THE CHANGING WESTERN HOME

The Bullocks opted for a brand-new developer house

Phoenix residents Julia and Joe Bullock started searching to buy their first home in long-established neighborhoods. They wanted space for a growing family and a room where Julia could practice yoga. "But then we realized that it would take a few years and a lot of money to redo an older house," Julia says. "We found that we could get a brand-new home with a mountain view and large rooms for the boys for the same price as a fixer-upper."

The Bullocks bought a new house in the South Mountain Village development built by KB Homes. The family is within 10 minutes of shopping, school, and work. "It was the right choice for us, because we just don't have time to remodel," Julia says. She owns Yoga Planet in Tempe, Joe has his own mortgage and real estate company, sons Jackson (8) and Malik (6) attend school, and Cameron (3) stays home with his mom.
