Looking for The Parade of Homes? Why not Tour a Dream Home you can Actually Afford!

If you landed on this blog post, you’re probably looking for the Parade of Homes that happens throughout the Treasure Valley each Spring. You’re also probably a little bit curious as to why Idaho’s #1 Home Builder is NOT participating in The Parade of Homes…

We get asked this question every year and thought we should come clean!

A few reasons why the Parade of Homes is not for CBH: 
see below
1. Did you know we have over 400+ new homes available to tour in ten cities across Southern Idaho open 7 days a week?

CBH Homes_Furnished Home_New Homes_Boise_Idaho_New Home Construction

2. We all love to DREAM BIG. Why not tour DREAM HOMES you can afford? No need to wait all year for the Spring Parade.

CBH Homes_Furnished Home_New Homes_Boise_Idaho_New Home Construction

3. Parade of homes are builders “show homes” with upgrades galore. Live your dream in a home you can afford. Everything’s included with CBH – We’re an open book, no surprise upgrades here, just a dream home you can actually afford!

CBH Homes_Furnished Home_New Homes_Boise_Idaho_New Home Construction

4. Why isn’t The Parade of Homes for CBH? Parades are generally for builder’s who build a handful of custom homes each year and don’t always have homes to show – as you likely already know, this is quite the opposite of CBH Homes!

CBH Homes_Furnished Home_New Homes_Boise_Idaho_New Home Construction

Skip the parades, tour our 400+ move in ready homes TODAY (and every day!) Not sure where to start? We have a detailed list of homes in all of our Sales Center locations!

Home Maintenance Tips For Spring | CBH HOMES

The transition from Winter to Spring in Idaho can be rough. From rain, to sunshine, to snow showers, then back to sunshine, it can be a whirlwind to keep up with! While you’re waiting for the weather to calm, spring is the time to do a check up on your home to make sure everything is still performing the way it’s supposed to. Here are 10 home maintenance tips that you should be doing this spring.

CBH Homes_Spring Home Maintenance Tips_2019

1. Check Your Roof 

The first of our home maintenance tips… Check to make sure your roof is completely intact after this windy season. Your roof is what’s keeping the water OUT, I’m sure you want to keep it that way! Be sure to check for any warping or cracks and get those fixed as soon as possible!

2. Check your Gutters

While you’re up there checking the roof, might as well clear out those gutters of any debree that’s been stuck all winter. Anther tip – make sure the downspouts drain away from the foundation. Improper drainage is a no no.

3. Make sure your AC Unit is in tip top shape. 

  Watch the video below for the 4 places Brett checks to troubleshoot the air conditioner!

4. Replace your Furnace Filter

This relates directly to step #3. Did you know you’re supposed to change your furnace filter EVERY 60-90 days?! Home maintenance tips aren’t always hard, this one is quite easy! Be sure to add a reoccurring appointment in your calendar so you never forget!

5. Touch up on Exterior Paint

Cracked or peeling paint isn’t very apPEELING on the eyes!  Touching up a few spots here and there is an inexpensive way to protect your home from the elements, and make it look top knotch!

6. Replace Smoke Detector Batteries

While you’re in spring cleaning mode, grab a ladder and replace the smoke detector batteries. Better now than in the middle of the night! Why does it seem like they always go off at 2am? 😉

7. Check Seals Around Your Windows and Front/ Back Doors

The cold winter weather can harden and crack your caulk. Check them out and repair if necessary!

8. Check your Pop up Sprinkler Head

It’s always a good idea to adjust your pop up sprinkler heads after a long cold winter. Turn your sprinklers on and do a quick walk through to make sure they’re doing their job correctly and have the correct flow!

*TIP: Put on some shorts and flip flops you can get wet!

9. Clean your windows!

Okay, you might want to wait until AFTER spring for this one (hello rainy season). Did you know you can actually take your windows OFF? Imagine how clean you could get those bad boys…

10. Clean your sink disposal

This one might make you feel a little cringey… think of all the food and germs that go down your garbage disposal every single day. Spring maintenance doesn’t have to limit to the big things!
