Building On Your Lot – Find out How Easy it Really Is

S&A new homeWhat happens if you fall in love with a floor plan or home but you aren’t so interested in a specific community? Or maybe you don’t want to live in a neighborhood at all – maybe lots of acreage down a winding dirt road paints a better picture of your ideal home. For those seeking something a bit more outside the box, a solution is not far from reach.

S&A Homes’ Build on Your Lot program puts all of our available floor plans at your fingertips to build on your piece of land. While many builders may claim they do the same, no program is as streamlined or as customer-friendly as ours. The secret is that we don’t ask our customers to manage the home building project the way most new construction providers will. Instead, you will have a project manager working for you, negotiating costs and choosing the most reputable vendors to complete the work in a timely and high-quality fashion. Read More

How To Host a Successful Thanksgiving Dinner

How-To-Host-a-Successful-Thanksgiving-Dinner-1T-minus two days until Thanksgiving! If you’re planning the big meal and are feeling stressed, just read on. We have a few how-tos on hosting a successful event for your friends and family.

Our number one tip is to not do it all alone. From decorating the house to prepping dinner to cleaning up, allot certain tasks to family members. That way, you don’t have to worry about making the beds or tidying up the kids’ rooms when you’re about to cook one of the best meals of the year.

Our second tip to you is to ask your guests to bring the sides. Does your grandma make the best sweet potato casserole? Maybe your brother has a knack for baking pies. Ask guests to bring a favorite dish. Turkey and stuffing is plenty to have cooking in your oven. Read More

Financing Options Abound in South Central Pennsylvania and Martinsburg, West Virginia

USDA Financing Available You are probably sick of hearing it, but record low interest rates continue to abound. According to many sources, they may not last a whole lot longer. For those who are just entering the home market or starting to think about their first purchase, this can be a serious dilemma.  Save up 20 percent for the down payment and risk that interest rates rise dramatically or take a lesser home in order to take advantage of the most affordable financing rates in years?

What if you didn’t have to take either risk?  Wouldn’t you prefer to live in the house you really want, but without having to wait to save up your 20 percent down payment?  Read More
