AUSTIN, Texas -- January 30, 2013

KB Home (NYSE: KBH), one of the nation’s largest and most recognized
homebuilders, today announced plans for its first new home community in Hutto.
The builder has begun construction of model homes for the new Hutto Park
community located just north of downtown Hutto. KB Home has enjoyed success in
neighboring Round Rock for many years and is now bringing its Built to Order™
homes to Hutto with the acquisition of the 105 finished homesites that will
become Hutto Park.

“This is our first project in Hutto and we’re very excited to join this
flourishing area. We think the time is right to expand our presence in the
Austin market and help create a new place for families to call home,” said Ken
Langston, president of KB Home’s Austin division.

Residents of KB Home’s Hutto Park will enjoy access to a private recreation
center with pool and picnic pavilion. The community is also just minutes from
SH 79 and SH 130, making for an easy commute to the area’s many major

The builder’s offerings will include 12 one- and two-story home designs with
up to four bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths in up to 3,125 square feet of
living space. And with KB Home’s Built to Order approach, homebuyers will get
to select their homesite and floor plan, as well as aesthetic choices like
faucets and fixtures. Select floor plans can also be customized to suit
homebuyers’ differing needs. For instance, in some plans, a loft space can be
utilized as a home office or entertainment nook, or can be converted into an
additional bedroom and bath.

All new homes at Hutto Park will also be ENERGY STAR^® certified so that they
are easier on homeowners’ pocketbooks. How much easier? Home shoppers can look
to KB Home’s Energy Performance Guide, or EPG, in all of its new homes in
Hutto Park. Similar to the miles per gallon rating or MPG sticker on cars, the
EPG provides buyers with an estimate of monthly energy costs for the home as
designed, as well as an estimate of monthly energy cost savings when compared
to a typical resale home.
