Two Home Builders Buy North Valley Land

Both Pulte and AV Homes acquired land slated for residential development north of Phoenix this week, with Pulte picking up preliminarily platted lots in North Phoenix and AV Homes acquiring final platted lots in Scottsdale. Pulte’s acquisition comes on the heels of their nearly $16m acquisition of three subdivisions in Chandler, Mesa and Phoenix last week, resulting in total acquisition costs for the past two weeks well in excess of $18m for the Bloomfield Hills, MI-based homebuilder. Aside from its take down of Encore at Eastmark as part of a Joint Venture and rolling lots in Estrella Mountain Ranch, this is the first acquisition of residential land by AV Homes in 2014.
