After 10 years of working as the director of public relations for K. Hovnanian Homes, I have hung out my own shingle.

In-House Public Relations strives to offer the insight and dedication to a client usually found only in internal PR departments. This blog will talk about public relations, communications and the industries I’m involved in, including homebuilding, real estate and public safety.

    I’m a blogger in Prince George’s County, MD: http://www.pgcblog.com

    Why does KHov keep building new homes in this County if the foreclosure rates are so high? Do they think BRAC personnel will fill the homes? What do they know, even if it’s projection knowledge, that I don’t?

      I really can’t speak for the company anymore. Homebuilders obviously have to keep building or they die. I don’t know what Khov is building there and I don’t know that market. You can certainly contact the company. I’m sure they’ll give you an interesting answer.

      You bring up an interesting dilemna for companies like K. Hovnanian. Why ARE they building homes of a certain type in a certain area? Homebuilders need to be more transparent in their dealings with the communities they serve. Assuming your question is sincere, the company should answer it in its dealings with the communities where it builds. What a builder builds is often determined by local zoning rules, even before the market. But the company should be explaining itself as part of its relationship-building efforts in a community. Homebuilders, including Khov, are notoriously bad at that.
