RIO RANCHO, NEW MEXICO (Nov. 13, 2023) – Seasons at Monarch, a Richmond American Homes neighborhood at Mariposa, won five awards at the Fall 2023 Parade of Homes.

Each year the Home Builders Association of Central New Mexico (HBA) sponsors the Parade of Homes, a tour that showcases model homes throughout the Albuquerque/Rio Rancho MSA over two consecutive weekends. The Parade of Homes features both spring and fall open houses.

“We are excited to win these awards at the Parade of Homes. Our floorplans offer a variety of flexible options to meet today’s homeowner needs and Mariposa is a wonderful community for those that love the active lifestyle,” said David Newell, Richmond American Homes Division President for New Mexico. “We also provide buyers with below-market interest rates to make the value proposition even more appealing.”

Seasons at Monarch boasts a collection of ranch and two-story floor plans, including a couple with their signature attachment UltraGarage®, perfect for an RV, boat, or other big toys, and an array of attractive amenities. They include a community center, pools, fitness facilities, sports courts, and trails that lead directly into the adjacent Mariposa Preserve.

The neighborhood’s desirable location offers proximity to notable schools, local medical facilities, major freeways, and popular shopping and dining destinations.
