There is a VERY COOL builder making a mark in the Northwest Valley. Meritage Homes has a subdivision where they are building homes the way all builders should be building…GREEN!
What’s different about these homes? Well…the list is long:
1. 100% Energy Star Qualified and MORE…as much as 500% MORE. Estimated 80% home energy savings (lighting, heating, cooling and water)
2. ECHO Solar Electric/Thermal System produces up to 10,000 kWh energy offset annually. A typical home consumes 20,000 kWh annually…A 50% SAVINGS!
3. High Performance Wall System…3X more efficient than a standard wall
4. Air Sealed Home and Attic. Meritage High Performance Home has a semi air conditioned attic with a SUMMER temperature of 80 F. A typical home attic here in the Phoenix, AZ area has a summer temperature greater than 160 F.
5. Energy Efficient Lighting using CFL and/or LED lighting.
6. High Performance Heating and Cooling.
7. Water Conservation. Efficient plumbing fixtures as well as weather sensing irrigation reduce water consumption.
8. Improved Air Quality using low VOC (volatile organic compounds) carpets, paints and finishes.
9. High Performance Windows.
I have been through MANY new home subdivisions over the course of my years selling homes…and I have never been moved to favor any one particular over another. And I would still make sure my clients were exposed to all of the builders in the area and price range in which they were interested . BUT…I would encourage them to make sure and visit this subdivision with me before making a decision! I LOVE GREEN!
It is a really small subdivision they took over from another builder who went out of business…so there are not many lots…and homes are going QUICKLY! Here is a picture of the subdivision map. I think they have sold NINE homes already…and their grand opening is not until next weekend! They only have about fifty-eight lots it appears…so buyers will have to jump in if they want to be a part of this.
Another thing I liked about this experience with my client is the sales rep. Brandye is REALLY high energy…and willing to help in any way she can!
