PulteGroup’s Festival Ranch Master-Planned Community

PHOENIX – Feb. 11, 2020 – One of the nation’s largest homebuilders, PulteGroup, Inc. (NYSE: PHM) is leveraging its extensive brand and product portfolio to serve first-time buyers in the greater Phoenix area. The Company’s newest community, Festival Foothills Gateway in Buckeye, marks the return of the Centex brand to Phoenix.

“The Phoenix housing market, particularly among first-time buyers seeking more affordably-priced homes, is one of the strongest in the country,” said PulteGroup Arizona Division President Rebecca Lundberg. “Our Centex brand is a recognized leader in offering high-quality homes designed to meet the needs of first-time home buyers, so we are excited to bring these proven designs to the market.” 

Homes in Festival Foothills Gateway will include a select lineup of energy-efficient floor plans, professionally designed interior color packages that take the guesswork out of customizing a home and highly sought-after included features that make the home move-in ready. Combining these featured offerings with consistent, planned production allows Centex to offer homebuyers greater value and a faster closing.  

“Supported by our in-depth market knowledge, strong relationships with construction trades, and consumer inspired floor plans, we are simplifying the homebuying process to help more people realize the dream of homeownership,” said Lundberg. “Our newest Centex community will empower renters to leave their lease payments behind and confidently say ‘yes’ to buying a new home.”

Located west of Phoenix in the vibrant and growing Buckeye area, Festival Foothills Gateway features scenic Sonoran Desert views. Already home to Sun City Festival by Del Webb and Pulte Homes’ Festival Foothills, the vibrant master-planned Festival Ranch community offers residents a wide variety of on-site amenities, including a splash pad, basketball court, playground, walking trails, and onsite elementary school.
