Am planning to go heavier into homebuilding stocks. Got one now, WHI. BZH looks to me like one of the 3 or 4 other best values. However, I do notice that they got a below average rating in the JD Power Phoenix survey. I wish they showed the point score- but they only show it for the above average ones. If they scored a 98-99, then I would figure no big deal. And, I believe I saw a few complaints about them on old posts on this board, although you always have to take those with a grain of salt.
Any additional opinions on the quality of BZH homes?
To me the strong points on BZH are an extremely low PSR of 0.11, and big revenue growth from 98 to 99.
As one of the many who have experienced the poor communication, workmanship, and a general lack of empathy from the Beazer community, I would strongly suggest you look elsewhere. As one of their customers, I have seen deadlines go before quality, homes built up on substandard slabs, inadequate patchwork to mask bigger problems and general mismanagement. One of the homes in my subdivision, which had reached frame, full plumbing and electrical, with roof shingled windows in etc, was determined to have an inadequate foundation. 4-5 weeks of manpower, cranes, etc went into dismantling this rather small (1900 sf) home in a manner in which the wood framing could potentially be reused . The house was originally framed inside of a week. Points being: It was obvious that the home should not have been built on this slab, but construction continued nonetheless
Was any money actually realized by enlisting the large amount of manpower and equipment for an extended time to " save the wood" rather than scrapping and starting over. Closing on this house will easily be pushed back two quarters.
