We bought in Del Webb Lake Oconee in 2009, expecting Del Webb quality construction and Del Webb managerial philosophy. Instead we are stuck with Pulte "cut every corner we possibly can" and "let's treat all home buyers like *** misbehaving little kids".
Pulte conducts everything in secret and then lies to us about their decisions. Their mission is to sell homes as quickly and as cheaply as possible, and they will say anything to pull that off. I can't think of a single promise that has been kept. Whatever you do, do not buy a Pulte home unless you want to live in a poorly constructed house in a community where you need permission to do just about anything outside your 4 poorly constructed walls.
Pulte micromanages everything in the community - we have no say. There are rules for the sake of having rules- and you will be fined if you violate any rule. Pulte can change any rule it wants, whenever it wants and residents get no say. There is no honest communication- we have quarterly HOA meetings where residents are sometimes allowed to ask questions- but none of them ever really get answered. The only reason they bother to hold these meetings is because they need the residents to speak positively to prospective buyers.
Wish I had done my homework two years ago-I could have bought anywhere else and it would have been a better decision.
