SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Feb 24, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE via COMTEX) -- Meritage Homes Corporation /zigman2/quotes/209069331/composite MTH +3.25% management will be speaking to investors in New York City at the Wells Fargo Real Estate Securities conference on February 25 and the Evercore ISI Annual Housing and Building Products Conference on March 4, 2020. Discussion materials related to the events may be accessed through the "Investor Relations" page of the Meritage Homes website at http://investors.meritagehomes.com .

Management noted that demand for new homes has remained strong in 2020, as evidenced by 38% year-over-year growth in January orders of 1,019 homes setting a record for the month of January in the Company's 35-year history, despite approximately 8% fewer actively selling communities compared to a year earlier.

Steven J. Hilton, chairman and chief executive officer of Meritage Homes, commented, "The robust demand we experienced in 2019 has continued into this year. Homebuyers' confidence is high and mortgage rates remain at historical lows, making new homes more affordable and allowing more people to purchase their first home or move to a new home that better suits their needs. With our entry-level LiVE.NOW. homes and innovative Studio M design studios for move-up buyers, we make the buying and decorating decisions easier, more transparent and efficient for our customers."
