HBA Parade of Homes was a Statistical Success & “Loved” by Visitors

With 14 homes on Parade this year there were many exciting and beautiful things to see. People came from all over to plan out home dreams and talk with HBA Parade Builders.Slide16 As you can see from the Visitor Comment Word Cloud, the HBA Parade of Homes was Beautiful, Nice, Great and Loved.

If you don’t already know, it is the 60th Anniversary of the HBA of Greater Springfield and the first Parade, back in 1954, was a single home built by a collaboration of builders. In this span of time there has never been a reliable method instituted for tracking the number of visitors, but with the new Parade Craze App we were able to track the number of visitors, how many times visitors returned to a home, what days homes received the most visitors and much more (see stats below). Even though the statistics are not 100% accurate it will provide valuable information for your HBA as well as the HBA Parade Builders.

For the HBA Parade Builders, the contact information that was gathered will likely prove to be the biggest incentive for being in the 2015 HBA Parade of Homes. This contact information will also be useful to all HBA Members through our new HBA Home Pros Info e-Newsletter where HBA Members will be supplying the content.

We would be neglectful if we did not thank the HBA Parade of Homes Prize Sponsor – Missouri Propane Education and Research Council as well as ALL THE SPECTACULAR VOLUNTEERS!!! If we left out your name below please let us know. Some volunteers went above and beyond we want to send out a special thank you to you. You know who you are.
