Virtual means that your home is not open to the public, and PoH website visitors will “tour” your entry virtually from their personal devices when it’s convenient for them.
Your contact information will be on the page, so when visitors want to leanr more, they can reach out to you directly.
Virtual Open Houses will have a “virtual” badge on the homepage photo.
In-person is the same as it has always been, Open House-style tours with an “open house” badge. It’s your choice!
We get it. It’s hard to commit to anything this year. Whether it’s COVID uncertainty, supply or permit delays, a hot market with customers snatching up inventory before you can build it, this year’s Parade of Homes is different. There is no requirement to host an open house (unless you want to). Even if you don’t have a house to show, you can enter photos of a previously built or sold home and PoH is added marketing and promo for your business. We won’t include an address if you are only hosting “virtual” showings from an occupied home.
All you need are photos of the entry, a little information, your logo, and floor plans if you have them. If you have a virtual tour (3D or video) of the entry we will include that on the website. And every entry gets their own custom promotional/marketing video made from photos.
This is an easy one! All entries will be judged virtually this year. This means that FABA and FAAR judges will NOT be touring entries in person. Judges will use Parade of Homes website to evaluate the entries. There will still be awards for Best of Parade in each type and price category as well as “Special Recognition” awards for things the judges want to recognize for each entry.
If your model or spec home is ready and meets safety requirements, you can definitely host Open Houses. FABA will update your entry’s listing on FredParade.com as often as you have information for us to add or change. If your entry will be open to the public, the times and information will be visible at the top of your “details” and an “open house” badge will be added to the homepage photo if the entry.
