BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich., Aug. 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- While the recently passed housing stimulus package helps first-time homebuyers to enter the housing market, Pulte Homes (NYSE: PHM) is giving an even broader boost to buyers as it launches its "Jump-Start" promotion for all Pulte homebuyers. Every buyer who signs a purchase agreement on a new Pulte, Del Webb or DiVosta home from August 5 through September 15, 2008 is eligible for at least $7,500 in savings in addition to any government-sponsored tax credits that may apply to their home purchase.
"Pulte Homes fully supports the tax credit and steps taken in the housing stimulus plan to provide an infusion of buyer confidence within the housing industry," said Richard J. Dugas, Jr., president and chief executive officer of Pulte Homes. "While we expect the tax credit to get more first-time homebuyers off the sidelines and into a home, we wanted to stimulate home buyers and sellers at all points on the homeownership spectrum. The Jump-Start promotion ensures that all Pulte homebuyers receive at least $7,500 in savings in recognition of this legislation."
Pulte Homes' Jump-Start promotion applies to new purchase agreements executed between August 5, 2008 and September 15, 2008 on Pulte, Del Webb and DiVosta homes. Jump-Start offerings vary by community and may be part of or added to existing offers. Contact a local Pulte Homes community for more details by visiting www.pulte.com or calling (888) 68-PULTE.
