How does building a home with KB work?

If you're thinking about buying a new home, you're probably very excited, and maybe just a little bit nervous. We know there's a lot to think about, so to help you understand our homebuilding process we’ve outlined the major steps from start to finish, and what to expect along the way.

Visiting a Community

Finding a community you're interested in and going to the sales office is the first step. During this visit, you'll meet with a KB sales counselor who will spend time learning about your unique wants and needs, so they can help you select a new home that's just right for your lifestyle and budget.

Then, you'll tour the model homes together, so you can explore every living space from the bedrooms to the kitchen. After that, you'll take a look at the available homesites — yep, you get to choose where in the community you want to live.

Once you finalize your homesite, the sales counselor will help you select a favorite floor plan and exterior style. They will also explain the different layout options available, which allow you to make structural changes (like adding a kitchen island or extra windows) before building starts.

Think of your KB sales counselor as your go-to for all home-related questions, and that includes local schools, shopping and other neighborhood tips. Plus, they can connect you with the loan experts at KBHS Home Loans® to help secure your financing. On to the next step!

Personalizing at the Design Studio

Let the fun to begin! Our Design Studio is your opportunity to get creative with amazing design choices to make your home, your own. Explore the possibilities to find everything you love — from modern appliances and cabinets to countertops, flooring and light fixtures.

We also want this experience to be easy and enjoyable, so your design consultant will be there to guide you to the best selections for your personal style and budget.

Breaking Ground

Now it's time for us to do the heavy lifting. Once we start building, you’ll see your new home come to life from the ground up. Throughout this process, your construction superintendent will be in regular contact, with updates and other timely information. You can also visit the site in person to check out your new home, so don't forget to take some pics from framing to finish.

Moving In

Before you know it, you’ll be moving in! But even after you’ve unpacked your boxes, we’ll still be there if you need us to answer any questions that might come up. And if something breaks, we’ll come back and fix it, under our 10-year limited warranty. Because we know things might happen at some point down the line, and we’ll be there for you.
