Pulte Homes Plans More Communities In Greater Seattle


Homebuilder Purchases 58 Lots in Bonney Lake


SEATTLE, WA – December 18, 2013 – On the heels of two successful new community openings in the metro Seattle area, Pulte Homes has purchased 58 lots for a new home community in Bonney Lake.


Pulte purchased the fully developed lots in the Tehaleh master plan from Newland Communities, and expects to open for sales in March 2014, said Mark Kaushagen, president of PulteGroup’s Pacific Northwest Division.  He said the new Pulte community will provide young families the opportunity to purchase a new home near major employment corridors at an affordable price.


“Tehaleh is one of only a few master planned communities in the entire Seattle market, and offers homebuyers a multitude of parks, walking trails and well respected schools on-site at an affordable price,” Kaushagen said, adding that Bonney Lake is a family friendly city with recreation and a myriad of retailers and services.  “As a key player in the market, Pulte is focused on building homeowners the ideal home and community in the best locations.”


Pulte recently opened two new communities in popular suburbs within three weeks of each other - Creekside Place in Mill Creek and Arbors in Maple Valley.  The new Pulte community in Tehaleh will offer single-story homes with private backyards and larger lots.  In addition, two of the plans will feature lofts and additional bedrooms that suit extended families living together, long-term guests and a variety of family living situations.


Kaushagen said the homebuilder continues to actively seek investments in additional sites for Pulte Homes and its Centex and Del Webb brands.  Centex has more than 30 years of experience in the Seattle market and the company opened its first metro Pulte community in 2011.
