about products that interest them. Click here for the most updated information for the 2023 Fall Parade of Homes.
