Unlike the last 40 years, consumers buying a new home are not just focused on home availability, financing, and quality, but in establishing an entirely new expectation on how the American home is built.
Meritage Homes has spent the last few years working with customers, scientists, and suppliers to reinvent the American home. The result is not a choice between being comfortable and reduced utility bills, but superior construction that provides superior benefits to the people who live in our homes.
For years, buyers have been asking for improvements in the lifestyle available in new homes. According to consumer advocate surveys, home buyers are searching for:
- Better utility cost savings
- Reduced impact on the environment
- Improved quality
- Reduced use of water
- Increased value of their homes
To accomplish this, Meritage Homes redefined the way homes are built by better understanding how our customers live and how they need their home to function. The result is s new strategy that includes building the right homes in the right locations, incorporating open and flexible floor plans, and providing superior components that function better and add more benefits to the people who live in our homes.
One of the largest partners we have in building better homes is the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and US Department of Energy (DOE). Both the EPA and DOE have national research programs dedicated to reducing the amount of wasted energy that comes from inefficiently built homes. These partnerships have allowed Meritage to build homes that function very differently from conventional construction. Read MoreShare/Bookmark
