JONESBORO, AR -- It's Jonesboro's first ever home show and at the end of opening weekend, things are looking good. Around one thousand people have made the tour so far, all to see what all this showcase has to offer.
"You can come out here if you're looking for decorating ideas. You can come out here if you're in the market for a house to buy or you're looking for ideas for something to build," says Linda Goad, the showcase developer.
Each builder is inside the homes to talk with the guests, along with the interior decorators, media specialists, and custom designers for the homes. And it's not just for those shopping for a new home.
"We have an older home that we need to remodel so this is really giving me some neat ideas of things I'd like to do in there, different looks," says Selena Barber, a Jonesboro resident on the home tour.
Inside or out, upstairs or down, each home featured in the showcase offers a different set of styles and designs.
"We're just getting some ideas and they all had something that we liked. They were very good," says Sue Lee, a retired Jonesboro resident.
Lee says this isn't just your average open house. It offers so much more.
"Maybe a lot of times people would be hesitant about going, this way you don't feel intimidated or pressured. You can just look. Jonesboro's a good area, so I think the homes make a difference," says Lee.
It's a home show for just about everyone, even if you just want to take a peak.
"Everything inside the home is for sale too, so you can get really good decorating ideas and find out where to get some of the things and see looks that you might like to do in your own house. It's just really something fun to do on Sunday afternoon too," says Selena Barber.
If you didn't get a chance to make it out this weekend, you still have time. Next weekend, November 10-12 will be the final days for the showcase.
Friday, November 10: 9am-6pm
Saturday, November 11: 9am-6pm
