My wife and I signed and paid a $40,000 deposit to purchase a new construction Pulte home that was advertised as starting in the mid $300’s.
Before we even got to our design options we were at $420k and after the options our price was $462,510.
Our price was substantially higher than all of the other recent closings.
They said the reason we are so much higher is because (1) our base price was increased from the time of the other closings and (2) We selected higher options that everyone else.
We found numerous errors regarding the design options, including a $2,600 “pricing error” regarding a radiant barrier.
They brushed off the errors by saying “it happens”.
We decided not to move forward with the purchase and they are now keeping our $40,000 deposit even though they have only begun the foundation.
Please be warned. Once Pulte deceives you out of your money and signature, their contract will oMnly protect themselves no matter how many lies and mistakes they make.
I cannot stress this enough.
