The Home Builders Association of Greater Cincinnati selected a Warren County community for the 2017 edition of Homearama.
Rivercrest, a 132-acre community with 211 single-family home sites, will host the 54th Homerama. The development overlooks the Little Miami River in Hamilton Township.
Next year’s Homearama follows the return of the event at the Oaks of West Chester after a year's absence. In its first weekend, attendance was off a little from 2014, said Dan Dressman, executive director of the HBA of Greater Cincinnati. He said the heat likely kept a few people away.
“We’re expecting big attendance this weekend,” Dressman said.
And two of the homes in this year’s show have been sold.

As for next year’s show, four builders have already selected lots, with additional builders expected to be announced in the future. The builders that have already committed to Homearama 2017 are Clayton Douglas Homes Ltd., Wieland Builders, Hensley Custom Building Group and Somerset Custom Homes Inc.
Rivercrest, which is being developed by M/I Homes of Cincinnati LLC, is minutes from interstates 71 and 275 on Harker's Run, off of Route 22. The community has a pool and clubhouse equipped with meeting rooms, a veranda and indoor/outdoor changing rooms and restrooms. Amenities also include a stocked pond, 50 acres of green space and sidewalks with street lamps.
Rivercrest has 39 custom home lots and 172 M/I Homes of Cincinnati LLC sites. There are eight show sites designated in the Homearama phase of the development. There are nine additional home sites available to show builders.
The projected prices for homes in the 2017 home show are expected to be $800,000 and up. The home sites are priced between $170,000 and $200,000.
Rivercrest is located in the Kings School District.
Homearama 2017 is tentatively scheduled to take place June 10-25.
