Life in a S&A Home

There aren’t many decisions that are more important
than the investment you make in your new home.

We recognize this and it’s one of the reasons we are always ahead of the curve, building forward.

We include the industry’s newest and most effective technology innovations and approach energy efficiency from a whole-house performance perspective to exceed EnergyStar™ standards. Combine that with our award-winning, superior building practices and you can rest assured that no stone will be left unturned when it comes to delivering an optimal home to you and your family.

Increased Resale Value

Our dedication to ensuring your home includes cutting- edge energy efficiency, eco-friendly materials and the latest technological advances increases your home’s resale value an average of 5% or up to $20,000.

ORIGINAL HOME VALUE (IN THE $100,000S)

Avg. Annual Utility Costs for an S&A Home: $2,311

Avg. Annual Utility Costs for Typical Used Home: $3,675

Average Annual Savings: $1,364

Annual Savings

Many homebuyers mistakenly think all new homes are built to the same standards. Unfortunately, those living in a code- built new home will waste thousands of dollars on additional utility expenses compared to an S&A Homeowner over a 7-year period. In fact, the average S&A Home is 45% more efficient than a standard code-built new home. This can translate to hundreds of dollars, even thousands, saved every year depending on where you live.*

* This information does not constitute any warranty of energy cost of savings and is presented for comparison purposes only. Savings are average estimates for single family homes located in the S&A Homes Sales areas.
The amount of savings will vary based on house type, house size, lot orientation, local utility rates, climate conditions, and owners operation of home.

Third Party Verification

The proof of your home’s efficiency is in its Home Energy Rating Score (HERS), provided by a third-party verification firm for every home we build. This critical piece of information provides your home’s specific energy score and efficiency details. With HERS, a high score indicates excessive waste and expensive utility bills while a lower score indicates the home is built to optimize energy efficiency and lower utility expenses.

With HERS, Lower is Better
