Parade of Homes Toolkit


This toolkit is a resource for HBAs interested in organizing a Parade of Homes or similar home showcase in their local areas. Whether you’re planning a single-site or scattered-site parade, this non-dues revenue event will help you make important connections with your members and community.

Current and former executive officers have generously contributed their ideas, materials and insights to help make this toolkit a valuable resource for their peers. Successful strategies from the Association Excellence Awards – Best Parade or Tour of Homes winners, as well as material and ideas from the EOC’s online community, HBA Connect, can be found in the toolkit.
