Posted by Viktoria Dolinaj on October 15, 2020

AUSTIN, TX, October 14, 2020 – Meritage Homes, the seventh-largest public homebuilder in the U.S., today announced new energy-efficient homes are now selling at Water Oak in Georgetown, TX. Water Oak is the homebuilder’s fourth community to open in the Austin area since December 2019 with two additional communities starting construction this year and two more slated in Q1 2021.

With inventory remaining low across the Austin MSA, the timing is perfect to open in Water Oak.

– James Saunders, division president for Meritage Homes in Austin

Situated on the south fork of the San Gabriel river, Water Oak is a thoughtfully designed community with open spaces, greenbelts, nature trails and direct access to adjacent regional parks. With shopping, dining and entertainment options nearby at Wolf Ranch Town Center, Water Oak will also offer future residents an authentic small-town experience at Georgetown’s historical main street. Planned amenities include a clubhouse, meeting room, swimming pool, dog park and trails. Water Oak is zoned for the brand-new Wolf Ranch Elementary School that opened for the 2020-2021 school year.

The sales office at Water Oak is now open with enhanced safety measures in compliance with local, state and CDC guidelines. In addition, homebuyers can manage the entire purchase process online with Meritage Homes’ Virtual Homebuying process which seamlessly guides prospective buyers from research and discovery and, in some jurisdictions, all the way through closing. Along the way, buyers can connect with representatives to learn more about communities, arrange virtual tours, speak to a mortgage professional and much more. Meritage Homes’ goal is to ensure customers feel comfortable in their interactions, whether in-person or online, throughout the buying process.

In addition to Water Oak, Meritage Homes has opened new communities in Hutto, Southeast Austin and Dripping Springs in the past 10 months. Construction is also planned to start between August 2020 and early 2021 at new communities in Leander, South Austin, Round Rock and Buda. These communities are designed to appeal to move-up and first-time home buyers.

With demand for new homes increasing among first-time buyers who want to escape escalating rents, Meritage Homes has designed an entry-level line of homes that include many features typical in more expensive, move-up homes – home automation features, kitchen islands, granite countertops, upgraded cabinets, laundry rooms, plumbing fixtures and appliances. This is in addition to the standard energy features provided by Meritage in every home.

Meritage offers a streamlined home-buying experience for first-time buyers by offering a one-stop sales and design process at the community and simplified packages featuring the latest design trends curated by experts.
