PulteGroup Enters Columbia, South Carolina Market with Two New Communities

Pulte Homes, Centex Brands to be Part of Grand Arbor Community

COLUMBIA, SC, August 23, 2022 – PulteGroup, one of the nation’s largest homebuilders, today announced its entry into the Columbia, South Carolina market. The homebuilder will debut two new communities from its Pulte Homes and Centex brands in Grand Arbor, a master planned community in Blythewood, in June 2023.

“Starting with our first Centex and Pulte Homes communities in Grand Arbor, we are excited to offer the exceptional quality and value available in the PulteGroup family of brands right here in Columbia,” said Matt Raines, Coastal Carolinas division president for PulteGroup. “The Columbia area, and in fact the entire state of South Carolina, has a wealth of positive qualities which continue to attract new residents, including global access and infrastructure, a talented workforce and quality education.”

Blythewood’s Grand Arbor community is the company’s first entry into the market, but it won’t be the last. PulteGroup, with several brands each tailored to the needs of specific homebuyer groups, has eight additional new communities under contract in the market.

“Through our Pulte, Centex and Del Webb communities, we are working hard every day to expand our presence in the Columbia market. We look forward to serving new homebuyers and creating customers for life in this market,” said Raines.

Centex homes offer affordably priced modern homes for first-time buyers, with spacious open floor plans that are pre-wired for greater connectivity and superior Wi-Fi, with an array of included features. Pulte homes are perfect for move-up buyers and growing families, offering versatile living spaces, flexible floor plans, and the ability to create a home that is uniquely personalized. Finally, Del Webb is the nation’s leading builder of active adult communities for those 55 and older, providing homes and amenities designed for preretirement and retirees.

The Grand Arbor community will offer scenic views with extensive open space, natural areas and a 12-acre lake. Located near excellent schools, the community is just a few minutes from the acclaimed Blythewood High School. Future residents will enjoy robust amenities, including pickleball and basketball courts, a youth soccer field, walking trails, pool and pavilion for outdoor activities and gatherings. The exact lineup of home designs has yet to be announced, but prospective homebuyers can expect to find one- and two-story floorplans with 3-4 bedrooms and two-car garages with pond, wooded and creek view lots.
