Pulte Homes Reviews

Sari K April 1, 2010
No house as promised and paid
My family: mom, dad, two sisters and baby brother had to move from Pulte Homes house, because of construction defects. Our family also lost an opportunity to sell the house with any profits when everyone else was selling . Selling a moldy house would have been illegal and impossible. How is it possible that Pulte Homes did not get us a decent house they were paid for? Why is Pulte Homes so expensive when kids supervise its construction? Why was my premature baby brother born in stinky Las Vegas hotel room with skull asymmetry? We asked for compensation, all we got from Pulte Homes was lies, lies, lies.

Doesn't honor contract
We entered into a contract with Centex Homes in October, Pulte Homes purchased Centex homes. We were told They would not start our home unless we removed the contingency to sell our home even though we had a ratified contract saying they would start our home and we would have until 60 days prior to closing to remove the contingency. They recognize the fact that we have the contract and say if we choose to pursue them legally they will take 2 years to build our home. Which is a little "fail safe" for them in their contracts. In the end, they said we could release them from the contract and they would give us our full deposit back... But they were definitely not going to start our house. We had a closing date of April 22, 2010 to move into our dream house. Now we are stuck searching for a place to live...

Contamination
I wanted to warn potential buyers of Pulte Homes at Riverpoint in Manchester, New Jersey. Do not buy these homes!!! They are surrounded by sites with contaminated soil, for instance- Lakehurst Naval base is a SUPERFUND SITE!! Right across the street. Once the word gets out, the property value will drop. The site is also surrounded by industry such as Reade Manufacturing, this company works with Magnesium and had several explosions, one killed a worker. I will post more info as I come across it but start telling everyone you know about this site...IT SHOULD HAVE NEVER BEEN ALLOWED!!

DRYWALL/FINISHING/DRAINING SYSTEM
I HAD PURCHASED SECOND HAND A CONDO/2 STORY IN MANASSAS NEAR TEN YEARS NOW. I HAVE HAD TO TELL YOU THE DRYWALL IS BAD THE TAPE IS PEELED OF UNDER THE SLIGHT COAT OF PAINT. IT SEEMS THAT EVERY JOINT WAS NOT MUDDED AND FINISHED. THROUGHOUT THE TWO STORY COND. I HAVE HAD SEVERAL PROBLEMS WITH THE PLUMBING AND HEATING AND NOW IT'S PLUMBING UNDER THE THE WASHING MACHINE. WHICH HAS CAUSED A LEAK TO THE FIRST LEVEL AND NOW I NEED TO REPAIR THE CEILNG AGAIN! I HAVE PICTURES OF ALL THESE EVENTS ALL CAUSED BECAUSE PULTE DELIVERS A VERY POOR PRODUCT. I ALSO HAVE FOUND THAT THE LAUDRY ROOM WAS NOT COMPLETED THAT THE TRIM ON THE FLOOR WAS INCOMPLETE THE WINDOWS WERE THE CHEAPEST EVER/SCREENS. THE QUALITY IS THE WORST FINISHED PRODUCT AND I'M SURE THAT A HOME INSPECTION WAS NOT GOOD EITHER.I HAD OWNED A TOWNHOUSE AS WELL THAT WAS PULTE BUILT AND IT WAS NOT ANY BETTER. BUT AT THAT TIME MY HUSBAND WAS A VERY GOOD DRYWALL FINISHER AND HE SPENT HIS SPARE TIME FINISHING THE JOB RIGHT. NO MORE PULTE HOMES FOR ME AND I ADVISE OTHERS NOT TO EXPECT QUALITY WITH PULTE. PICTURES WOULD BE MADE AVAILABLE ON A AS NEEDED BASIS.

They build junk
I'm the second owner of a Pulte townhouse in Illinois which is now about 5 years old. What a dump. Terrible, substandard construction throughout.

Drywall seams between ceiling and walls are separating in every room in the place. The floors squeak (more like groan) in the master bedroom (two different spots), upstairs hallway, dining room and living room. I've lived in 100 year old houses that didn't have floor noise like this.

The stairs between the first and second floor creak so much, I fear I will have to tear out the carpeting and repair.

The kitchen light between the windows isn't even centered and you have to swag it to the side anyway so you can put a table under it. If you leave it in original position the refrigerator door slams into the chairs (nice job by the architect!).

Don't ever buy from this builder. The models look wonderful. The actual homes are junk.

Awful house
Pulte homes sold me a house that rot in structure. Legally I was not allowed to sell it. Due to mold and white flakes from drywall repairs that lasted for seven months my family were evicted into hotel. I was seriously stressed and delivered a baby prematurely in smoky Las Vegas hotel. How come I face punitive damages if I sell defective house, but Pulte Homes hasn't paid for damages it caused? My house lost over one million of its value and my baby got damaged during and after delivery. I would have made it to a hospital if I had lived in that Pulte home, but the hotel was too far away. Baby's respirator, physiotherapy and orthopedic devises were paid by me as well.

Scam
We went to Skybrook North in Concord NC to visit a Pulte Model only to fall in love with this home and actually made an offer, verbally accept the counteroffer, when the sales rep kim powell tried to pull bait and switch on my contract we we asked her about correct numbers she stated that she would get that completed after another appointment because she had no where to print the new contract and low and behold she sold the home to her next appointment, she had to have that contract with her and never planned to sell us the home.

Fraud
Pulte Home Orlando fl Fraud rip off.

Reasons why you should not purchase a home from Pulte Homes or other builders under the corp. umbrella of Dewebb, Centex homes. If you or someone that you know purchased a home from Pulte homes or Deweb. It’s very important that you take the time to read my post. This could save you thousands! Maybe save your home or even give you the ammo to make Pulte homes purchase that over priced home that you purchased at the wrong time.

Between 11/2007 and 4/2008 Pulte homes sales staff Ripped off unsuspected home buyers in the Orlando area in a community located near the Orlando Convention center called Vista Cay. During the time. Pulte Homes sales staff during the time that the real estate market was declining in the middle of 2007, According to Court documents recorded in public records. Pulte homes sold dozen of homes in the Orlando area at higher sales prices, paying an 8% real Estate commission plus a $50, 000.00 to $70, 000.00 selling bonus to the selling realtor. Now what really took place in this situation? Pulte homes sales staff assisted the buyers in getting a large portion of this money back in their pockets at closing, some of cash I feel went back into the pockets of the sales stuff from Pulte. When Pulte Home supplied my Real Estate Company with a sales contract with a much lower commission to keep from raising suspensions. But after obtaining the finial HUD-1 statements provided to the Lenders such as SunTrust and Chase I found that there was sales commissions appeared to go to my company that I never received. The average commission was about $90, 000.00 on a 335k purchase. Sounds a little fishy………….right? I have been a Real Estate Agent for 13 years and Mortgage Broker for at least that long as well.
When I discover I was taxed by the IRS for over 1, 000, 000.00 in revenue that I never received I contacted Pulte home office in Michigan. I was routed to an office in the Orlando area. After a meeting with the VIPs of the company and several emails Pulte informed me that the sales staff did not do anything out of the ordinary and nothing wrong. Well I beg to differ. My questions are as follows.
1. How did the sales contracts and closing statements inflated by 100k get by the bean counters in Michigan? When we all know production builders are all about the bottom line.
2. How does Pulte explain sales contracts that they provided to me with sales commissions about 92k less per transaction then what really happen?
3. What is Pulte doing for all the other buyers that purchased homes in a 14 month time frame that paid far too much? What this did was artificially inflated the value of all the homes sold in this time frame. YOU PAID 100, 000.00 more then what you should have in that time frame.
4. What about the other homeowners struggling to resell condos that are worth less then a 1/3 of what the original cost was.
5. What about the Home Buyers that lost their homes because of Pulte Homes Greed and fraudulent dealings.

This is all public record and I would be happy to review your closing documents to see if you have fallen victim of Pultes Scam. Email me today or have your Lawyer contact me. I would be happy to share copies of the documents that I have. You may be entitled to be a part of a potential class action case against Pulte Homes.

Does Pulte Leverage Ad Dollars so Media Ignores Protests?
Does Pulte Homes leverage ad dollars so media ignores protests by fired workers and disgruntled homeowners? This video is interesting http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MlbwtL-Wgyk

Very Poor Fit and Finish
Hands down the worst drywall finish, door frame finish I have ever experienced in my life. We were rushed through our closing and with a bit of slight of hand weren't able to really take the time to fully examine all of the walls, doors, etc. When you have your final walk through take at least half a day and examine all joints and door frames/trim. I've seen better dry walling done by weekenders with little or no experience. Pulte will lie to you, will try to get you to settle for less than you deserve, and will stall, stall, stall in an attempt to run out your warranty. They do not build quality homes and their sales staff are little more than used cars sales people.

Stay away from Pulte Homes. We've fought them for two years and have gotten a number of things corrected, but the quality of materials used and fit and finish does not warrant what they charge for their townhomes.

I read recently where Centex merged with them; hopefully they'll learn a thing or two because the quality is non existant and they don't care. Their response to most things, without saying it, is essentially "tough luck buddy, you were stupid enough to buy from us'.

Whatever you do don't buy a Pulte home.
