  1. Find a home you love
  2. Choose your homesite
  3. Design your new home
  4. Select your financing
  5. Meet your builder and start construction
  6. Complete your New Home Orientation and schedule a closing
  7. Refer a friend or family member!

​That was easy! Here’s a little more about each step.

Find a home you love

​At M/I Homes, we’re all about pairing you with your dream home, in your dream location. From our floorplans designed for the way you really live today to building our communities in locations that put you near the action while still being serene enough to come home to, we’re confident we have the right home for you. Browse our plans today!

Choose your homesite

​Do you love the view of plenty of greenspace from your back porch? How about being just a quick walk away from the amenity center? Whatever suits your fancy, we’ll help you find the right setting for your new home. (Then we’ll make sure to take a new photo of you there before the construction starts! Share on social media with the hashtag #WelcometoBetter to show friends and family!)

Design your new home

​With skilled Design Consultants and plenty of inspiring options to choose from, we’ll have you personalizing the finishing touches on your new home in no time! See how we do Better Design.

Select your financing

You’ll never be alone in the financing process, especially when you choose our in-house lender, M/I Financial. We’ll help you get the best rate possible and guide you through every step.

Meet your builder and start construction

Especially if it’s your first time building a new construction home, we know you have a lot of questions—and that’s okay! By keeping you updated on your home’s progress and being easy to reach, we’ll make sure you’re comfortable with the process from start to finish.

Complete your New Home Orientation and schedule a closing

It can seem like a lot, but you’ll be in your new home in no time! Pretty soon you’ll be ready to unpack those boxes and settle into your brand new home. These two final items before getting you there will be quick and painless, especially with our team by your side!

Refer a friend or family member

We love hearing from our Happy Homeowners, and your experience can really help others who are new to new home construction! Photograph your home’s progress, keep a journal of each step, and tell your friends so they can be part of the M/I Homes family, too.

There, that wasn’t so bad, was it? If you still have questions or want more information about our home building process, I’m here to help get you what you need and Welcome you to Better with M/I Homes!
