Homearama Starting To Take Shape

By Staff Writer

When you turn into the Watersong subdivision off Five Mile Line Road, you immediately notice that there are some nice homes that line the street. As you continue down the winding road, you see the five featured models under construction. Custom homes with everything state-of-the-art.

The 2010 Homearama event is officially under construction and crews are working diligently to get these homes finished for the grand opening. This year’s event is scheduled for August 14th – 22nd in Penfield at Watersong.

Homearama is a product of the Rochester Home Builders Association and has been running for over 30 years in this area. The original intent of Homearama was to show people practical applications and products available to them in new homes, like the newest advancements in siding, roofing and architectural changes. As the times changes, Homearama has adapted to lifestyle changes.

Rick Herman, Executive Vice President of the RHBA is excited about this year’s event. “People come to see the newest trends in home building and home decorating. In addition to the advancements on the inside, we have a number of homes developing the outside with a big yards with patios, pools and extensive landscaping.” The idea of staycations are prevalent in these models.

This year’s event is a little different from year’s past in that Homearama 2010 will be only 9 days compared to 3 weeks from last year. “We’re downscaling from previous years,” Herman said, “Attendance records show that a shorter event make for better participation. We have a variety of activities and events for people to participate and enjoy each day like bands, cooking classes, a classic car show and clowns for the kids.”

The Watersong subdivision is a product of Antetomaso Homes and is currently developing phase III. “There were a lot of reasons why we chose Watersong for this years Homearama,” said Herman, “Penfield is one of the hotter towns as far as new home construction and price point. Plus it is easily accessible from Rt 104 and offers a lot of parking for patrons.”  Antetomaso Homes is proud to host Homearama 2010. “we are happy to show off our community to the general public,” Said Ralph Antetomaso, “Watersong was designed with many quality features in a new community including sidewalks on both side of the street, street lights and open space.”

Re/Max Plus broker, John Antetomaso “We are thrilled to be hosting Homearama this year. It allows us to show the vision we have planned for the Watersong community and the neighbors are thrilled to be part of it.”

Ticket prices have not been announced yet for the event, but will be available at the door. The Rochester Home Builders Association will have coupons and information by the end of June.
