WASHINGTON, D.C. – December 11, 2014 – (RealEstateRama) — The Home Builders Association of Greater Kansas City is proud to present an Artisan Home Tour in the fall of 2015, September 12-20. This tour will showcase eleven of Kansas City’s finest custom home builders and the unique and impeccable qualities of their one-of-a-kind homes and featured products. It also will be a ticketed event for the public to purchase that will benefit charity and the proceeds will go toward the event’s charitable partner, the Ronald McDonald House Charities Kansas City. The HBA is also proud to partner with the presenting sponsor, Ferguson.
“This is a truly unique event for customers interested in the high-end custom homes,” says Dobbe Dobberstine, Dobberstine Custom Homes, Artisan Home Tour Chairperson. “We’ve been asked ‘what makes a home an Artisan Home’ and the answer is in the elevated standards of design, superior craftsmanship, and exquisite products. Custom home builders know when they are creating a structure that is transcendent for the client and the home builder.”
To help ensure the quality of the Artisan Home Tour, an architect review process will ensure the homes meet the quality levels. The architecture plans have been judged individually on their merits by one of Kansas City’s most acclaimed architects, Scott Bickford, R.S. Bickford and Company.
“The time is right for an event like this,” said Sara Corless, Executive Vice President. “People want to feel the comfort of a home that was designed and personalized just for them to fit their lifestyles. Our goal is to connect the buyers with the builder who will be their partner every step of the way.” She added, “The market also is ready because home buyers have been waiting to buy, paying off debt, and increasing their credit scores. As a result, higher-end homes are selling. ”
The elevated standards of the Artisan Home Tour don’t stop with the builders. For the housing industry and the consumers to benefit, the event is bringing together a range of areas from suppliers to event sponsors like Ferguson. “We look forward to working together once more to present another quality HBA event to Kansas City,” said Corless.
The eleven homes will be scattered throughout the Kansas City Metropolitan area and tickets to tour all eleven homes will be available online for $25 or at the door for $30 with individual homes available for tour for $10 each.
