Hi We are thinking about purchasing a KB home in the Sable Glen subdivision. We are from out of town and was wondering if anyone has had any experience with them in the Atlanta area or in that sub division. Your input is greatly appreciated.

Default same question

I was wondering the same thing. I recently relocated to Atlanta and am currently looking for a house. All I know is that I work north of the city in Sandy Springs and people have warned me that the traffic will be unbearable on a commute from that area.

Well, I don't know how much this matters, but when I first started home shopping in 2003 I looked over there. If I remember correctly, the subdivision is located on a secondary road down the street from Chick Fil A's headquarters...I wasn't too fond of the location. It seemed as if they dropped it right in the middle of a commercial/industrial area.

It's mid 2007 and they aren't built out yet.

I also looked on the real estate sites and I see they have over 50 listings...the most expensive being about 179K (a resale)...but KB homes is selling brand new homes in that subdivision whose starting prices range from 115-138K....for me personally that's too much of a discrepancy.

In general, KB is a low-end builder. If you see other builders putting up a 2,000 SF house for $20k, KB's 2,000 SF homes will be $160k- and it shows in the level of quality. Now, for some people who need alot of square footage but can't afford to pay alot for a home, KB is perfect, but you're getting what you pay for. They're basically the Yugo of the homebuilding industry.
