Eagles Nest Neighborhood Spotlight

homerama eagles nest va beachMost builders these days are reluctant to construct a home without a buyer. That’s true even for Homearama, the Tidewater Builders Association’s twice yearly showcase.

Seven of the nine homes featured in the show that starts next weekend at the Eagle’s Nest development in southern Virginia Beach already have buyers.

That’s a far cry from the event held in nearby Ashville Park two and a half years ago. None of those seven homes were sold when the show started.

What is Homearama?  Homearama is a 16-day single-site display of fully furnished and fully landscaped custom showcase homes that demonstrate the latest in home construction, design, furnishings and technological innovations. It is expected to attract 100,000 visitors throughout the event.
