Why Waste Your Money in a DC Suburb?

Martinsburg, WV homeLiving and working in the DC or Frederick, MD area can be a grind. Between the commute, the high cost of living and demanding hours, it can make living in this area feel like it’s zapping you in more than one way. Just driving 20 miles in the DC Metro area can take hours, not to mention a whole lot of gas.

While most residents think the commuting line ends around Frederick, MD or Baltimore, MD, there are many that do not realize there is a MARC Train route that departs Martinsburg, WV three times each morning, allowing commuters to ease up on the gas bills, tedious traffic jams and nightmarish driving scenarios in bad weather. In fact, the train stops at some of the area’s major work hubs such as Germantown, Rockville, Silver Spring and, of course, Downtown DC.  Read More

Hard to Believe Hardwood Event

Hardwood EventChoosing to build a new home, for many, reflects their desire to make choices. Whether it’s deciding to bump out the kitchen, change a floor color or convert a dining room into a playroom, it is much easier to make changes before a home is built than after.  While choices are a great thing, we personally don’t believe they always need to come with added expense.

During the month of June, any buyer who purchases an S&A Home will have the opportunity to choose from upgraded 5” wide oak hardwood in a variety of five different color choices from the Livingston by Columbia line. It’s more than having choices that makes this promotion special. Read More
