You’ll see just about every style of new home imaginable, in seven localities throughout the Greater Richmond area, with sale prices ranging from the low $200s to over $1.2 million. This is an exceptional opportunity to see innovative ideas, spectacular design features and floor plans, and master craftsmanship – all for free.
