May 24, 2018

CHICAGO (May 8, 2018) — Homebuyers will have until the clock strikes midnight to take advantage of special deals and savings at M/I Homes’ 20 Chicago-area communities during the builder’s annual “Midnight Madness” sale on Saturday, May 19. Sales centers will be open from noon to midnight, and prospective buyers can take advantage of a variety of special offers* that will be revealed during the promotion and valid only for this 12-hour period.

“There’s an element of anticipation and surprise that always makes our Midnight Madness promotion a fun way to celebrate the spring homebuying season,” said Curt VanHyfte, area president of M/I Homes. “Buyers are even more motivated to visit our communities knowing they will find out about extra promotions and savings when they arrive. And while we wait until the day of the sale to announce most of the special Midnight Madness deals, we do want to let buyers know in advance that M/I Homes will be paying various amounts of closing costs for qualifying buyers when they use M/I Financial, a subsidiary of M/I Homes that offers financial services and mortgage programs. For anyone considering a home purchase this spring, that alone is a great reason to come and visit one of our sales centers on May 19.”

During the Midnight Madness sale, buyers are invited to tour M/I Homes communities and learn which special deals and promotions are being offered at each one, including having their closing costs covered. Additionally, complimentary pizza and refreshments will be served at all sales centers at approximately 6:30 pm. The Midnight Madness sale will include all of M/I Homes’ active townhome and single-family home communities in the Chicago market.

“Buyers will be excited to know they can take advantage of Midnight Madness deals at some of our newest communities where we just kicked off sales in March, such as Brentwood in Barrington and Woodview in Woodridge,” said Cheryl Bonk, vice president of sales and marketing for M/I Homes. “And for those who have already been home shopping and are considering a purchase at one of our more established communities, such as Fender Place in Lisle or Bergman Pointe in Hoffman Estates, this promotion is an excellent time to reconnect with our sales team about the location they are most interested in and find out what bonuses and discounts are being offered on features, finishes or home sites.”

Homes at all M/I Homes communities come standard with the builder’s industry-leading 15-Year Transferable Structural Warranty, which not only allows buyers to purchase with confidence, but also adds value if the home is sold in the future. All homes are also WHOLE HOME Certified, an M/I Homes designation indicating the builder’s superior approach when constructing homes. Upon testing, an M/I home will receive a more favorable HERS (Home Energy Rating System) score than an Energy Star-certified home, which can save buyers upwards of 30 percent on their energy bills. A lower HERS Index means lower energy costs, and on average an M/I home achieves a HERS rating of 62, considerably lower than other resale homes and other builders in the market.
