“This is a great time for buyers to take advantage of the first available homes at our newest Meritage Homes community, Brookside, in Princeton,” said Austin Woffinden, Dallas division president at Meritage Homes. “Brookside offers an easier, more affordable way into home ownership, while incorporating Meritage’s industry-leading energy-efficient building practices.”

Priced from the low $200,000s, Meritage Homes will offer six floorplans with both single and two-story designs that range from 1,831 to 3,100 square feet. With demand for new homes increasing among first-time buyers who want to escape escalating rents, Meritage offers a streamlined home-buying experience for first-time buyers by providing a one-stop-shop for sales and design at the community. With Meritage Homes’ LiVE.NOW offerings, buyers can select quick move-in options featuring the latest design trends. Currently, every home also includes Meritage Homes’ M.Connected Home™ Automation Suite, with features like Wi-Fi enabled video doorbells, smart door locks, lighting controls, and advanced thermostats. In addition, these homes are built with energy- and money-saving features such as open cell spray-foam insulation, ENERGY STAR® certified appliances, Low-E windows, a fresh air management system and more.

In addition to savings from our energy-efficient features, Brookside buyers may be eligible for certain USDA programs allowing qualifying homebuyers to buy a new home with no down payment and/or low interest rates.

“As the Dallas home market continues to grow, we are focused on keeping home ownership attainable, especially for first-time home buyers,” says Stewart Parker, President of Trophy Signature Homes. “It’s not only about offering buyers visually appealing designs, but also modern features that accentuate your life. Providing these luxury extras that are not traditionally included as standard features is our difference.”

Driven by passion, Trophy Signature Homes was founded to serve the Dallas-Fort Worth market’s ever-growing need for quality, affordable homes. Every Trophy Signature Home offers a unique blend of functionality, design, and value. This means thoughtfully designed communities, state-of-the-art technology, and contemporary floor plans and designs that you can afford. It also means a personal buying experience with the guidance you need to make your new home dreams become a reality.

Trophy Signature Homes sits at the crossroads of fun and functionality with communities in Frisco, Princeton, Crandall, Royse City, Saginaw, Fort Worth, Midlothian, Red Oak, and Waxahachie.
