Pulte Homes has been building homes at Epperson since the community opened last April. And in just eight months, its sales team has sold 40 homes, and recently began selling homes in its second phase of 207 home sites.
“The energy at Epperson is contagious. Not only here at Pulte, but in the entire community,” said Alexandria Fowlow, a Pulte sales associate at Epperson.
“Of course, people are excited about the Crystal Lagoon. But, it’s more than that. People want to live in a new town where they’ll have everything they want – a beautiful place to live, play and even work,” said Fowlow.
The 7.5-acre Crystal Lagoon is now filled with turquoise water reminiscent of the Caribbean, and that is driving even more people to Pulte’s sales center at Epperson. When Pulte kicked off sales of its second phase in January, Fowlow and her sales colleague, Mark Hofferberth, sold 14 homes during the first week.
“Now that people can see the lagoon, the demand has been incredible,” said Fowlow. “Plus, our homes are among the closest in distance to the Lagoon, so that is another big draw.”
Pulte’s homes are an easy walk or bike ride to the Crystal Lagoon, with most homes being just a half-mile away from the community’s massive amenity center. The lagoon is a 7.5-acre environmentally sustainable pool with its own private sand beaches, tidal pool, swim-up bar, and kayak launch. Surrounding the lagoon will be lush tropical landscaping, restaurants, an event pavilion, cabanas and water sport rentals.
In addition to the lagoon, Epperson also offers residents the fastest Internet and Wi-Fi speeds in the nation because it is part of Wesley Chapel’s Connected City Corridor. This means that every Pulte home in Epperson is offering residents 1 gigabit of Internet speed.
“Being part of the Connected City is important to buyers of all ages, because everyone wants the fastest online connectivity and wants to live in a community that offers the latest technology,” said Fowlow.
After deciding Epperson would be a great place to live, many future residents select Pulte as their builder because of its wide variety of floor plans, the ability to personalize and customize their home, and because of Pulte Homes’ affordability and exceptional value.
Pulte homebuyers have 11 floor plans to choose from, and each offers five or six different elevations.
“Our communities do not have a cookie-cutter look — our homes have great curb appeal, and every home can be customized inside and out,” said Fowlow.
Epperson Pulte models are between 1,500 to 3,200 square feet, with base prices ranging from $240,000 to $328,000. Every Pulte home is energy-efficient and comes with an exclusive 10-year limited warranty.
“Home sites are available on 40-foot, 50-foot and 60-foot lots, and most back up to water or conservation. Plus, every backyard offers privacy, and many are oversized,” said Fowlow.
Currently buyers receive a $10,000 flex cash incentive, if they use Pulte’s preferred lender, which they can apply toward closing costs and design center options.
Pulte’s Sales Center is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday from noon to 6 p.m. Please stop by to visit Alex and Mark at 7905 Olive Brook Drive, Wesley Chapel, Florida 33545. They can also be reached at (877) 251-3076, or by emailing or .
