How do online tools make homebuying easier?
From ordering lunch to buying a car, the world is literally at our fingertips, so why shouldn’t buying a new home? Our online tools offer the convenience to explore floor plans and view design options without leaving the comfort of your own home. Check out how we’re elevating the virtual homebuying experience.
As the world continues to shift and change, so does the homebuying process. We’ve reimagined how touring and buying a home works with a variety of features that make the process easier than ever.
Tools to virtually explore a home
Finding the right home for you can now be done virtually, thanks to a variety of online tools on our site. We've outlined a few of them here:
Virtual Home Tours
This allows you to tour a home remotely, from the comfort of yours. Virtually "walk" through different floor plans, room by room, to help get an idea of how each layout looks once built. Want to measure the dimensions as you tour? Measurement mode lets you measure any window, wall, or door so you can get an exact idea of how things are spaced out.
Interactive Floor Plans
View and compare home layouts to see which ones you prefer. You can even arrange furnitureto help you envision your future living space.
Online Photo Galleries
Here you'll find photos of our homes to give you an idea of how they come to life. Keep in mind that your home will ultimately be designed uniquely for you, but flipping through photos of homes can help you get ideas and inspiration.
Online Design Studio
The Design Studio is where you get to select options and add-ons to really make your home your own. Select locations offer an online Design Checklist that lets you explore everything from flooring and cabinets, to appliances and light fixtures.
As you navigate these online tools, it may be helpful to create a MyKB profile. Here, you can compare floor plans, share them with friends and family, and save your top communities and homes for later reference.
Live video or private in-person tours
Your sales counselor will help you schedule a one-on-one visit with them. If you prefer to meet remotely, your sales counselor can guide you through a live video tour of a home. Otherwise you can choose to do a private in-person tour with your sales counselor, which can be done either by appointment or by walking into one of our sales offices.
If you’d like to see a move-in ready home in person but prefer to tour it alone, we offer self-guided walk-throughs. With this option, bluetooth enabled locks allow contactless entry to move in ready homes without the guidance of a sales counselor.
Seal the deal virtually
Now comes the final and most exciting step: closing on your home. Your sales counselor will work with you to sign the contract electronically or in person, whichever you feel most comfortable with.
While this can sometimes be an overwhelming process, don’t forget that this is also one of the most exciting experiences of your life. This is your home in the making—your chance to imagine your future coming to life. So relax in knowing you have a dedicated team and a trusted partner along the way, and remember to have fun.
