Homebuilder enables comprehensive digital consumer experience to perform all aspects of a new home purchase remotely
ATLANTA, April 30, 2020 – For the last 70 years, PulteGroup has been a leader and innovator in homebuilding. Today, PulteGroup continues to drive industry change by providing a fully digital shopping and buying experience. Across its diverse brand portfolio that includes Centex, Pulte Homes, Del Webb, DiVosta Homes, American West and John Wieland Homes and Neighborhoods, PulteGroup has enabled innovative digital-driven technologies to provide a convenient, efficient, and safe homebuying experience for customers who prefer not to visit in person.
Starting with its cutting-edge online house-hunting tools, PulteGroup is making it easy for customers to shop from the comfort of their homes. Through virtual reality technology, homebuyers can experience and walk through homes via 3D and virtual tours. Online interactive tools allow customers to create a customized floor plan layout, visualize design options and choose a homesite with a real-time map of the community.
With simplicity and efficiency top of mind, customers can opt for a private in-person tour or choose to connect with New Home Specialists through calls, chats, texts and live video appointments. By leveraging available technology, customers can tour model homes, explore different homesites, select design options, and complete milestone walk-throughs virtually as they design and build the home of their dreams.
Additionally, Pulte Mortgage, a subsidiary of PulteGroup, offers homebuyers a fully digital lending experience that makes it easier and faster to exchange documentations and secure financing for their new home. Finally, when it is time to close on the new home, PulteGroup and its local partners will provide a seamless and safe closing process, with flexible options ranging from drive-through closings to fully digital eClosings, where documents can be shared and executed electronically.
“While homebuying has continued to evolve into the digital space in recent years, we are amplifying and leveraging our innovative sales and design technology to provide customers with the flexibility and convenience of our virtual tools in this new environment of social distancing and safety guidelines,” said Steve Schlageter, PulteGroup Senior Vice President of Operations and Strategy. “Our homebuyers have always been at the core of everything we do, and we are very proud to be able to provide a world-class, end-to-end virtual customer experience during this difficult time.”
