In the Phoenix area, they are one of the better tract home builders.

In general, I don't like tract homes for many reasons including no customization for the exposure and the lot, they are more "showy" and less "livable", and they are usually designed to offend no one, rather than to be loved by one owner (see most GM cars, or most American beers).

Pulte builds with 2x6 exterior walls here, and offers certain amenities (e.g. extensive kitchen cabinetry) that most others don't offer at the same price.

I had rented one for two years, and my in-laws currently live in one now and are very happy.

Yes, there were quality-control problems such as the gas heating was not hooked up and this was not discovered until it was needed. Pulte, like all homebuilders, hires local contractors, on whom I place most of the blame for problems like that.

Their customer service seems to be better than the average here.
