I'm not sure if there quality has improved but one would think that Martha wouldn't take this on if it hadn't. Or, would she?

More specifically I haven't heard of any complaints on KB in a long while. Have you checked to see if there is a blog from other homeowner's?

You mean the ones who remain? I don't doubt there are some people who love their homes. But as another poster mentioned, there are plenty enough who have moved away due to various problems. Airport noise was a big problem for me when I visited the neighborhood. I also didn't like the majority of the lots for the price. And while I know the housing market is down in general, there is a reason KB has drastically dropped prices and they were doing so BEFORE many other neighborhoods needed to.

I hate to sound like I am trashing the neighborhood, it is what it is, but it's not made of gold because Martha Stewart's name is on it. Especially when many of the surrounding roads are two lanes - not so great for rush hour commutes! For what it is worth, I really did try to like Twin Lakes.... we spent more, got a lot older, but like the neighborhood we ended up in much better than I think we'd have liked Twin Lakes.

What kind of a lost pop culture loving person would be attracted to a cheesy hood in the middle of no where named after Martha Stewart? What a bunch of smoke and mirrors or windowdressing. I cannot imagine calling my family or friends saying"We are so happy living in this Martha Stewart themed fantasyland that used to be a cow pasture.

i doubt the twin lakers have shrines to martha in their homes. the price issue is also in direct correlation with KB taking away standard features. the whole built to order idea. the price has gone down because they have stripped away granite and irrigation systems as standard in the base price (along with other things) and made them available as upgrades. its KB's new marketing approach to have more affordable starting price points.
