Prospective buyers shopping for a new home in Greater Houston can schedule a private appointment or simply walk right into one of M/I Homes’ sales offices. Communities and model homes are now open, but protective guidelines are in place to keep guests and New Home Consultants safe. 

The developer is recommending that visitors wear a face mask, although they’ll happily provide you with one upon request. They also ask that hands be washed and sanitized before you visit. Social distancing will be practiced throughout the tour, which should be limited to key decision-makers only.

If you’re ready to purchase a new construction single-family home this spring, consider one of the following M/I Homes communities in the Houston area.

First-time buyers looking to make the move from renting to owning will want to check out Tavola in New Caney, which offers new three- to five-bedroom homes priced from $195,990. This master-planned community in Northeast Houston boasts a state-of-the-art recreation center with a community pool, a park with its own clubhouse and zip line, and miles of wooded greenbelt trails to explore. Six quick move-in homes are currently available for those with shorter timelines.

Sienna in Missouri City was recently named the #1 community in Texas. This collection of stately, brick-clad residences is situated within a 10,000-acre master-planned community with world-class amenities and on-site schools. Homes start from $237,990 and feature high ceilings, sliding door patios, fireplaces, lofts, half-story additions and two-car garages (as per plan). Sienna is part of the award-winning Fort Bend Independent School District, where students and schools are regularly recognized for academic and extracurricular excellence.

Future residents of Magnolia Ridge in southwestern Montgomery County will be able to customize their new build homes down to the paint color of the front door. Starting from just $178,740, these three- to six-bedroom homes are situated on 45-, 50- and 60-foot-wide lots and come with an industry-leading 10-year transferable structural warranty. The charming city of Magnolia is home to two world-class breweries, a tree-shaded, half-mile pedestrian walkway, and a bi-weekly farmers’ market that offers locally-grown produce and handmade artisan goods. 

Rosehill Reserve in nearby Tomball is conveniently located just five minutes from Grand Parkway (Highway 99) and seven miles from downtown.
