A Happy New Year For Winner Of ?I WANT A NEW HOME!? Sweepstakes



TAMPA, FLA. January 10, 2014 – Katherine Smith of Valrico, Florida no longer needs to dream of owning her first home.  She is the winner of the 2013 “I Want a New Home!” Sweepstakes sponsored by Pulte Homes and Zillow®.

Words can't express how happy and grateful I am after winning the sweepstakes.  Never in a million years would I think something so special could happen to me,” says Katherine who has two children, ages 7 and 17.

“I am going to purchase my first home as soon as possible and then relax.  My family was very happy for me; my parents have been listening to me for about two years now expressing my thoughts on buying my first home.  Before winning the sweepstakes, buying a home was just a wish.”

In October, she was searching online for a new home and came across an advertisement for the sweepstakes, which offered the opportunity to win a choice of a $350,000 credit to purchase a participating Pulte home or a $350,000 cash option.  Now she plans on using the prize money to purchase her first home.

Users who entered the sweepstakes on Facebook were eligible to enter to win $5,000 bonus cash.  An Arizona resident is the winner of the $5,000 Bonus Cash Sweepstakes.

Katherine has a variety of new-home communities from the PulteGroup family of brands in the Tampa area to choose from for her first home, including Life Tested home designs and features inspired by our actual homeowners.  Communities in the area include Bonvida in Valrico, Magnolia Park in Riverview, Stonebrier in Lutz, Harrison Ranch in Parrish, and Trillium in Brooksville.
