Just wondering.
nation wide Pulte's reputation is lack luster... although I suppose you could say that about most builders... about 15 + yrs ago they got in a lot of hot water w/ law suits regarding building in the North (stucco) and have had trouble in Atlanta... I know them to be a lower grade track builder... however they do seem to have a decent reputation in NC and Allen Tate Reps seem to like them... that's about all I can say... I just can't believe they can actually build and sell a house that size in chimneys of Marvin for that price point and people are buying them...the pure ratios don't work in my mind. Again personal thought.

that is so true Mad, that is why dh didnt want to build there..because you are buying at the most expensive and well if the housing market should go down in the next few years, well those that bought at the highest price points are the ones that wont see much profit....and 430k for a 2800 sq ft house is alot of money...and their hoa fees are 1200 a year..and you ONLY get the incentives if you use their mortgage company..I will say though we know quite a few people who are in chimneys and they have responded VERY quickly to fixing the issues at hand and most of them had a VERY short punch list..so I guess in the scheme of things they build a decent house although they all look alike...and dh didnt GO WOW when we looked at the big ones for 549k which coming from NJ I would never spend..

We live in Cureton, and we heard at our HOA meeting last week from a rep with GS Carolina that Lowe's (the home store) should start building the earliest at the end of this year, the latest in Spring.

We are building with Cunnane Group in Fort Mill (Springfield) and the process so far has been practically flawless. I live in S. Florida currently but from what I have researched they have an excellent reputation. I LOVE the style of their homes (inside and out) and they come standard with granite, stainless steel, wood floors, 4 piece crown molding, oversized baseboards and more. They give you a close date the day you sign your contract so there is no quess work as to when your home will be completed. I would encourage you to check them out!

Smile Oaks on Providence

The Oaks on Providence in Waxhaw were built by Saussy Burbank.

We built a house in the back section in 1999. There aren't many like ours in the development and we really liked it that way.

We built the 2119-N Dilworth Collection house that was 1 1/2 stories. The living room had cathedral ceilings with 10 foot ceilings in the kitchen, bath, master bedroom and dining room on the first floor. The second story had 2 bedrooms, full bath and a finished bonus room.

We moved from there in 2002 due to my husband's job transfer to Philadelphia.

We have seen many new homes and builders and we have never seen any better than those built by Saussy Burbank. Their attention to detail, trim moldings, etc. are unsurpassed for those that prefer quality. Saussy homes are easy to pick out when you go to different neighborhoods.

I've been to some of the other neighborhoods and while they are nice I guess we just prefer those built by Saussy Burbank.

Hope this helps!

I recently spoke with someone high up with Pace. They have developed areas like Lawson, High Gate, Kingsmead,Hunter Oaks. He told me a few builders that they consider to be top notch for customer care and for building houses. Pulte was in the top three. He said that they are a great builder with fabulous customer service. Hope this helps.
