If you’re curious about the benefits of being the first owner of a new home or seeing the latest design trends, attend the free Fall Metro Portland New Home Tour, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 24, and Sunday, Oct. 25.

The tour showcases 36 homes built over the region in a variety of architectural styles and price ranges. There’s even a shipping container home outfitted by the Interior Design Society.

“Because people are spending so much time in their homes, many homeowners are looking to remodel their existing home or purchase a new home,” says Adrian McCarthy of the Home Builders Association of Metro Portland (HBA), which produces the event.

She says the Portland New Home Tour lets people see the latest ideas in layouts and decor, and talk to builder teams about ways to personalize a home.

New construction adheres to the latest safety regulations and building codes, including stricter energy efficient standards, say housing experts. Appliances and fixtures are new, and there is a home warranty to cover the cost of any issues, from the foundation to the roof.

Download the Portland New Home Tour app for the addresses of all of the stops on the self-guided, self-paced tour.

Here are some of the new homes open for viewing this weekend. Face masks and social distancing, as well as other safety protocols, are required to reduce the spread of the coronavirus.
