Two Parade Homes Sell Before the Parade Opens

DENVER, Colo. – August 9, 2010 – The Home Builders Association of Metro Denver (HBA) today announced that two of the homes entered into the 2010 Denver Parade of Homes www.ParadeofHomesDenver.com have sold before the Parade opens this Saturday, August 14.

One of the homes built by Celebrity Custom Homes at 4873 Raintree Drive in the Pradera community of Parker sold to out-of-state buyers.  The purchase price is undisclosed.  Celebrity’s home was listed at $1,725,000 and was entered as one of eight “Dream Homes” in the 2010 Parade.  This home will not be open for viewing.

Another Parade home sold almost immediately after it was entered into the Parade.  Built by D. R. Horton and located at 5202 Rialto Drive in Pradera, this home was listed at $601,000.  The purchase price has not been disclosed.

Dan Verdoorn, president of Celebrity Custom Homes, said, “The buyers knew that it was a Parade of Homes’ Dream Home and that helped solidify their purchase decision.  They were looking for a special home and liked the overall ‘wow’ of this house.”

Verdoorn said the home was on the market for two weeks.  The Tuscan-style home has open-space views, extensive outdoor living spaces including an outdoor kitchen, multiple decks and large back patio with fireplace. The home also has a gourmet kitchen with commercial-grade appliances and a finished basement with a fireplace and wet bar.

Celebrity Custom Homes has three other homes in the Parade.  One is a Dream Home in Lone Tree and listed at $1,350,000.  Another home in Lone Tree is for sale at $1,442,000.  The third home is in Pradera and it is listed at $1,260,000.  All will be open for viewing during the Parade.

After D.R. Horton’s home sold, the company immediately entered a substitute home located at 5000 Sedona Circle in Pradera.  It is listed in the Parade for $479,900 and will be open.  In addition to the Pradera home, D. R. Horton has two more homes in the Parade located in Arvada and Frederick.
