The Triangle Parade of Homes is an annual, free tour that is open to the public. It is one of the best ways to view homes in the newest communities throughout the Triangle. 

More than 100 homes are on the tour, including 10 homes in Cary, four homes in Apex, three in Holly Springs and five in Fuquay-Varina. Homes are open from noon-5 p.m. daily October 15-17.

One highlight of the tour is the entry from Habitat for Humanity of Wake County. The 3-bedroom, 2-bath, 1,098-square-foot home at 121 Trimble Ave. in Cary is valued at $300,000. Special features include an open concept dining and living room; a back deck with a quiet view; ample countertop space in the kitchen; Energy Star appliances; and a sealed/conditioned crawl space.

“Habitat for Humanity of Wake County is participating in the Home Builders Association Parade of Homes to showcase the beautiful, affordable homes they build and sell to local homebuyers,” said Olivia Bowler, director of communications for Habitat Wake.

“For many people in our community, the dream of homeownership — and the wealth-building opportunities it brings — is increasingly out of reach,” she continued. “By partnering with community banks, donors and volunteers, Habitat Wake makes these homes accessible for first-time homebuyers who would otherwise not be able to afford a mortgage in our fast-growing area.” 

The Trimble Avenue home is staged with furniture from Habitat for Humanity ReStores across the Triangle. It is one of seven houses that Habitat is building in the Hannah Place neighborhood. All seven will be sold at appraised value to families who qualify for the nonprofit’s affordable mortgages.
