Explore the Construction Process

We want to help you step into the next chapter of your life while you complete each step throughout the new home building process. With the knowledge of our construction timeline, you and your family can enjoy peace of mind with confidence that you’re making the best possible choices for your new home.

No matter where you are in the process, we are here to empower and support you. Here is a general timeline of what to expect when building a new home with M/I Homes.

*Milestones may vary by location


Meet Your New Home Consultant

You will work hand-in-hand with the New Home Consultant at your community throughout the homebuying process. We can complete this step either in person or virtually. This step begins with reviewing home plans and potential homesites for the best fit for you and your family.

Tips to Prepare for Your First Model Home Tour

Finance Your New Home

Securing financing will depend on the purchase price of your home and the loan options you’re comparing based on your unique needs. Working with our in-house lender, M/I Financial, offers numerous benefits, including additional incentives for closing costs. M/I Financial works seamlessly with the M/I Homes team to make sure the financing process goes as smoothly as possible.
