Utah Real Estate Podcast

25-07-2022 • 54 mins

The Utah Real Estate Podcast is thrilled to present a mini-series about the Salt Lake Parade of Homes. Listeners will be able to peek behind the curtain and hear from the builders how their floorplans came to life.

To kick off this mini-series, we have the Director of the Parade of Homes, Lindie Davis, and the Executive Officer of the Salt Lake Home Builders Association, Jaren Davis. They will be sharing with us about last year's parade and what makes 2022 unlike any other in the past, from a custom skatepark house to a downtown penthouse.

Witnessing the Parade’s Growing Success

Last year was the Salt Lake Parade of Homes' most successful parade in 75 years, thanks to Lindie. She increased awareness through social media and collaborated with Utah's top influencers. She also single-handedly doubled the parade's numbers by going door-to-door, informing owners of the benefit of having their homes in the parade. She is, in Jaren's words, "a rare talent."

This year, Lindie wanted to see people bring their unique designs to the parade. For Lindie, Jumping into the organization was daunting and tiring, but it has been gratifying and rewarding to see the parade come together in August.

Advocating for the Community

The Salt Lake Parade of Homes has a group of volunteers who meet monthly to prepare for the parade. To be featured in the parade, you must be a member of the association. Applications can be submitted at the end of August, which the committee of volunteers will look over and accept.

The Salt Lake Parade of Homes committee prides itself on being craftsmen who care about the community. Their volunteers are "the best of the best" and are serious about being an association that advocates opportunities in housing. Associations like theirs help keep housing prices down and always eye what's best for the community.

Improving Living Conditions Everywhere

The Salt Lake Parade of Homes was the first of its kind and is still a great way to promote the industry. The parade is open from Jul 29 to Aug 13, 2022. Houses are available to tour Tues-Sat from 12 pm-9 pm. According to Jaren and Lindie, it's a welcoming environment, as the builders and tradespeople on site are happy to talk about their work. The Salt Lake Parade of Homes owes much to its sponsors, such as Mountain America Credit Union and the Salt Lake Board of Realtors, who help make the parade a reality every year.
