I work with both all the time. Remember your job is to make sure your client gets what they want. All the homes are built by the same sub-contractors. Just go talk to on-sites at the community you are looking at and tell them to "sell" you on their product.

KB is doing huge projects in my area of Playa Vista. Some of their building is LEED certified, greed which is a strong motivator for buyers.

That is really an apple or oranges question. While Kaufman & Broad had problems initially, after they restructured and became KB it appears that their home quality has improved significantly. In fact many of their new homes have GREEN features and therefore reduced monthly utility bills. So I don't see a big difference between them for new construction. Lennar builds a really beautiful home, and they offer many upgrades and they are building in many communities around Austin metro.

How long is a piece of string?
Are they even building in the same neighborhood?
I don't see that often around here.
Ask around your office....that will probably get you a better answer than in a public forum.
You might also check JD Power site and also complaint websites.

This is like asking what's your favorite food - it's really based on one's individual taste. My family and I have seen many of both and we can't agree one is particularly better than the other.

Even with a builder GET an Agent first! IMHO both are good quality builders you will probably get a better deal on a KB home but Lennar is better quality IMHO.

I've sold both over the years. If you're talking about KB Homes product as delivered in Circle C, its outstanding and very competitive (Fairways Estates etc).

Lennar offers excellent value for the money in the lower price points.

And Lennar can make a nice home.
