Pulte Homes Unveils First Community in Portland Market


Summer Creek in Tigard Opens To Public January 15

PORTLAND, OR – January 6, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) — Pulte Homes is opening its first community in the Portland market, offering homebuyers a prime location, distinctive homes and great value.  The public is invited to tour the new model homes at the grand opening of Summer Creek by Pulte Homes from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, January 15 and Sunday, January 16.

Since announcing the purchase of the 88-unit townhome community in Tigard just four months ago, “nearly 100 prospective homebuyers have signed up on an early interest list,” said Brian Bullock, Director of Sales for Pulte Homes in the Pacific Northwest.  The new Pulte Homes community will be the first ever in the Pacific Northwest.  Pulte merged with Centex in 2009, and now as PulteGroup, has since been looking for the right location and time to expand its brands locally.

“People are very excited about the debut of Pulte Homes in the market,” Bullock said, adding that Pulte is known for building communities in prime locations with a focus on detail, quality and craftsmanship.  “Summer Creek offers an ideal location and smart life-enhancing home designs that have a contemporary flair and great attention to detail.”

The community features three-story homes (full garage on lower level and two living levels above) starting in the $180s ranging from 1,186 to 1,460 square feet.  Standard quality finishes include slab granite kitchen countertops, stainless steel appliances, birch cabinetry, and hardwood flooring on the entire main floor.  The new townhomes offer up to three bedrooms, fully maintained front yards, fenced back yards with decks, and attached private garages.  The community features community areas, sidewalk-lined streets and its own private park complete with play equipment.

The community is centrally located on the corner of SW Scholls-Ferry Road and SW 135th Avenue near Highway 217 in Tigard.  Summer Creek is on the west side of Washington County close to Washington Square Mall, restaurants, entertainment, Summerlake Park, local farms and scenic orchards.

“Location is important and Summer Creek delivers,” Bullcok said, adding that the community is targeted toward young professionals looking for distinctive homes in locations close to employment centers, entertainment and shopping.  “The community offers a real sense of neighborhood and community, with the low-maintenance lifestyle that comes with townhome living.”

The grand unveiling of three fully decorated model homes occurs January 15th and 16th from 10am to 5pm. Complimentary latte’s from Pacific Perks will be served all day, plus model home visitors will be treated to lunch from 11am to 2pm by “Chili inside, Chili Outside”, compliments of Pulte Homes. Model homes and the new sales information center is located at 10907 SW Sage Terrace in Tigard. For more information please call 866-813-7669, or visit www.pulte.com/summercreek
