Smile Moving to San Antonio TX....

I am thinking of moving to San Antonio, TX, and using KB Homes to build my house. I have looked on line and called and spoke with a representative about it, but I would like to recieve some feedback wether good or bad about them or they houses that they build. And some ideas on who are good builders out there. And which city is better Houston or San Antonio.

Do your research before buying a KB home there is a web site all about them.

We do not have a KB home but considered building one here. After doing a lot of research we have decided to buy an older home. I will say like the poster before said, do your research. Google the builders and San Antonio specifically. San Antonio is a great city, very family friendly, and has lots to do. Good luck with your search!

We looked into a number of builders and KB was one of them. It was my experience that the homes start out more reasonably priced but you end up having to include more upgrades and don't end up with a less expensive home in the end. It's been my experience that KB doesn't have a great reputation for building quailty homes in Texas.

Just my 2 cents worth. Good luck!

I have a friend who had KB build them a house in Houston. It didn't take long, they just moved in March. You can visit KB and take a look at all the demo houses. The house they had built is very nice and great quality (not to bad on price either). I would say they'd recommend KB based on their experience.

Bought a KB homes in Boerne, we have had no problem since our purchase in Feb-2002. Building code are much stricter in Boerne then in SA.

I am in my 2nd KB home (formerly known as Rayco). Both times I purchased the homes used, so any problems, if any, were fixed before I bought them. No problems with either home. They're not as "fancy" as the more expensive builders, but you get more space for the buck. My current house is 4-sides brick with no foundation cracks anywhere. I would say that KB homes are the "Fords" of the home market. Dependable, but not fancy (I also own a Ford and a Japanese SUV).
My advice, whoever is the builder, check every day as the builders, are just that, not craftsmen.
Good Luck!

KB Homes has a less than stellar word-of-mouth reputation based on publicized complaints by homeowners. Centex was rated first in recent customer satisfaction surveys.
