SMC Neighborhoods on Parade: House Hunt 2020
SMC Neighborhoods on Parade: House Hunt
For just $10, see some of the area’s finest new homes and enter to win cash prizes up to $200! The SMC's Neighborhoods on Parade Bus Tour has been rebranded for 2020 as the Neighborhoods on Parade: House Hunt. This year, you can choose whether you’d like to tour one of two routes in person or online. Each route features nine homes across New Hanover, Brunswick, and Pender Counties
How to Tour and WIN!
If touring in person, you will be responsible for your own transportation. Due to social distancing measures and gathering limits, we are unable to charter buses as usual. Instead, homes on each route will be open for a certain window of time (half will be open from 8am to 12pm, half will be open from 1pm to 5pm) on Thursday, November 5th. You will have a punch card for the route you’ve chosen. If you visit all of the houses on the route and have the punch card filled by 5pm, you will be entered to win the prizes for that route. Some builders may also choose to do their own giveaways or serve refreshments at their specific homes. Since you will be driving, this option will take most of the day, just as the traditional bus tour would be an all-day event. *Please note that we are asking all in-person attendees to wear masks inside homes when they are not eating or drinking. Hand sanitizer and disposable masks will also be provided in each home. Learn more about safety measures WCFHBA is implementing here.
If touring online, you will receive a link at 8am on Thursday, November 5th for whichever route you’ve chosen. The link will lead to a virtual scavenger hunt. In the game, you will watch video or Matterport tours of each home on that route. Pay close attention to the tours and then answer the question about the home that follows. In between home tours will be links to the sponsor’s website, where you will search for the answer to a question about the company. After completing the entire route and finding all the answers, you can enter to win the prizes for that route. Some builders may also choose to do their own giveaways within the game on their specific homes, which would be linked along with their tours. This virtual option should take 45 minutes or less to complete.
Guaranteed giveaways for each route include:
-$200 cash (one winner)
-$100 cash (two winners)
-$50 cash (three winners)
-$25 cash (four winners)
