8 reasons to buy a new home instead of used.

If you’re thinking about buying a home, you’re probably picturing clean interiors, beautiful flooring, modern appliances and your personal style reflected in every room. There’s also a good chance that old carpeting, outdated design and inefficient energy systems are not on your list — so get ready to say no thanks to used and get everything you really want when you build a new KB home.

With a team to support you every step of the way and many other benefits to buying new, other opportunities just can’t compete. See for yourself why the difference is clear.

No one else has ever lived there, it’s all yours.

Imagine a home that’s never belonged to anyone else and built from the ground up just for you. Interiors are fresh and clean, the floor plan fits your specific needs and design features let your style shine. In other words, from bedroom count to appliances and flooring, you don’t have to compromise and live with someone else’s preferences — you decide.

Designed for the way you live.

We do lots of research, listen to what our customers want and respond by building better homes for a better future. Whether you're a first-time buyer just starting out or a growing family who needs more space, you can enjoy modern floor plans with large primary bedrooms, great rooms that naturally bring everyone together and indoor/outdoor living areas that maximize your space. Extra storage and generous kitchen countertops also top the list of homebuyer favorites, so we made sure that's included!

Personalized to fit your life.

Buying new gives you the opportunity to express your unique vision, plus watching your home come to life is amazing! That's why we offer our customers an extraordinary level of personalization that creates a level of value that can’t be matched with an existing house, whether it’s new or used. You get to choose the floor plan, exterior style, design features and where you live in the community.

The Design Studio is where you’ll have the most fun. With the expertise and support of a design consultant, you'll select your flooring, countertops, lighting and appliances — all the things you love.

More sustainable can be less expensive to own.

Eco-friendly initiatives can make an impactful difference for you, and the planet. Sustainable homebuilding has always been a priority for us, and KB was the first builder to make every new home ENERGY STAR® certified, which means you enjoy greater comfort and savings.

Fun fact. ENERGY STAR® certified homes achieve a 20% energy-efficiency improvement on average, when compared to homes built to current code and even more when compared to used homes built 10 or 20 years ago. Additionally, just one in 10 homes built in the U.S. over the past few years meet this rigorous standard.

Each KB home also includes water-efficient features that help conserve this precious natural resource. Our ‘whole home approach’ to energy and water efficiency means you enjoy an average annual savings of up to an estimated $1,800 on utility bills compared to typical used homes.

A new KB home is a healthier home.

Did you realize that we spend 90% of our lives inside? With so much time indoors, working, cooking and hanging out, your home environment should be as healthy as possible. That's why every new home we build is designed to be ENERGY STAR certified to deliver an indoor environment that’s better for your health and well-being.

You're also going to love this. Our homes include standard interior door hardware with antimicrobial product protection that helps reduce the spread of bacteria and germs. They also have high-performance ventilation systems that enhance your home’s environment by regularly introducing fresh outdoor air and reducing indoor air pollutants — plus, environmentally conscious products are used for our flooring, tile, paint and cabinetry.

So, chalk up a healthier KB home as one more great benefit to buying new vs. used.

A new home is often a smarter home.

With technology such an integral part of daily life, it’s no surprise that smart-home tech is a priority. Many new homes offer smart-tech features that can improve quality of life with more convenience, energy savings and security.

Customer favorites include smart thermostats that learn homeowners’ patterns, smart phone–driven appliances like ovens and washers, plus safety features like video doorbells. And who doesn’t want high-speed fiber-optic internet? For many, technology that can handle demands of home offices, school work and entertainment streaming is a must-have.

We have you covered.

Every KB home is built using the latest construction materials and methods and is up to current building codes — it’s also designed to modern safety standards. Significant problems are unlikely to happen, but if they do, they’re often covered under warranty, so you don’t have to worry about expensive repairs, hidden costs or having to spend extra money on renovations which is typical of older homes.

With our 10-year limited warranty on your new KB home, you can rest assured that customer service is just a phone call or email away should anything come up, whether it’s a question about appliances or a repair issue.

We make owning new an affordable reality.

We want you to know that your dream of homeownership is also important to us, so we build new homes with the living space you need at surprisingly affordable prices in desirable locations across the country.
