Meritage Homes – Why Work With Us?


It's About You More Than It's About Us.

Some might say it's important to tell you that we've been around since 1985. Or that we've won a slew of awards ranging from Forbes' Platinum 400 Best Big Companies of America to being the recipient of Texas' Builder of the Year five times, or being named ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year. But we're about practicality and doing things that actually make a difference in your life and the way you live.

For instance, you're probably a lot more interested in knowing that Meritage builds new, beautifully designed, energy-efficient homes that can save you as much as 50% on your utility bills.* Or, that we were the first national top 10 homebuilder to have every home we build be 100% ENERGY STAR certified. That means it saves you energy and money.

With more than 100,000 homes built, our focus, since day one, has been to build incredible new homes and communities in prime locations for fantastic prices. We build them for real people: People with families and those without; people with everyday, busy lives, and those who are now enjoying a more relaxed lifestyle. But more than anything, we build energy-efficient homes and communities for people who appreciate a home being built the way it can, and should, be built. For you it means having a new home that comes standard with ENERGY STAR features that save money and energy, month after month, at no extra cost to you.


We Help Build Great Careers, Too.

From the homes we build to the careers we offer, we’re about doing things that actually make a difference in your life and the way you live. Meritage Homes is a thriving company that believes in building beautiful, incredibly innovative and energy-efficient homes people adore.

And for the staff at Meritage Homes that make this all possible, we believe in having the same standards of quality and reward that make for an enjoyable career.
