KB Home Enters into the Virtual World

KB Home is a homebuilder firm in Los Angeles that serves 47 markets around the nation. The decision comes after the firm reported a 68% cancellation rate in its most recent quarterly financial report. The cancellation rate increased significantly from the 13% it disclosed in the fourth quarter of 2021.

Also, the firm is entering the metaverse race to capture the interest of a new generation of homebuyers by inspiring them with Metaverse. However, this is not the first business to allow people to construct virtual houses and communities in the Metaverse.

Hometopia collaborated with Metaverse and virtual real estate business EveryRealm to offer a Roblox-based metaverse house design game in October 2022. Hometopia enables people to create their perfect houses and communities in 3D virtual space.

Further, Home Depot submitted 24 Web3 trademark applications in November. Given that, the firm aspired to create a virtual home renovation business in the Metaverse.
