Some of Central Texas’ most beautiful homes are preparing to open their doors this month in the annual three-day Tour of Homes, which will give you a chance to be a part of the ultimate open house.
From May 17-19, the Home Builders Association of Greater Austin will host a tour of more than 60 homes throughout eight key area communities. The self-guided tour gives potential homebuyers a chance to see the best custom homes in the area at their own pace. Set from Georgetown to Kyle and with prices ranging from $170,000 to $2 million, there’s something for every buyer and every budget.
The 2013 edition of the Tour of Homes features Blackhawk, Falcon Pointe, Northwoods at Avery Ranch, The Reserve at Lake Travis, Rough Hollow, Serene Hills, Sweetwater and Teravista. Each community on the tour will have special events planned as part of the tour. Participants can start at any of the sites with a wristband and tour packet, which can be purchased online or at a community on the day of the event.
Tour times are from noon to 6 p.m. May 17; from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. May 18; and from noon to 6 p.m. May 19. Wristbands purchased in advance at TourofHomesATX.com are $5 for ages 18 and older. The wristband price goes up to $10 once the tour begins.
To enhance their experience, participants can use the Official Tour of Homes Guide that will be available in the Austin American-Statesman on May 12. For those who prefer a more hands-on approach, participants can plan and personalize their weekend using the Official Tour of Homes iPhone app, available from the App Store soon.
