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 Saddlewood is in Murrieta, California, with over eighty homes, it's somewhat a large community in an open area with nearby trails and hills. Close enough to Temecula for fun, but far enough to keep it quiet and conservative. The one-to-two-story home features medium to large-sized yards, which can be challenging to find these days in California. Murrieta can get hot in the summer, so I'm surprised they didn't include solar.
The community recreation center is one primary reason I'd buy a home at Audie Murphy Ranch. The entrance has an attractive board and batten style recreational building for entertaining. Once you enter, there is endless fun with amenities like the resort-inspired pool, tot lot, ping pong, fire-pits, and cornhole. Also, along all the trails, you'll see outdoor workout equipment.

Upside
