A LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT
DEAR HOME BUYERS, Welcome to our annual Spring Parade of Homes. The Midland Empire Chapter of the National Association of Home Builders has always prided themselves with a high quality product and personalized service. The builders in our local chapter are on the job and available to answer their customer’s questions. Even though the market has been a challenge recently, we believe that St. Joseph and the surrounding area will always offer a quality product and stable atmosphere. We encourage the purchase of a new home when you combine comfort, efficiency and lifestyle enhancing features. As shown throughout history, a new home is still a family’s largest and most secure investment. I invite you to tour all the homes and subdivisions to find out what each one can offer in utility efficiency, low maintenance living, record low interest rates and check out the various incentives offered. On behalf of the Midland Empire HBA, I would like to thank you for joining us for this year’s Spring Parade of Homes. We hope you find a home that fits your lifestyle needs.
