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.

These homes are sold with all the appliances you need, like the dishwasher, refrigerator, washer, and dryer, not typical. They also include a lot of smart home features like a smart thermostat, smart door locks, video doorbell, and even an alarm system, definitely not included when purchasing a new home. Also included are quartz countertops in the kitchen. Of course, it includes a lot of the features you'd see at other new home communities like LED can lighting, A/C, etc. I would have like to see solar included and not as a lease option.
