I love to provide valuable information to my buyers and sellers, and something equally as important to me, is providing valuable information to those I have yet to meet. Today I was playing around in my “Google Search Console”. One thing that popped up that users had googled that led them to my page was the phrase “does kb homes pay closing costs”. And while I know the thought of closing costs, and saving up the money to cover those expenses weighs heavily on the shoulders of buyers and potential buyers, this new found fact got me thinking I should put together a new post that educates users (of Google), as well as potential buyers, which local builders help their buyers with closing costs. (Please note, that in order to receive closing cost assistance from the builder, you must use their preferred lender for the transaction.)
And the first builder that comes to mind is LGI Homes.
1. LGI HOMES
LGI Homes is famous for helping renters become buyers. But they are building their homes with everyone in mind. I love that about them. They truly care about providing value that buyers can afford. They offer homes ranging from $166k – $356k.
Also to note, is that they don’t just help with closing costs, but they have lenders that cater towards $0 down payments, and they love working with real estate agents. So if you would like to explore one of the fabulous LGI Homes neighborhoods, please let me help set up these showings! Although the sales agents are very trustworthy, it is always imperative to have someone 100% in your court (not working for the man on the other side of the table), working for you!
Below you can find the neighborhoods that are actively selling new construction constructed by LGI Homes, broken down by city.

The inventory home special ended on the 14th, but the to-be-built home special remains in tact for the rest of the year. These amazing specials leads me to believe they would still be willing to do some heavy negotiating. Here are 25 of my favorite homes built by M/I that are under $450k.
3. Gehan Homes
Another builder offering to cover closing costs is Gehan Homes! You can “register” for their offer here, https://www.gehanhomes.com/promos-events/consumer-offers/houston. What is most amazing about this special, is that they will also pay the closing costs on a home you custom design (vs an inventory home). Here are 25 of my favorite homes they currently have on the market :: https://www.har.com/s/05F100214b858F.
Here is a list of some of the most popular neighborhoods Gehan Homes is constructing within.
Falls at Green Meadows and Katy Trails (in Katy, TX)
Harmony Village (in Spring, TX)
Harpers Preserve and Ladera Creek (in Conroe)
Inverness Estates (in Tomball)
Lakes of Bella Terra (in Richmond)
The Woodlands Hills (just on the outskirts of Conroe in Willis)

4. Ashton Woods
Ashton Woods is offering a great special fo the remainder of 2018: $1 contract deposit and up to $7,500 toward closing costs on all inventory homes. You can learn more about this amazing opportunity, and see a list of their inventory homes here on their website, http://www2.ashtonwoods.com/houston/dollar-down. And I am personally offering another $1000 towards closing costs. If you are reading this after the new year, and are interested in this neighborhood, I would love to help you negotiate a substantial amount of closing cost incentives.

6. Chesmar Homes
Chesmar has five inventory townhomes left in Woodridge Forest (in Porter). They are all priced at $226,000 and Chesmar is offering $8,000 in closing cost assistance.
7. Century Communities, Westin Homes, KB Homes, Darling Homes, Meritage Homes, K. Hovnanian Homes , Infinity Classic Homes, Colina Homes, and D.R. Horton.
These builders historically have offered decent amounts of closing costs in past transactions. I am pretty confident I could obtain a decent amount of incentives in their neighborhoods with higher levels of inventory. I will also contribute $1000 to any purchase from a home builder from above when the purchase price is over $250,000, and you mention this blog post! 🙂
