2. Boalsburg, PA – Every year, Boalsburg, PA, which is also known as the birth place of Memorial Day, holds its annual festival. It provides music, carnival rides, art vendors and plenty of great food for those wishing to spend the day in this tranquil and scenic village. Read More→
Without a doubt, there are thousands of builders out there. Maybe even tens of thousands, come to think of it. But only a small sliver of those builders are on the 2012 Top 100 Builder list, and an even smaller chunk have been on the list for 2 consecutive years.
The list, recently released by Builder Magazine, compares builders nationwide based upon their total number of closings in order to compile the list. Read More→

It’s one thing to build a beautiful new home. Luxurious interiors, brand new kitchen appliances and a customized layout are just some of the reasons more and more home hunters choose new construction these days. What about the exterior of your new home? Shouldn’t it get the same amount of attention as the inside of a new home?
This month, at S&A Homes, we are giving home buyers no excuse not to have the perfect inside and outside! Anyone who purchases a to-be-built home during the month of May will automatically receive a free deck or patio with their brand new home. What exactly makes this promotion so special? Read More→
With only three home sites left in The Woods of Sewickley Hills, there is little doubt as to why this community has been so popular. Located in Sewickley, PA, and in the heart of the Quaker Valley School District, the community has a lot to offer when it comes to education.
The Quaker Valley School District is the recipient of many awards and accolades, and it was recently recognized as a top school district on the U.S. News (#14 in the state of Pennsylvania in fact). Check out these facts, and figure out why The Woods of Sewickley Hills’ best kept secret is not such a secret anymore! Read More→
Here at S&A Homes, we are used to seeing happy homeowners. But, it’s not every day that one of our customers decides to pop the big question on their recently purchased lot! When Brady proposed to his new fiancé on his just-purchased home site in Rolling Hills Farm (located in West Newton, PA), she responded with a resounding “YES”!
Here is what Brady had to say about his experience with S&A Homes so far:
“We could not be happier with the signing of our new home and engagement! It all started a year ago when we began looking at homes, we would drive to Rolling Hill Farms and admire the houses. We always loved the style of the S&A homes, but we never thought that we would be able to afford a customized home of this caliber. One year later and after trying our hand in previously owned homes, we decided to set up an appointment to see the model home at Rolling Hill Farms and the rest is history.
With Earth Day less than two weeks away, there is more you can do than simply cross the day off on the calendar. Unfortunately, many adults treat this special day as nothing more than a chance for elementary school students to learn about recycling.
In reality, S&A home buyers help conserve the Earth simply by purchasing an S&A home. The leaf in our logo is about a whole lot more than a cool design. It represents our commitment to overall conservation and energy efficiency as a builder.
Most people buying an S&A home may be surprised to know that we have been an ENERGY STAR™ partner since the early 90s, long before the energy efficient bandwagon showed up for other home builders. By choosing to work with third party providers and agreeing to specific energy inspections throughout the building process, we have been building a tighter home for more than 20 years. Read More→
If you’re looking to put a spring in your step, do we have the thing for you! This month, any purchaser of an S&A to-be-built home will be happy to hear they will automatically receive a free upgrade on any Progress® interior lighting package, just to celebrate what we call Light Day Savings!
S&A Homes has been a proud partner of Progress® Lighting for years, and we offer one of the most expansive lighting selections of any builder in the region. Regardless of which package you choose, we will automatically kick in the monies for the next level upgrade, no questions asked. Read More→
Few purchasing decisions could be more important than determining which home builder you should partner with to create a home that will be your family’s safe haven for years to come. Even in today’s information age, the glut of knowledge that is readily available to prospective home purchasers can sometimes make the buying process even more confusing instead of helpful.
Perhaps few benchmarks could help bring more clarity to a purchaser than customer satisfaction survey results. After all, anyone can put up some pretty photos on a website. But, how do you know the claims are real? It is not uncommon for home builders to survey customers after they have moved into their new home. Frequently, home builders choose to mail surveys, fail to follow up and tend to average a response rate that varies from 10 to 40 percent depending on the quality of surveying techniques. Read More→
