Meritage Homes recognized for excellence in homebuyer satisfaction

The Avid Awards are regarded as a trusted benchmark of customer service performance in the homebuilding industry. Homebuilders throughout the North America are honored with the prestigious awards for scoring highest with their customers on homebuying experience surveys. Every homebuyer survey in Avid’s database is meticulously analyzed to determine each builder’s Avid Index Score, which is evaluated using scores from the total homebuying experience, the willingness to refer, and the actual number of recommendations a buyer has made.

For more than 35 years, Meritage Homes has made customer satisfaction a cornerstone of its business. The company works coast-to-coast to make the homebuying journey easy and accessible for all buyers. Meritage Homes has been dedicated to the relentless pursuit of building better, smarter, healthier homes through game-changing, money-saving energy efficiency, thoughtful design and higher building standards.

Meritage Homes’ Southern California Division was recognized with the Avid Diamond award and the Denver division received an Avid Gold award. Both are honored for having the highest new home move-in experience in their respective regions.

In addition, Meritage Homes’ Austin, Houston, San Antonio, Tucson, Orlando, Charlotte and Northern California divisions all received an Avid Benchmark award and were recognized for scoring among the top 25% of homebuilders in the U.S. for new homeowner experience and customer satisfaction nationwide.
