It’s Easy to Build on Your Land with S&A Homes

It’s Easy to Build on Your Land with S&A HomesYou’ve done it – you’ve found the perfect homesite! But who can deliver your dream home to your dream location? Did you know that in addition to building quality new homes in some of the most sought-after locations throughout Central and South-Central Pennsylvania, S&A Homes also builds custom new homes on your own land? In fact, a quarter of our business is dedicated to these types of projects.

Because of our proven experience and step-by-step process, the Build on Your Land program from S&A Homes makes it easy to live exactly where you want to live in the home you want. We take the guesswork out of timing, costs and quality.

If you either already own or have identified property where you’d like to build, start by speaking with one of our Sales Representatives about which home you want to build. Before you even commit to building with us, a Project Manager will personally meet with you on site to review the lot and any special considerations. Your Project Manager will also discuss the lay of the land and how to best position your home on the property.

Prior to your purchase, but after the free consultation, the Sales Representative and Project Manager will work together to deliver a cost estimate. In addition to the cost of your home itself, your estimate will include land-related expenses based on site conditions, local codes and availability of utilities. We also show you the construction schedule, so you know what to expect throughout the process.

At this point, our team can work with you to identify financing solutions. Options include traditional construction loans and highly specialized programs depending on your specific needs. We can help you find a lender and a program that will not only work with your project, but also offer good terms.

When you’re ready to move forward, an estimate of costs will become part of your agreement. You’ll spend time with one of our professional designers to select the personal finishes to make your home reflect your personality and lifestyle. Before construction begins, you can review blueprints, selections and paperwork with our team, giving you an opportunity to make changes at no cost. At each stage of the construction process, your Project Manager will provide a refined final estimate of costs for your review.

S&A Homes strives to provide the best, most complete service for homebuyers who build on their own land, just as we do for homebuyers in our developed communities. In that spirit, we oversee every single aspect of construction, including getting bids from sub-contractors and overseeing their work.

From getting the first bulldozer on your property to finishing up the landscaping, our Build on Your Land program ensures decisions are made within a certain timeframe and quality construction measures are followed every step of the way. While we take care of the business of building your home, your only job is to prepare to move into the home of your dreams in the exact place you want to be.
