"This is a great opportunity for builders to demonstrate all the advantages of new construction and illustrate the floor plans they have available for sale.
Shannon Rocha, SSHBA executive officer
A total of 20 homes in the south and southwest suburbs will be available to walk through during the Tour Of Homes. They range in size from 1,692 to more than 8,000 square feet—with the majority of the homes falling within the 3,000- to 4,000-square-foot range. All boast the numerous advantages of new construction such as floor plans designed around today’s lifestyles, the ability to personalize interior finishes and features, energy efficiency, and lower maintenance since everything is brand-new.
The scattered site tour will showcase homes that either are for sale or represent designs available to be built from each builder. Prices range from the $300,000s to more than $1 million, with the average price in the $500,000s.
