What’s in it for me? Why do homeowners have their homes on the tour?

Homeowners have found the tour to be a very rewarding and enjoyable experience. Many have met neighbors or other home enthusiasts and gained useful ideas as a result of having visited homes on the tour and want to “give back.” By promoting their neighborhoods and highlighting the quality of city living, owners help strengthen their neighborhoods and attract residents who help build and maintain healthy, vibrant communities. Homeowners who have lived through the dust and frustration of remodeling appreciate the positive comments offered by visitors. The tour provides a good incentive/deadline for completing projects whether by contractor or homeowner.
