This Earth Day, Meritage Homes released findings from a recent survey1 on sustainable home consumer preferences. The survey found that consumers expect new homes to be sustainable and come standard with a suite of features that are energy-efficient, while also beneficial to their health, the environment and their energy bills.

70% of survey respondents say it is important for them to live in a home that is energy-efficient—e.g., includes ENERGY STAR® appliances, spray foam insulation, and other similar features. Health is also a key focus for consumers with over 70% of respondents stating a multi-speed HVAC and advanced indoor air quality are important. Beyond home features, consumers expect homebuilders to be committed to sustainability. According to the data, more than two-thirds of respondents are likely to purchase from a company whose environmental messaging and/or practices align with respondents’ personal beliefs.

“These survey findings show that sustainability is top-of-mind for homebuyers,” said Phillippe Lord, CEO of Meritage Homes. “Energy-efficient features are no longer nice-to-haves, but table stakes and more will be expected. At Meritage, we’re committed to providing customers with energy-efficient homes at an affordable price.”

1 Survey methodology: Data is based on a survey conducted in partnership with SWNS and fielded between March 16-21, 2022 among 2,000 men and women between the ages 18-55+.
