I took a client over there recently and they were offering some very good incentives.

I would do a search on Pulte. I know several people that have bought Pulte and have not been satisfied, to say the least.

I have inspected several, and a friend lives there. They are what you would expect from a tract builder at that price point....reasonably well built, but nothing spectacular.

I looked at their townhomes on Litchford Rd. Junk beyond belief.

Now sold out, so someone bought them.

I also had a client looking at them and didn't like the noise from Glenwood and that they all backed up to each other. They did look nice inside and were giving alot of options, but if you don't like the location. Actually the location to me is great and close to everything, if only they had some lots thats were more private. They are just all on top of each other there. A few that are available now either back up to the main rd, or back up to that junk yard whatever that is in the back. They were trying to tell us that they were the best lots. un huh right. Well anyway we ended up buying in Chapel Hill.

I'm an ex-Pulte owner who lived in the Merritt floorplan, which I believe is offered in Glenwood Crossing. Plus, I rented a Pulte (not sure of the name of the plan but it had no garage) prior to owning. They are your average run-of-the-mill national builder. Nothing spectacular but nothing that is going to fall apart around your feet anytime soon. In regards to Glenwood Crossing, most people I know have complained about the location.

Although Cornerstone Park is in the same area, less noise and more privacy. Something to consider.

My client decided against a townhouse and we bought in The Park At West Lake in South Cary. She purchased one of the homes in The Commons.

Wow, as a current homeowner in Glenwood Crossing I am surprised at the negative comments being posted. Yes, Pulte is a track builder so you're not going to get anything spectacular. But I have had 0 issues with anything so far, and I've found the team there to be very responsive and proactive. The location is great for me; I'm 15 minutes from my job in RTP and with gas being as high as it is, I am quite happy with that. The lots do back up to each other but one of the nice things about the community is that you can fence in your yard. This was a necessity for me because I have a large dog, and I wanted a fence so I could have some level of privacy. I never hear any noise from my neighbors or from Glenwood. Just the occasional plane overhead. Personally I think Pulte offered a lot of upgrades for the price, but I do agree with a previous poster that not all of the lots are that great. There are a few being built now that overlook the Bojangles, which I would not want. It is a very social neighborhood as well, which I like.

I also looked in Cornerstone Park and I don't believe they allow fences in the back of their townhomes, which ruled them out for me. I walk my dog over there sometimes, and I don't like the sewage canals that are all over that neighborhood. They didn't do a very good job of hiding those, in my opinion.

I have no problems with Pulte, as a homebuilder and I have sold plenty of their homes.

Pulte had issues but that was years ago.

They aren't any better nor any worse than any of the other production builders in this area.

Opinions, opinions, opinions...everyone has them!
