WV and PA New Homes Honored for ENERGY STAR Features

At S&A Homes, we don’t like to celebrate Earth Day just once a year. Instead, we look for every opportunity to promote sustainability and educate buyers about our energy efficient WV and PA new homes. From our collaboration with the Best Practices Research Alliance to construct the first net-zero energy Lab Home to building our E-Home for buyers just like you every day, we strive to do our part in promoting energy efficient construction and protecting the environment. Now, we are excited to announce that we received a 2012 ENERGY STAR Leadership in Housing Award for our hard work!

This year, the EPA is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the ENERGY STAR program. For the past 20 years, the ENERGY STAR program has helped millions of Americans and countless businesses save energy and money while protecting the environment. Last year alone, more than 127,000 ENERGY STAR certified homes were constructed and Americans saved almost $400 million on their utility bills.

Leigh McGraw inspects the construction of her State College new home.

When buyers choose to build their PA new homes with us, we make sure that they know what’s happening in the construction process every step of the way. From our website that has information about getting started, customizations, what’s going on behind the walls of your new home and financing solutions to home walkthroughs with your project manager, you’ll know that your home is constructed efficiently and at the highest quality possible, giving you and your family peace of mind.

Recently, the project manager from our State College office, Chad Rimmey, took the McGraw family on a walkthrough of their new home. At only 74 construction days, many of the home’s features are already in place, including the home’s wine rack. The McGraw family was so pleased with the construction process that they decided to send us this quick note:

Thanks Chad and the S&A crews. The house is coming along wonderfully.”

Pittsburgh New Homes Popular Among Home Buyers

Everywhere you look, you see information about how today’s housing market is a buyer’s market, but is it really a good time to buy PA new homes? Or, is it more cost effective to continue to rent and wait a bit longer? Well, according to Trulia’s Winter 2012 Renter vs. Buy Index, buying a home is now cheaper than renting!

The report is based on asking prices for rental and homes that are for-sale on Trulia.com between Dec. 1, 2011 and Feb. 29, 2012. And, guess what folks? Among the cities on the list in which it is better to buy than to rent is Pittsburgh, PA! We have several communities that are perfect for those who are shopping around for Pittsburgh new homes.

Thank You for Designing and Building Our Dream House

PA New Homes

Thank You for Designing and Building Our Dream House

Here at S&A Homes, we pride ourselves in building quality WV and PA new homes for our buyers. We want to make sure that all of our buyers feel like they are taken care of. We work hard to provide individualized attention to each family during the home building process, and it warms our hearts to hear that our hard work is paying off.

We recently heard some feedback from Mike and Malissa Martin from State College, PA about their experience building an S&A home. Below is what they have to say.

“We just wanted to send you a quick note to say how happy we are with S & A. Thank you so much to S&A for designing and building our dream house. It has only been about 3 weeks since we broke ground and everything is moving so quickly. We went from having an empty lot to an entire framed, sided, and brick-started house in less than 3 weeks. We couldn’t be happier with Matt when it came to designing our house, especially our kitchen. He was really patient with us, had answers to all of our many questions, and went above and beyond our expectations. Sara was also great with helping us to pick out our interior and exterior color and material selections when designing. We didn’t know where to start, and she made the process very easy. Chad, our Project Manager, has had all the contractors and materials ordered ahead of time to keep the process moving quickly. He is wonderful to work with. We couldn’t be happier with this whole process and how quickly everything is moving! Thank you!”
