Mello-Roos is an additional cost to pay for community improvements like schools and streets etc., applied to regular property taxes for a set period between 20 to 40 years. The IRS typically doesn't allow you to write Mello-Roos off as you would with property taxes, so make sure you know the yearly cost before purchasing; they can be as high as $600 per month.
Solar should be included; builders pay bulk pricing for solar. Yes, they work it into the new home price, but it usually makes little noticeable difference to the monthly mortgage payment compared to your two to six hundred dollar electric bill.

The new town-homes at Fringe are in the elegant and upcoming Novel Park community. The town-homes' exterior style has a contemporary style with attractive vertical and horizontal standing seam wall panels. I'm also impressed that with the use of the tall corner windows, they implemented instead of the generic windows that most builders use. As far as the area, the schools are all highly ranked, and the crime score is quite better than the national average. The guest parking seems to be minimal, which is typical of town-home communities, but these have up to four bedrooms; you may want to keep your options open if your family will require more than two vehicles. Unfortunately, they didn't plan for more storage room in the garage. It would have been nice to have room for a golf cart. Most HOAs have strict parking rules, so make sure and look at the CC&R's & ByLaws before purchasing -The sales agent is required to provide copies if you request them.
