“North Carolina continues to enjoy a healthy, growing economy, with jobs and development being attracted to major population centers like Charlotte and the Raleigh-Durham regions, as well as thriving areas along the coast like Wilmington,” said Greg Huff, president for PulteGroup’s Southeast Area. “While Centex has long had a presence in the greater Charlotte and Raleigh areas, we are also pleased to be bringing the Centex brand to Wilmington for the first time.”

“Our new Centex communities meet the needs of millennials and young families, as well as empty-nesters looking for more moderately priced homes,” said Huff. “Whether it is a buyer who is starting out or perhaps one who is starting over, our Centex communities offer the right home designs, in the right locations, at price points that deliver outstanding value to these buyer groups.”

All Centex homes will include PulteGroup’s new Smart Home technology, allowing homeowners to choose options which give them the ability to seamlessly control their lights, thermostat, security systems, appliances and more with just the touch of their cell phone or the sound of their voice. Centex homes are ready to connect with seamless WiFi reliability and increased bandwidth, thanks to built-in access points and direct wiring throughout the home. Built-in wiring and assured connectivity from anywhere in the home allows access to a full array of customizable home automation technologies and features designed to run a smarter home.

With pricing from the $200s, the newest Centex communities now open in North Carolina are Adair Park, located close to Wilmington in nearby Leland, and Hidden Valley, in Fuquay-Varina, just south of Raleigh. The Centex communities of Starmount Cove, in Charlotte, and Lakeshore, in Durham, are scheduled to open in early 2019.
