A new home engages all the senses: walls smell like fresh paint, floors appear scratch-free, and recently sanded banisters feel smooth enough to slide down. Take it all in with today's Groupon: for $8, you get two tickets to the Parade of Homes and Condos. Tours take place in Appleton, Greenville, Menasha, Neenah, and other Fox Cities locales on August 13–14 and August 17–21 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekends and 5 p.m.–8 p.m. weekdays.
The Valley Home Builders Association's Parade of Homes and Condos allows prospective homeowners to freely stroll through 33 new houses and condominiums. The architecturally diverse dwellings⎯ranging from 1,515 to 7,994 square feet⎯attract visitors with impressive details such as glossy hardwood floors and dome windows that stretch up toward the ceiling. Despite never having been lived in, many showcase homes are furnished, decorated, and landscaped so visitors can clearly envision lounging on a sunny back porch or using an open-plan kitchen for cartwheel practice. As tours are not guided, promenades can occur at a leisurely pace, allowing for appreciation and inspection of the handiwork completed by builders, subcontractors, and suppliers. Guidebooks that catalog locations, floor plans, and property specifics are distributed to ensure that home-tourists can smoothly navigate from one venue to the next.
