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 townhomes at Alay are convenient, close to many restaurants, shopping, and even a movie theater. The 125 freeway is also nearby but far enough that I didn't hear it when outside. The townhomes all feature an attached two-car garage, right next to the front door with a private patio/yard in the back, which I like because it's more intimate than having the patio with the front door. The homes are smart home; even the tankless water heater is Wi-Fi ready. The plan one and three features a bedroom on the first floor, and two offer it as an option in Liu of the den. Keep in mind that there is little guest parking. The rules also don't allow you to park in front of your garage, so if your family has more than two vehicles, this may not be the place for you.
