There are common people everywhere--trespassers, vandals, cowards, etc.

At least my tires didn't get slashed, as has happened to others in this gated community. (I wish they'd try, though, because I'd catch the SOB.)

http://www.apexdesignsllc.com/chicago-mortgage/pulte-cedar-ridge-lockport-question/

"Thinking of buying a home in Cedar Ridge Lockport area – Pulte homes. Honestly, the build quality looks really good. Fit and finish are great. Is there anybody here who could shed some light on personal experiences with Pulte in Lockport. I understand that some Pulte homes in other places of the country haven’t always been great. But, when I walked through a few homes, the quality seems pretty good. They did everything right… Anyone else think so?"

Cindy has been posting her question on Twitter ("Pulte Cedar Ridge Lockport (Illinois) Question") for some time. She's received ONE comment: On 12/26/10, lockwood_1979 said: "I need one, but I am in Maine."

Let me explain something to you, Cindy. You're not going to get an answer to your question, because NOBODY CARES.

I'm CONFIDENT that I will be able to sell my shoddy Pulte house,
because buyers aren't researching builders before they buy (like you're doing, and I didn't).

The other reason that you won't get an answer to your question is
because people who own shoddy Pulte houses aren't talking (because they want to be able to sell their shoddy Pulte house too).

So, Cindy, you get an A+ for trying...
but no kewpie doll.
Forget trying to get an answer to your question, Cindy...
NOBODY CARES.

Pulte Homes Complaint by Fashionbug20

"My parents purchased a home 28 years ago, and yes it is a pulte home. Not only did pulte not finish our neighborhood, the foundation is starting to collapse around us. This shoddy work that is probably done by the subcontractors they hire. These houses are good for the first 10 years but then just start to crumble. It is a very sad situation for all the blood, sweat and tears my parents put in this house. Word of advice- think twice before buying Pulte. Do your research before losing on your investment by purchasing PULTE. Shame on you Mr Pulte for hiring subcontractors that can't do the job."

SUCKERS!

Pulte stock is up to $4.23/share (down from $47.405/share on 7/28/05). Look for all the scumbag stockbrokers on Twitter to be pushing Pulte's crappy stock.

Meanwhile all the scumbag real estate sales agents on Twitter are pushing Pulte's shoddy houses.

"Intrigued?

We are. We say the selloff was wildly overdone and RSI readings confirm that. Even during the bear market of 2008 Pulte never saw an RSI dip below the 20 line.

We also like the mortgage bailout story and apparently so did the market. Pulte moved higher by 30% since bottoming last week, along with a few other big names in the sector. Pulte has also seen some 50,000 shares purchased by insiders in the last six months. We’re betting more will show up imminently.

Wall Street Elite recommends a speculative purchase of Pulte Homes April 2012 $6 CALLS, now trading at $0.60."

next?

Pulte received TWICE the stimulus $$$ that Solyndra did. Like Solyndra, Pulte's stimulus $$$ are unaccounted for. Also, the Obama administration appointed Richard Dugas, Pulte's CEO, to advise the president.

After Solyndra, is Pulte next?

"weak consumer sentiment"

.
http://www.therealestatebloggers.com/2007-forecast-real-estate/pulte-homes-estimated-2nd-quarter-charges-740-to-770-million/

The difficult conditions that plagued the home-building industry in the first quarter of 2007 worsened in the second quarter, with increased competitive pricing pressures, elevated levels of new and resale home inventory, and weak consumer sentiment for housing affecting the entire industry,” said Chief Executive Richard Dugas in a statement.

Recent jitters over fallout in subprime mortgages have only worsened the bleak outlook for the U.S. residential housing market.


Home builders have been taking write-offs to reflect land and home prices that have lost value in the face of the housing downturn, but Wall Street analysts noted the magnitude of Pulte’s expected charge.

“Pulte’s impairment charge is the largest taken in a single quarter by a public home builder in the current cycle,” wrote Wachovia analyst Carl Reichardt in a report to clients.

ESPECIALLY "weak consumer sentiment" for Pulte's shoddy houses, Dugas.

"Goldman's conviction buy call on Pulte cost investors 40%. It remains to be seen what investors will lose with Pulte still rated buy by the bank."

Either way, stupid or Pulte suck-up, 


Goldman's advice sucks--just like Pulte's houses.

SCHH HOA

.
VIOLATION: decorative flower pots
VIOLATION: small American flag magnet on garage door
And now, the latest,
VIOLATION: green mailbox
(This latest may be the MOST ridiculous of them ALL!)

SCHH mailboxes are all alike. They’re the rural type: metal mailbox on a wood post. The only differences are that in some neighborhoods the standard black mailboxes are on dark green wood posts. In others (like ours) the posts are painted black.

The Pulte-controlled HOA sends out a TYSK (Things You Should Know) email instructing homeowners to paint their mailboxes green.

Yes, that's correct--the email EXPLICITLY instructed homeowners to paint the MAILBOX (not the post) green. This, in fact, was verified when an HOA employee told a homeowner who lives across the street from us "The letter is the letter!"

Four in our neighborhood of approximately 100 homes painted their mailboxes green. Recently, the HOA did a routine, "CHICKEN SHIT" (seniors, take note), inspection and cited the four for their green mailboxes. They were told that they have 14 days to paint them black, or face the consequences ($$$ fine).


ARE THESE PEOPLE STUPID OR WHAT?!?

Senior citizens,
Don’t buy a Pulte house in a Pulte/Del Webb community.
Not only will you get a shoddy house, but also you’ll have some of the dumbest people ANYWHERE HASSLING you.

weak foundation

.
from http://www.dailyfinance.com/2011/09/01/3-stocks-stopping-the-presses/?source=TheMotleyFool

A weak foundation

If things are looking up for mortgage insurers, then it's got to be a good time to buy homebuilders, too, right? There seems to be a consensus building that now's a good time to get into PulteGroup, Toll Brothers (NYS: TOL) , and KB Home (NYS: KBH) . Heck, even home prices turned up, rising 3.6% in the second quarter.

But look again at the rising level of delinquencies and foreclosures, the persistently high unemployment rate, and an economy that can't get its footing, and you'll see that the analysts thinking Pulte has more upside are simply whistling past the graveyard.

CAPS All-Star Chemdawg agrees there's still a very long road before there's any light at the end of the tunnel:

"not the strongest in a group of businesses all facing significant headwinds....just keeps losing money....recovery is still 18 months out and Pulte may not be here to see it..."

"All of which brings us to our trade recommendation for the week.

The entire homebuilding group got kicked in the androids this month and is still spinning through the iPod. The SPDR S&P Homebuilders ETF (NYSE:XHB) fell 30% from its top in May, and individual issues, like Pulte Homes (NYSE:PHM) fell over 50% just this month.

Physician, heal thyself

.
Housing is down.

Pulte and their minions, contractors, subcontractors, sales agents, real estate agents, suppliers, stockbrokers, stock analysts, media, trade associations, industry experts, politicians, and others feeding at the Pulte trough would have us believe that it's an economic meltdown, a bad economy, foreclosures, a housing glut, bad mortgages, etc. that are responsible.


How much does shoddy construction and poor customer treatment have to do with poor sales?

Answer: PLENTY.

Why isn't peretired.blogspot.com showing up in a "Pulte" Google search?

It's really no surprise that Twitter, Google, Pulte, sales and real estate agents, contractors and subcontrators, suppliers, etc. would conspire against those who want to get the truth out about them and their clients.
