Look for 30 brand new homes, open in 27 neighborhoods across 3 Northwest Indiana counties, where 17 of the area’s top builders look forward to meeting you this weekend.

Whether you’re currently contemplating the purchase of a first home or next home, are looking forward to building the home of you dreams soon or simply enjoy seeing what’s new in home design, it’s an ideal time to get out there and see what’s available right now.

The great selection of homes featured in the this year’s Fall Home Tour presented by The Times includes a range of price points located in both maintenance-free and traditional neighborhoods so there’s truly something for everyone. It’s also a great opportunity to see the long and varied list of new-home features and benefits firsthand.

Starting with greater energy efficiency and lower operating costs, a house built to the latest codes, full of brand-new appliances and the latest building products and technologies, offers improved safety and convenience with warranties on products and workmanship; larger, more open rooms; flexible spaces with built-in storage solutions; the opportunity for customization when it comes to colors, finishes and floor plans; less maintenance and fewer repairs including no need to renovate or remodel and far fewer unknowns as far as damage or maintenance concerns.

With new construction you can move in, unpack your boxes and relax. Check out all these great locations for your next home:
