A Note to Builder Participants,
The 2022 Flagler Parade of Homes Staff is working hard to ensure the 28th Annual Parade of Homes features our local builders beautiful work for the public to view, enjoy and most importantly, BUY! Keeping the spirit of the Parade in mind, we are constantly looking for even better ways to promote Parade homes and to provide Parade Builders with more value as you will see with some of our changes this year.
This year, you will notice the application has been updated and put online in an effort to streamline communication and make the process easier for builders.
Don’t have a model or spec home? No worries! Any Single Family, Multi-Family, Custom Home or Community Entry may be entered within the virtual entry category. Traffic will be driven to your Website and Sales Center, or direct phone. The purpose of this entry is for builders and developers to take full advantage of the Flagler HBA Parade of Homes Marketing opportunity during a period when no specs or models are available for public view. Virtual Entry criteria will consist of Elevation Photos or Renderings and floor plans, just like a normal entry. You may also include Photos and Matterport Virtual Tours if this is a plan you have built before, or Digital Representation of a to be built custom home. Links to Electronic visuals will be displayed with your entry online. These will not be open to the public. Non entries cannot be open in same community as virtual entry.
*If you need a photographer, please contact the HBA office to be connected with our exclusive Parade of Homes Photographer*
This year we have also added a Custom Project Category. Renovation entries are given the same marketing opportunities and appearance in the magazine, app and website. They will not be open to the public. Before and after photos are required to be posted on the entrants’ website for the public to see. A photo of the final remodel is required as the official entry photo unless you use a rendering. The project must be no older than 3 years from start date of the Parade. These projects will have the option to be judged virtually within the category. The Parade Committee will decide whether to accept or decline remodel entries based on the scope of work and budget. All entry rules apply.
