Tour of Homes

Take the TOUR OF HOMES this September!

On behalf of the 850+ members of the Building Industry Association of Central South Carolina, we are pleased to present the 2021 TOUR OF HOMES. Offering three featured communities and 27 new homes for your inspection; this truly is “Columbia’s Largest Open House of New Homes”. The TOUR OF HOMES gives you the opportunity to learn about the best communities, as well as new homes in every price range.
 
Columbia’s finest builders and developers will show you their innovative ideas, special design features, dynamic floor plans and quality craftsmanship. While some model homes are decorated and furnished and open for you to visit, many of the homes are not. If you are interested in seeing a finished or furnished model, please contact the real estate agent and they will be happy to assist you.

We would like to thank the 9 participating builders and developers who have made this 2021 TOUR OF HOMES such a success! As you tour their lovely neighborhoods and homes, remember that a new home is still one of the most sound investments you can make. Interest rates are still significantly lower than at any other time in the last 25 years, so now is one of the best times to buy a new home. Perhaps one of the homes or communities you see will be the one that is perfect for your family.

The in-person portion consists of houses located throughout Kershaw, Richland, Lexington and Sumter Counties. With homes in all price ranges, the TOUR is the perfect source for anyone planning to buy a new home now or in the future — or for seeing the newest trends in the building industry (architecture and interior design). Most of these homes will be open Saturday and Sunday, September 11-12, 18-19, 25-26 —  from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays and from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays. Some are available for viewing by appointment only (see each listing for details).
 
STAYING SAFE AND HEALTHY WHILE ON THE TOUR
We are committed to keeping attendees and participants on the TOUR OF HOMES safe and healthy. Each builder of homes on the TOUR OF HOMES are responsible for specific COVID-19 precautionary protocols at their properties. Note that builders may have varying protocols that could include requiring appointments to visit a home in person. Please check the home listing and see the TOUR OF HOMES website prior to visiting model homes to understand any visiting restrictions.

In addition to these protocols, we ask that you:
• Stay home if you are potentially sick.
• Maintain social distancing while waiting to enter the home, talking to those working in the home, and while touring the home. This may require waiting to enter a hallway or a room until the group ahead of you has left the area.
• Refrain from touching surfaces and handles in the home.2021 TOUR OF HOMES planbook cover
