Spring brings new beginnings. It’s a season of growth and new life. As the days and grass get longer, many homeowners embark upon the tradition of spring cleaning. From boosting the curb appeal with landscaping and deck maintenance to tackling home improvement projects that were sitting on the back burner, spring often inspires people to brighten their space just in time for summer.
The 2023 Northern Colorado Home Builders Association Home & Remodeling Show is the perfect place to jumpstart your spring cleaning and get inspired. The Home Show takes place May 12-14, 2023 at The Ranch at the Larimer County Fairgrounds and Events Complex. Doors are open Friday, May 12, noon to 6 p.m., Saturday, May 13, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday, May 14, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free to all.
Thousands of Northern Coloradoans attend this exciting annual event. Dozens of local business owners will be on hand showcasing their products and services. It’s your chance to get hands-on and see the latest home and garden trends, ask the experts questions, shop for products and find the right fit for your next project. The Home Show is sponsored by American Legend Homes, Hartford Homes, the Better Business Bureau, Element Flooring and Design Center, ServPro of Fort Collins, At Home Colorado and iHeart radio stations Big 97.9, 92.9 The Bear and KBPI 107.9.
The Home & Remodeling Show also features exciting giveaways and seminars. Be one of the first attendees to enter the doors each day for an opportunity to snag a free toolkit.
Take a break from exploring the show floor and attend one of the many seminars. Show seminars will cover a wide range of topics. It’s your chance to learn about the latest trends, home security and technology, and get how-to advice from the experts.
Be sure to take the time to swing by the Home Show Yard Sale. Local businesses generously donated new and gently used tools, and other construction materials for customers to purchase at a heavily discounted rate. This is one Yard Sale you shouldn’t feel guilty about going on a shopping spree. Proceeds from the Yard Sale will benefit the NoCo HBA Foundation, which is NoCo HBA’s charitable arm. The NoCo HBA Foundation partners with NoCo HBA members and other local organizations to fund community projects across Northern Colorado and support people in need.
The Home Show is meant to be a convenient place for homeowners to find reliable help. The Home Show features professional designers, remodelers and specialty contractors. All NoCo HBA member-vendors are licensed and bonded professionals. This gives the consumer peace of mind and an added level of security knowing anyone you meet is a vetted professional held to the highest standards.
NoCo HBA is an organization of residential construction and related professionals who are dedicated to high ethical standards. Members aim to raise the profile of the building industry and help their neighbors in Northern Colorado thrive. NoCo HBA was charted in 1967. Members also belong to the Colorado Association of Home Builders and the National Association of Home Builders. NoCo HBA represents every segment of the residential building industry across 54 municipalities and eight counties including Greeley, Loveland, Windsor, Fort Collins, and the surrounding areas.
NoCo HBA is best known by the public for its annual events like the Home & Remodeling Show and Parade of Homes, which takes place in the fall. The award-winning Northern Colorado Parade of Homes is the premiere new construction open house event of the year. It’s an opportunity for people to see the latest innovations in new construction and check out new neighborhoods popping up across the area. These annual events are designed to help inspire homeowners while also showcasing the craft and commitment of industry professionals, and raising awareness of its members.
The U.S. housing market has taken NoCo HBA members and homeowners on a wild ride over the past few years. Starting in 2020, the pandemic shifted how people looked at their space. Many homeowners moved out of metropolitan areas in favor of life in a more rural setting. Remote work grew in popularity which created a demand for space in the home to be turned into offices. Meanwhile, all the changing demands, shutdowns, regulations and restrictions created a dynamic housing market. Record-low mortgage interest rates prompted a lot of people to buy and were able to get into the home of their dreams. Yet, homeowners also faced home, supply and labor shortages which slowed down new construction times, hampered remodels and created fierce competition in the housing market.
This dynamic market has started to even out. A lot of the bidding wars are over, inventory is slowing returning to the market, many of the supply shortages are over and mortgage interest rates are rising. There are mixed predictions as to what’s ahead, but experts don’t expect a housing market crash like the Great Recession of 2008.
NoCo HBA is committed to maintaining a thriving housing market in Northern Colorado. Through education and advocacy, the organization helps members and homeowners. The Home & Remodeling Show is the perfect way to spend Mother’s Day weekend and stay out of the rain.
