The Spring Parade of Homes returns to Kansas City April 24-May 9 and will feature 255 homes built by 98 home builders in eight counties across the Kansas City metropolitan area. Homes will range in price from $250,000 to more than $1.6 million. In addition to single-family homes, 30 maintenance-provided communities will also be featured on the Spring Parade. Sponsored by Mike Bryant Heating & Cooling, the Parade of Homes is presented twice a year by the Home Builders Association of Greater Kansas City (KCHBA), the Parade of Homes is the second largest in the United States.
After the pandemic began, the demand for new homes with more space increased. Mudrooms and entryways are no longer an afterthought; they are now a space where mail is dropped off, groceries/delivery boxes are collected, face coverings are removed and hands are sanitized. Additionally, outdoors spaces are being transforming into functional spaces to comfortable host a socially distanced backyard cookout. These trends will certainly be featured on the Spring Parade.
Homes will be open daily from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and admission is free. Free Parade guides will be available for pickup at the KCHBA (I-435 & Holmes) and at all Parade homes during the dates of the event. Alternatively, consumers can download the mobile app to search homes, save their favorites and map their routes.
