Parade of HomesSM, Parade of Homes Remodelers Showcase® and Artisan Home Tour by Parade of Homes®
Our premier brand includes home tours and a comprehensive year-round website (ParadeofHomes.org), helping our builder and remodeler members reach over 200,000 prospective buyers every year. Well known and highly respected (93% of phone survey respondents have a positive impression of our brand), we bring real leads to our members while showcasing the benefits of new and newly remodeled homes to a broad swath of future buyers.
MN Green Path
This customized, realistic approach to building energy efficient and sustainable homes was designed to meet the market where it is today. Beginning with independent energy testing to help homebuyers understand the expected energy use of their home, the program also provides high-level green building certification. Already we’ve awarded more than 5,000 MN Green Path Home Performance Reports to homes across the region.
Modern, Comprehensive Advocacy Program
Advocating for the home building and remodeling industries is a core function of our association. From our recently created Home Builder Advocate Network to our Housing First super PAC, and our successful Builder Day at the Capitol, we work hard to elect housing industry champions to the legislature. We don’t stop there though. We fight to keep housing affordable and our industry healthy. The recent court decision to overturn the indoor fire sprinkler mandate is an example of BATC’s successes in this arena.
Bringing Builders, Remodelers and their Trade Partners Together
Sharing best practices with peers, connecting with new vendors and suppliers, and discovering the latest products and services are all part of the community that is BATC.
