Getting Excited for the 2016 BCASWI Parade of Homes


For nearly 20 years, I have been both an active and passive participant in the activities surrounding parade time in Boise Valley. Many in the new construction industry gear up for the spring parade, as it is often viewed as the pinnacle of events in our area. It’s a great time to kick-off new communities, unveil new floor plans or display the newest trends in interior design. So by being on the marketing side of new communities and having a husband who has been fortunate to have listed many parade homes over the years – we’ve prepared for parade time in many different ways. And as each year unfolds, the bar gets set a little higher.

This year there are 39 parade homes on tour across the Boise Valley, and for the first time I’m able to preview these homes before the official opening day. I was selected as a 2016 Parade Judge! A parade committee member (a loan officer that I’ve known for a long time) unexpectedly nominated me and somehow my application made the final cut! Judging takes place next week, with the official opening day on Saturday, April 30. I’m certain that there is more than one builder who is burning the midnight oil in preparation for judging day. It’s impressive to see how much work can get accomplished by many different trade contractors within a short period of time. They make it look easy, though! Here’s a link to a listing of this year’s parade entries:
