US property developer opens new-home showroom on Decentraland

US property builder KB Home has launched a new-home community in Decentraland. The community showcases a three-dimensional welcome pavilion, coupled with three architecturally distinct model homes with interactive features to encourage exploration and engagement. 

A virtual host will greet and educate potential buyers on the benefits of building a new KB home – with the experience offering multiple ways for visitors to continue their homebuying journey in the physical world.

This virtual new-home community features advanced technology so visitors can discover some of the many design choices to personalize a KB home. On arrival, they will be prompted to explore the model homes’ exterior styles, which include contemporary, Spanish, farmhouse and craftsman architecture. When touring the interiors, visitors can select flooring, cabinets, countertop, faucets, tile and lighting to create their unique vision of home.
