   “We currently have five new communities in the West Valley and are thrilled to be expanding our footprint and offering our personalized, new homes in these thriving sub-markets,” said Kevin McAndrews, President of KB Home Phoenix division. “Buckeye continually ranks as one of the fastest growing cities the U.S. and we are proud to be a part of that growth.”

   Construction of KB Home’s two new communities in West Phoenix is expected to begin mid-2021. The homebuilder’s current new home communities in the region include Oak Park and Marbella Park in Avondale, Encantada Estates and The Traditions at Verrado in Buckeye and The Traditions at Marbella Ranch in Glendale.

   “We appreciate the opportunity to bring together sellers and buyers, like KB Home, especially when the West Valley is experiencing such exciting growth and the market is looking to be in need of new home lots for the foreseeable future,” Semro said. “As the area continues to grow, we are expecting a second phase of the same acreage, as in the Buckeye sale, to close in a little more than a year from now.”
