Meritage Homes is a premier nationwide homebuilder located in Scottsdale, Arizona. The home construction company is ranked the 8th largest builder based on its closing of 7,355 homes and revenue of $3.04 billion in 2016.

A publicly traded company whose stock is listed on New York Stock Exchange, Meritage Homes specializes in the construction of single-family detached homes but also builds multi-home attached residences and townhomes. The nation’s eighth largest homebuilder also develops luxury real estate and active adult living communities in Arizona.

Meritage Homes builds homes and home communities in 29 metro areas in several states, including North Carolina, Texas, California, Nevada, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Alabama, Atlanta, and Tennessee. The company’s philosophy is not just to create elegant new home communities, but create a framework for a “better way of life.”

Since it was established in 1985, Meritage Homes has upheld one of the highest standards among peers. It offers homebuyers a unique blend of superior craftsmanship, exceptional energy efficiency, and dedication to customer satisfaction. Meritage Homes provide homebuyers with homes that are healthier, cleaner, quieter, safer, and smarter.

Meritage Homes’ energy efficiency-centric approach to homebuilding has not gone unnoticed. The homebuilder was recognized as the first American top 10 builder to make each new home 100% ENERGY STAR-certified.

Meritage Homes has also featured on the “Fastest Growing Companies in the US” list by Fortune Magazine for five years in a row. The company also prides itself on frequently appearing on Fortune’s high-revenue companies’ 1000 list. And that isn’t all – Meritage Homes has appeared on Forbes Platinum 400 for three years in a row for Best Big Companies in the US. It has also been regarded the Texas’ Builder of the Year for a whopping 5 times.

With a focus on building stunning homes in incredible locations at pocket-friendly prices, Meritage Homes has delivered more than 70,000 new homes since its inception in 1985.

Meritage Homes: the Short History

Steven Hilton and William Cleverly founded Meritage Homes in 1985 as Monterey Homes. The company was established to build luxury custom homes in the lucrative Phoenix-area of Scottsdale, Arizona. It was the only second homebuilder to emerge from the region.

Between 1985 and 1997, the company bought other homebuilders including Legacy Homes and Sterling Homes. In September that year, the name was converted from Monterey Homes to Meritage Homes, just in time for its IPO at the NYSE.

What Makes Meritage Homes Stand Out?

Incredibly Energy-Efficient Homes

Again, Meritage Homes is the first top 10 homebuilder in American to have all its new homes ENERGY STAR-certified. That is right; the company builds thoughtfully designed and beautifully made new homes that feature energy efficient fixtures. It’s claimed that Meritage Homes can help homeowners cut their utility bills by up 50%. Incredible, right? The homebuilder is doing all it can do enrich homeowner’s life and safeguard the environment.

Fabulous Floor Plans

Besides setting the par for energy-efficient new homes, Meritage Homes offers a wide range of fantastic floor plans that are open, providing an active connection from room to room.

Commitment to Quality

Design experts at Meritage Homes are committed to delivering quality and value to homebuyers. They use only the finest building materials, source components from trusted brands, and fit the home with the latest in appliances and fixtures.

Customer Service

Meritage Homes has an in-house team of consultants to help homebuyers throughout the homebuilding process, from start to finish. They also have a team to help customers find the right financing options.
