Find your new home in Houston
We believe in building homes the way they can, and should, be built. From helping renters become homeowners to finding people their second or third homes, we craft stunning, energy-efficient, 100% ENERGY STAR®-certified homes that can save as much as 50%* on utility costs. Our new homes are quieter, cleaner, healthier, smarter and safer.
Yep, we build the homes people want.
Meritage Homes was the first national builder to make every home built 100% ENERGY STAR® certified. We consistently exceed the minimum ENERGY STAR® requirements, build homes that achieve HERS scores as low as 61*, and introduced the first cost-effective NET ZERO home by a national builder.
With our unique building practices, Meritage homes on average, are twice as energy-efficient as a typical U.S. home of the same size. With an array of money-saving features, from spray-foam insulation and energy-efficient windows, that cut heating and cooling costs by as much as 50%, to ENERGY STAR® appliances that use up to 50% less energy and water, our homes are EPA certified and provide energy-cost savings of up to 80%. That’s an average of $50,000 spanning a 30-year mortgage.
Owning vs. Renting
There are plenty of great reasons why owning might be better than renting. Especially when you can own for about the same monthly payment. Do you feel like owning your own home is just out of reach? Truth is, owning your own home is much more affordable and easier than you might think. You can own a brand-new home with the plan, homesite and customized finishing touches of your choice, for about the same as what you spend on rent.
