The best part of spring in Kansas City? Aside from the (mostly) beautiful weather, the season’s arrival means it’s time for the annual Spring Parade of Homes.
This year, Prime Development is thrilled to showcase Parade entries in three communities: Prairie Brook, Prairie Point and Bluestem. The Parade is a great time to shop for a new home as you tour furnished models and get a taste of what each community has to offer in terms of homes, amenities and that all-important feature: location, location, location!
During the Spring and Fall Parades, event organizers recognize American Dream Award Winners. We’re thrilled to announce that two homes in our newest community, Bluestem, received runner-up awards: James Engle Custom Homes’ “Laurel,” a four-bedroom, 1 ½-story home located at 11313 W. 153rd St.; and Summit Custom Home’s “Bristol Ridge II,” a five-bedroom, two-story home at 11413 W. 153rd St.
The Parade continues through April 29, which means you have plenty of time to come out and explore our communities. Homes are open daily from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. The activity level during this first week of the Parade has been impressive. Debbie Sinclair, who markets Prairie Point with Mara Dona Wood, says the community has seen a high number of visitors each day as prospective homeowners are eager to tour the community’s new model row that unites four of the largest builders in Kansas City: Rodrock Homes, Summit Custom Homes, James Engle Custom Homes and Roeser Homes.
In Prairie Brook and Bluestem, the Parade response has been similar. Limited opportunities remain to purchase a single-family home in Prairie Brook, a dually focused community that also offers villa homes. And in Bluestem, Prime Development’s marketing director, Dennis Patterson, said the community saw “incredible” Parade traffic last weekend.
“Over 200 groups went through on Sunday alone,” he said.
Not only did Bluestem see a high level of activity, but one of the Parade entries sold on Sunday—James Engle’s expanded “Birch” floor plan.
If you haven’t yet visited one of our communities during this year’s Spring Parade, now’s the time to get out and explore! And even if you’ve already stopped by, you’re welcome back for a second look. To stay up-to-date on Parade-related information, follow Prime Development and Bluestem on Facebook.
