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.

Laurel Creek is one of the weirdest planned communities I've visited, especially considering how small it is with only sixty-five homes encompassing it. The first prominent feature that stands out is the large pedestrian bridge that goes over the creek that divides the community. On the positive side, I thought the bridge was beautiful and added character; it also gives excellent views of the lush creek filled with brush and trees. The recreation center was odd; it's a small gated area with a spa and a small community center where you'd be lucky to fit four people comfortably. Obviously, this increases the HOA fee, which I would have rather not had these amenities in trade for a lower cost. The homes also seem to be close together with minimal yards.

Upside

  • Quiet neighborhood

  • No Mello Roos

Flipside

  • Not gated

  • Odd recreation center with spa and no pool

  • Minimal room between homes
