Not well. See the horror stories of this KB Homes neighborhood and comments and reviews from KB Home owners from other communities

I have found KB Homes to build a good quality, decent home. They have numerous floor plans to choose from, as well as inventory homes in some locations ready for move in.

Their sales staff is friendly and helpful. If you feel that you are questioning their workmanship, you may want to compare some of the other builders in the area to make a solid comparison.

If you'd like suggestions on other builders as well so that you can make the comparison, please let me know and I'll be happy to assist you with information on other builders.

I personally would feel comfortable buying a KB Home.

Warm Regards,

OMG, you agents and brokers are horrible people. How can you tell people that KB Home builds good homes. Our entire community has gone through hell because of KB Home and now 14 other communities in the Tampa area alone have contacted the news with the same types of problems. See the videos and the truth over at

My experiences with builders in general is that the home is as good as the superintendant that oversees the subs. All builders have their problems and K will be no different. As with all home purchases it is sensible to have an home inspection. Builders do not like it but it is a ensible thing to do before you closes. If you have problems after closing then there will be a bumper to bumper warrany for at least the fiist 12 months. Read the contract !!

Every builder has their stregnths and weaknesses, but most are competitive and comparible. KB has a wonderful reputation in the industry and compares well against other builders within the same pricing. Hope that helps, Jan!

Based on my experience they are competitive with the other builders in their price ranges. At a certain level they all use the same subs, so it shouldn't be too surprising.
