What to look for in a KB community

There's a lot to think about when it comes to finding the right home, and the community where you live is often part of that decision. For instance, you might be wondering about onsite recreational amenities, like pools and playgrounds, as well as local shopping and schools.

A short checklist can come in handy, so here's some tips to help you find the new home and community you'll love.

Will my new KB community have onsite amenities?

Life can definitely be more fun when you have access to amenities for leisure and recreation in your own backyard. Whether it's lounging poolside on sunny days or picnicking with friends, many of our new communities offer onsite amenities like clubhouses, walking trails, parks, swimming pools, playgrounds and tot lots for the kids, picnic areas, playing fields, sports courts and even dog parks!

While it does vary from one location to the next, your KB sales counselor is ready to answer any questions you may have.

We know a great location matters.

Where you live and what's around your community can make a positive difference in your day-to-day activities. That's why we do a lot of research before we break ground to make sure that the places where we build are just as appealing as the homes we build.

Shopping, dining and services.

Convenience to major grocery stores, retail centers and family-friendly restaurants often top the list for many of our customers. Life gets busy, and we realize that it's easier to run errands or pick up dinner just a short drive from home. We also try to build our new communities near medical centers, banks and other important services, so you can quickly get to the places you need to go.

Employment and business.

Everyone recognizes that there's been a dramatic shift in the way we work, but for many, living near their office or place of business is still a big deal. When planning new communities, we take into consideration proximity to employment destinations as well as major freeways, so homeowners can have a better commute.

Entertainment and outdoor recreation.

Going to the movies, taking a long hike or paddleboarding — it's obvious that everyone has their own idea of the perfect weekend. So, from coast to coast, many of our new communities are located near large public parks, miles of trails, entertainment venues, sports arenas, plus beautiful lakes and beaches.

Local school districts.

If you have children or are planning to have a family, finding a new home within a good school district is a must. You'll be happy to learn that many of our new KB communities are ideally located so your children can have the opportunity for an excellent education from kindergarten through high school graduation.

We're here to help.

Whether you're looking for a new KB home in a small town or a big city, your sales counselor is a great resource for information on community amenities and the surrounding area. Of course, the best way to experience the local neighborhood is to drive around and have fun exploring!
