Good location is the best thing Sweetgrass has to offer. Pulte is a shoddy builder.Hires cheapest workers they can find. Poor workmanship. Property Manager/Activities Director shows strong dislike for 55+ Active Adults. Treats residents like we're Assisted Living.

I love this community so much that I am currently building a second home while my first one is up for sale, come look, it's beautiful! (we are moving closer to new friends we have met out here and for the husband to get his golf cart garage). I do not feel the homes are over-priced, you get what you pay for. And what you get is a community unlike any other, a small town feel where everyone waves, with a real sense of pride and camaraderie. Del Webb is an extremely unique and fun place to live and if you're bored, it's your own fault. Yes, the starting prices of homes are just that, starting prices. You must add lot premiums, structural upgrades, design center options, etc.... But living in Del Webb feels as those you are at a 5 star resort, year round!!

We moved in about 18 months ago, and are very pleased with both the home and the community. The builder (Pulte) has been responsive to all of our service requests, Since the home is well built there have not been many.

A previous review by Paul commented that the homes here are overpriced. Compared to what? The amenities far exceed those of a typical subdivision (both indoor and outdoor pools, tennis courts, lakes with kayaks and paddleboats available for free use, organized social activities etc.)

Also, some buyers choose to pay a very large lot premium for a home directly on one of the lakes, (which of course adds to the price per sq. ft.)

This is a community where you can be as deeply involved, or as distant as you wish. I'm still working full time, so I haven't availed myself of all of the social opportunities, but I'm looking forward to the time a few years from now when we can just join in all that Sweetgrass has to offer.

We really like living here.. no regrets.

Very over priced. We purchased a home here and with the upgrades which would be included, fencing. granite counters, anything but chrome fixtures with most builders. You will pay an average of $ 145.00 per square foot with Del Webb. You need to hire a outside building inspector we found many issues as told by other residences.

The HOA is controlled by the PULTE Group not the owners. They do not advertise the $ 2000.00 one time fee for the homeowners association.

They want you to use their mortgage company which you can get better rates and fees elsewhere, and by the way they do not pay for the title policy so go choose your own title company.

We're currently building a brand new home here and are beyond excited to move in! After living in more of an urban environment for many years I am very excited to live in this gorgeous community! I could go on and on about how great everything is and we haven't even moved in yet! I can't wait to lounge by the pool next year and I know I will love the trails. We're looking forward to starting a new year in our new home, and to beginning a new chapter in life.
