Meritage Homes Introduces New Lakeside Phase in Fate Community

(ROCKWALL, TX — August 7, 2019) Meritage Homes, the seventh-largest public homebuilder in the U.S., announced a grand opening celebration to showcase the newest phase in Woodcreek, a highly-desirable, amenity-rich community in Fate, TX. Open to the public, the event will be held Aug. 10 from 12-2pm and will feature local food trucks, family fun and giveaways.

The newest phase in Woodcreek will offer residents an ideal location within the community; adjacent to the Lakeside Amenity Center and onsite Miss May Vernon Elementary school. Priced from the mid $200,000s, Meritage Homes will offer six floorplans with both single and two-story designs that range from 1,659 to 3,100 square feet. Several homes are available for quick move-in.

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 – kitchen islands, home automation features and granite counter tops, as well as upgraded cabinets, laundry rooms, plumbing fixtures and appliances.

“We’re excited to offer first-time buyers in Fate much more than a no-frills entry-level home by incorporating Meritage’s industry-leading energy efficiency and other upgraded features at an affordable price,” said Austin Woffinden, division president for Meritage Homes in Dallas-Fort Worth. “The Lakeside phase is ideal for families looking to be within easy walking distance to the newest amenity center, Miss May Vernon Elementary and more than 30 acres of park space.”

Meritage offers a streamlined home-buying experience for first-time buyers by offering a one-stop sales and design process at the community (no additional trip to a design center is required) and simplified packages for décor and features.
