Search home sites online for your PA new homes

Building a home with enough space, in the right school district with a great commute time are some of the items at the top of a home-buying list. But, just as important for most, is the land on which their PA new home will permanently reside. Regardless of age and family size, the home site one builds on almost always plays a role in the final decision as to where to build.

Some are looking for oversized lots that offer the utmost in privacy. You may be looking for just enough room to enjoy the occasional barbeque and a swing set. Or perhaps you are among those that want as little to take care of as possible. With most home builders, an in-person visit is mandatory to get any type of feel for the land and lots you can build on. But, at S&A Homes, you can get a feel for exactly which lot is perfect for you and your family by utilizing our new interactive lot tool. Read More

PA New Homes Rebound Quickly in Northeast

PA new homes

Pa new home sales on the rise.

Despite the still sluggish job market and conflicting economic news, there is no denying the fact that the PA new home market in the Northeast is trending upwards and quickly. According to an AP News report today, housing for the US shows a modest rise.  In fact, the Commerce Department released reports today indicating that May 2012 marked a 7.6 percent increase in new home sales from April 2012, making it the largest increase since April 2010 when the housing tax credit expired.

To top that off, sales in the Northeast increased 36.7 percent, the most of any region in the country. You may be wondering how such a thing is possible with little to no job gains. There are three main factors driving the increases. The first, low interest rates, offer buyers affordability unmatched previously. The second, low supply, ensures that there is no false inflation in the market. True supply and demand economics work here. And finally, historically low prices have proven that there is such a thing as a bottom to this housing market. Read More

PA New Home Construction is an Easy Process with S&A Homes

Homebuyer testimonial

Ralph and Scott are happy with their PA new home!

Deciding to purchase a new construction home can be a scary adventure for some people. There is always the fear of the unknown – will the builder deliver on their promises? Will my sales rep try to oversell me? How will I know I made the right PA new home decision?

Rather than jump into something like home building blindly, we would recommend that any prospective purchaser talk to one of our current homeowners. After all, what better way to know what the journey will be like than to talk to someone who has walked in those shoes?

We recently received the following note from one of our homeowners that we wanted to share with everyone that may be thinking of building with S&A Homes to help give you an idea of what that experience may be like – thanks Ralph & Scott! Read More
