Mike Croxall: Showcase Of Homes Promises Variety Of Opportunities

Friday, October 6, 2017 - by Mike Croxall, president, Home Builders Association of Greater Chattanooga

For the first time in more than 10 years, the Home Builders Association of Greater Chattanooga will be hosting a “Showcase of Homes” in Chattanooga and throughout Hamilton County. The dates will be October 13-15 and October 20-22. The event, presented by EPB Fiber Optics, will feature 10 builders and 18 homes. Hours will be 10 a.m.-6 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and 1–6 p.m. on Sundays.

The Showcase of Homes presents an excellent opportunity for those looking to build a new home or considering remodeling an existing residence. The Showcase homes, many of which includes added upgrades and amenities, range in price from $290,000 to more than $650,000. The homes are located near Lookout Mountain, Soddy Daisy, Hixson, Southside, North Chattanooga, Ooltewah and Apison.

For those looking to buy, build or remodel an existing space, the Showcase of Homes provides a variety of options and ideas. There is no charge to enter a Showcase home and a map of the different locations can be accessed online www.hbagc.net or by downloading the Parade Craze mobile app. The mobile app allows Showcase goers easy access to directions, pictures, floor plans, amenities and more for each individual home.

Participating builders in HBAGC’s 2017 Showcase of Homes include BP Construction; Collier Construction; GreenTech Homes; GT Issa Construction; Michael’s Homes; Nu-Era Construction; Pratt Home Builders; Rowland Development Group; Trust Homes; and Waters-Holland Residential Home Builders.

Visitors to the different Showcase homes can participate in a “Magic Card” game that gives Showcase attendees a chance to win a nice prize. The “Magic Card” is similar to a Bingo card and it includes squares for all 18 home locations. Agents at the individual homes can affix a sticker on the specific home’s square and those who gather 10 or more stickers can mail or deliver the cards to HBAGC by November 1 to become eligible for a prize drawing. Prizes include a gas grill donated by Lowe’s, $250 gift card from Indian Motorcycle, gift cards to local restaurants and more.

Roy Exum: The Coach Who Said ‘No’
