Tallahassee, FL---

The Tallahassee Builders Association held its 2011 Parade of Homes over the weekend.

Hartsfield construction Inc. featured a house in this years parade of homes.

Barbie and Robby Hartsfield own the company and say the market for new homes in Tallahassee is really starting to pick up.

Barbie Hartsfield says, "Since last year to this year, three times the volume we ever imagined we would be doing. We have five houses under contract right now. Just this weekend I've spoken to three people who want this house."

The house she's talking about is entry number 16 out of 21 total houses featured in this years show.

That's about ten less homes then last year.

Most folks at the parade say, they are going to build this year because they want a more energy efficient home.

Jeremi Cummings, building an eco friendly home says, "We live currently in a traditionally structured stick frame house and we wanted something that's a little more environmentally friendly."

Barbie Hartsfield says,"Everybody's looking for green because that is the way of the time. It makes your utilities less and it's a good feeling to know your helping the earth."

A report from Tallahassee Real Estate N Data services shows homes are selling in the area at an average sale price of $180,000.

Also, home sales are expected to increase in the next few months.

The Parade Of Homes will be back for it's last weekend May 14th and 15th.

    That is because state jobs pay so bad. Tallahasse is one of the best housing markets in the state. Wonder why?
