Boise's Parade of Homes
The Parade of Home Boise Idaho annually show casts benefits both the builder and those interested in purchasing a home. For a builder, it allows them to show off their new improvements. For the buyer, they get an idea of the housing market and what to look for in a high-quality home including the latest fashions and expectations in colors, flooring, and appliances.
In Boise, there are two Parade of Homes a year, which last about three weeks. This includes the spring parade of homes, generally starting at the end of April, and a fall parade of homes, normally beginning of October. The association in charge of Boise’s parade of homes has a model of keeping the “Tradition of Building Excellence.” They have the responsibility of judging the homes, assigning awards, publicizing the event, interacting with realtors, and banquet communities.
The Parade of Homes in Boise started with humble beginnings in 1956, where ten modernistic homes were featured in the newest development at the time -- the Highlands. The homes were advertised with their architecture and floor plans in local magazines, and they were promoted as all-electric homes with built-ins. They included new modern amenities that had not been seen commonly before, including kitchens that were both compacted and color-coordinated. The Highlands played a significant role in further developing Boise’s North End in the growth after WWII.
Today, the Boise Highlands have curved streets with rolled curbs and no sidewalks. It has some contractor-built homes and architect designs, and in the Upper Highlands, properties have beautiful view looking out from the homes.
The Parade of Homes Boise Idaho has today is significantly larger than its humble beginnings. In 2014, there were forty homes displayed in the spring Parade. Some of the most prominent builders include: Biltmore, Brighton Homes, Coleman Homes, Hubble Homes, Northern Construction, Paradigm Construction Company, Shadow Mountain Homes, Solitude Homes, Stacy Construction Inc., Syringa Construction, and Ted Mason.
Neighborhoods are proud to show off some of the new homes they have to offer. With dozens of subdivisions in Boise and surrounding areas that were in the Parade of Homes, the Boise Metropolitan area shows off its growing community.
Avimor is a residential subdivision in the Boise Foothills, West of Downtown Boise and about 8 miles north of Eagle, Idaho. Because of its location, residents of Avimor enjoy 23,000 acres in their back yard with access to trails for hiking, biking, horseback riding, and more.
Along with the outdoor conveniences, Avior has a new community center with modern amenities including a heated swimming pool, an exercise room, a library annex, expandable meeting rooms, Caterer’s Staging Kitchen, and patio and picnic areas. Avimor is almost a small town rather than just a neighborhood, which is one of the values of this subdivision. Residents here have a chance for quality time and a healthy, active lifestyle.
Types of Floor Plans
Besides the strategic location in a secluded area, Avior boasts of its high quality homes. There are four main types of floor plans:
Estates Series have properties with ¼ of an acre or more, with homes that are from 2,075 to 3,700 square feet. These larger lots feature one or two level homes with a large garage capacity.
The Homestead Series homes will have approximately 1/4th an acre and a structure of 1,724 to 2,719 square feet. The lots come in a variety of styles and sizes, but many of them will be right next to open spaces and trails within walking distance. Homes from the Homestead Series will have flexible house plans.
Foothill Series properties have lots of about ⅙ to ¼ an acre with a 2,217 to 2,884 square feet sized home. Features on this section of homes include walk-out basements, panoramic views, and perhaps a view on the hillside, overlooking the community.
A Courtyard Series homes will offer approximately ⅛ an acre for a lot size and a structure that is 1,028 to 1,900 square feet. This requires a low-maintenance lifestyle, perfect for those who travel. Furthermore, Courtyard Series homes are near the Village center, which is a convenient location. Homes in this style have fairly flexible floor plans.
