BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich., July 1, 2013

BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich., July 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Del Webb communities are
among the country's 50 best master planned communities for boomers as selected
by Where to Retire magazine. Del Webb has five communities on the list this
year – more than any other active adult builder. In the eight years the
biennial list has been issued by the publication, Del Webb communities have
been recognized 54 times.

Where to Retire reveals "The Short List: 50 Best Master-Planned Communities in
the United States," in its newly released July/August issue. Del Webb
communities on the list are: Sun City Anthem at Merrill Ranch and Sun City
Festival in Arizona; Sun City Shadow Hills in Southern California; Stone Creek
by Del Webb in Florida; and Sun City Peachtree by Del Webb In Georgia.

"Del Webb has been serving the pre-retirement and retiring boomer for many
years and being recognized more than any other builder is a testament to the
great lifestyle in our communities across the nation," said Deborah Wahl,
senior vice president and chief marketing officer for PulteGroup, Inc., parent
company of Del Webb. "Del Webb has built its success on knowledge of our
customers, and we understand that there is much diversity among boomer wants
and needs when it comes to their home and community."

The list is the only one of its kind, focusing on communities rather than
locales and featuring first person testimonials by current residents, said
Where to Retire Publisher Karen Northridge.

"Time and again, the retirees interviewed for this story told us their
neighborhoods give them opportunities to try different activities, connect
with like-minded people and in the process, build brand-new lifestyles,"
Northridge said. "For these retirees, their communities provide much more
than comfortable, attractive housing; they also serve as a catalyst for
residents to reinvent themselves."

Selections in 17 states won their place in the top 50 by breaking new ground
with amenities, expansive open space, work/life balance and a focus on green
living. The communities are not ranked, but rather profiled in alphabetical
order by state.
