KB Home – The Builder

KB Home is one of the largest builders in the United States. In Las Vegas, KB Home homes are built as Energy Star Certified Homes. Energy efficient homes are built as a standard feature in all of their new home communities.

To keep prices down, many features are offered to homebuyers as upgrades. When you go to your design center appointment, you’ll love what you are shown by their KB Home sales counselor. It is common to spend 5-20% for upgrades for your new construction KB homes.

KB Home Las Vegas houses are a “great-value-for-the-money” type of builder. To offer more affordable prices, their homes feature practical, well-designed home floor plans and energy efficient building materials. When you buy a KB Home, plan to spend money on upgrades so don’t rule out more expensive houses.

Of course, when I say KB Home Las Vegas, I mean KB Home Henderson, and KB Home North Las Vegas.  However, at this time, there are no KB Homes in North Las Vegas. They have a large presence in Las Vegas and Henderson.

North Las Vegas was the fasted growing city in Nevada in 2021. They currently have no developments in cities near Las Vegas, such as Mesquite and Pahrump.

Don’t Over-Upgrade Your KB Home

To maintain a low price per square foot, you are provided with the minimun feaatures possible and you pay for design features. You’ll notice medicine cabinets are omitted, as well as many homes come standard with an 8′ ceiling.

KB Homes North Las Vegas basic kitchen no upgradesFurthermore, KB Home offers fireplaces, double sinks, vaulted or raised ceilings as options. In light of this, their philosophy is that you pay for what you want, not what they think you want.

Do not over-upgrade your KB Home. When you resell your house, your home is compared to other houses in the neighborhood. Some homebuyers buy the basic house and have sold before you.

Despite spending 10% on upgrades, you will be compared with the bare-boned neighbor.We suggest that if you are planning to spend 5-20% on upgrades, look around and compare.

Consider looking at houses that offer more features in their base price. It’s always financially advantageous to be the least expensive house on the block than the most expensive.

Viewing KB Home Models

There are around 650 floorplans built in over 150 neighborhoods in the Las Vegas Valley. KB Homes has been opening subdivisions and taking names to lottery as lots are released. Being on their list does not guarentee you a new KB Home home. We usually put you on a lottery list for every KB community in the area, then continue to see other builder’s houses.

KB model homes in Las Vegas are different in every community but can be built in other neighborhoods. If you like a certain floor plan, you may be able to build that house in a different community. KB Homes uses many of the same floorplans throughout the city with different prices depending on the vacant land costs.

The biggest issues that I have with KB Home neighborhoods is the appraisal comparisons by future buyers and construction errors. We have purchased 3 KB Homes houses as investments so we appreciate buying the least expensive house on the block.

What I found monitoring my own construction and doing weekly walk-throughs was just how sloppy quality control and upgrade verification were. Every neighborhood is different with different building superintendents. Put me on YOUR team so you have skilled eyes on your side looking out for you.
