National homebuilder M/I Homes plans to start construction on up to 500 new homes in the Charlotte region in 2018, opening new communities, joining existing neighborhoods, and expanding in still more. The announcement for 2018 reflects M/I’s commitment to the market as well as the area’s strong economy.
“We’ve seen demand continue to go up,” says M/I Division Vice President Alan Beulah. “We attribute the company’s performance in Charlotte to a combination of our desirable locations, record of customer satisfaction, and number of buyers moving to our region. Many of our buyers are moving from other parts of the country or moving to larger homes for their growing families.”
M/I is starting or entering these communities for the first time in 2018:
Walnut Creek in Lancaster, S.C. – Buyers can choose from 164 M/I home sites, with striking streetscapes of ranch-style homes planned from M/I’s Carolina and Park Collections. Homes include lawn maintenance. The Marvin II model home plan can be built with up to five bedrooms and three baths.
Kimbrell Crossing in Fort Mill, S.C. – M/I will offer five different home plans in this gated community close Lake Wylie. Twenty two homesites are available. Construction is underway and presales have begun.
Covington in Indian Land, S.C. – Scheduled to open late spring, Covington will offer 190 home sites and designs from M/I’s Traditional Collection. The Torrance model features a two-story foyer, great room with vaulted ceiling, stone fireplace, master suite on the main floor and three additional bedrooms upstairs.
Bretagne in Indian Land, S.C. – Opening in late spring close to Ballantyne, this community of 133 home sites will offer designs primarily from M/I’s Showcase Collections. These are large family homes with many options, including covered porches on main and secondary levels, outdoor living areas, full brick exteriors, and 3-car, side entry garages all available.
Harlows Crossing in Weddington, N.C. – This new community of 71 home sites from M/I’s Showcase Collection is coming to the intersection of Matthews Weddington and Hemby Roads in the summer. Harlows Crossing features a manor home collection in a country setting, yet it’s close to top attractions, including Cane Creek Park and a four-mile greenway.
Heritage in Stallings, N.C. – Come summer, about 100 new home sites will be ready for purchase in this up-and-coming area. The model home, The Marvin II, is an environmentally friendly design that provides plenty of space on the main floor with an optional upstairs space for a bedroom, home office, or work-out room.
Edenton at Cox Mill, Concord, N.C. – Autumn will bring the development of this new community of 103 home sites, with designs from M/I’s Manor and Traditional Collections.
Edenton is next to Cox Mill Elementary School and close to Concord Mills.
Ramsey’s Glen in Huntersville, N.C. – Eight-five home sites will be available in this community, featuring designs from M/I’s Cottage and Traditional Collections. Choose from two-story home designs and or homes with extensive main floor living space in the Cottage Collection. The family-oriented neighborhood is conveniently located, with nearby access to I-77, restaurants and shopping. Opening late fall.
Allen Mills in Concord, N.C. – Pre-sales have begun in this community of 283 home sites. Buyers can select from nine different home plans, including ranch and two-story designs. Allen Mills is adjacent to Cox Mill Elementary and across the street from Cox Mill High School.
M/I is expanding with new phases in these three communities:
Blume in Harrisburg, N.C. – More than 100 home sites are available in The Magnolias, a new phase of this popular community. The newly introduced, four-sided brick Manor Collection of homes will range from 3,592 to nearly 5,275 square feet, with five bedrooms and 2.5 to five bathrooms.
Heritage at Neel Ranch in Mooresville, N.C. – Two new model homes, The Edison from M/I’s affordable Smart Series and the Newport II from M/I’s Carolina Collection, will open in late spring in this community’s new phase. Thirty-three home sites are available. The Smart Series features value-engineered floor plans that make the most of your living space.
MillBridge in Waxhaw, N.C. – M/I has opened a new phase of 166 home sites in this master-planned community that’s getting lots of media buzz. MillBridge was voted N.C. Community of the Year for 2017 by the N.C. Homebuilders Association. Some reasons why: its winding paths, inviting parks, and award-winning amenity center with Junior Olympic-size lap pool, water slide, and lazy river, not to mention the full-time activities coordinator to keep everyone entertained.
