Held during several weekends back in October, the annual Parade of Homes is a chance for members of the Home Builders Association of Raleigh–Wake County and the Home Builders Association of Durham, Orange and Chatham Counties to show off their latest designs and builds across varying residential locations throughout the Triangle.
Here at Hillman Real Estate Group, we love staying up to date on the latest trends in the new construction space so we can advise our sellers on what’s new and hot in the marketplace, as well as help our buyer clients hone in on exactly what features should make their “must have” lists when starting their house hunting process.
