Click To View Answers
How to Answer
Since the primary focus of KB Home is on new home builds, it's best that you come to your interview with an understanding of the differences and advantages of building a new home versus purchasing an older home.

Some of these advantages include:

- Clients can customize the home
- Less competition and bidding wars, so you never overpay
- You have a fresh, clean start rather than having to do renovations
- Your home is more likely to be modern and up to date
- A new home will be more energy efficient since it's made with newer materials

Discuss with the interviewer what you believe to be the advantages; showing that you are prepared to overcome any client objections.

Question 3 of 30
What is your approach to ensuring that a client reads and understands all of the details in their home-buyer contract?

How to Answer
Home-buyer contracts are long, and they cover every nitty-gritty detail you could imagine. They may be yawn-worthy, but they sure are necessary!

The last thing KB Home would want is for a client to back out of a sale because they felt nervous over the small print. Discuss with the interviewer what you do to make sure that your clients are comfortable before signing on the dotted line.

Question 4 of 30
Competition in the home building realm is fierce. In your opinion, what sets KB Home apart from our local competitors?

How to Answer
The hiring authority needs to see that you have done your homework when it comes to the competitive landscape of home building in your region. Take a look at the KB Home website, look for times they have been in the news or won any awards for exceptional work. Perhaps they stand out by longevity, how much they give back to the community or the number of 5-star reviews present online.

Question 5 of 30
How many homes do you think we build and sell every year? Tell me about the volume you are accustomed to managing.
Click To View Answers
How to Answer
You should be able to find the answer to this on the KB Home website. If the answer is not there, it's okay to ask! Although your number may be a guesstimate, it's more important to the interviewer that you are confident in your ability to manage a large volume of work.

About Our Interview Questions

Our interview questions are created by writers, almost all of which, have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with companies, careers, or schools, in which they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We do, however, strive to match their background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.

Our careers, companies, industries, and schools may have duplicate interview questions and answers found elsewhere on our website. Specifically, our companies and our graduate school interviews. For these two, we use the industry in which we believe the company most well-represents and the graduate programs, as the basis for the interview questions and answers that generate for each company or school.

The intent of MockQuestions.com is for our users to build confidence for their job interview, by using our thousands of interview questions and answers as they practice and prepare for their interview. We believe, most of our visitors can become more likely to succeed in their job interview with hard-work and practice. We believe, the key to success is for our users to rehearse with our interview questions while using our answer examples as an idea generator for their own interview answers. We strongly want to discourage users from memorizing our answer examples. That is not the purpose of our website.
