3 story home makes it a no-go for me. Can't you have a basement instead? Also, only a 2 car garage in 3,700 sq ft is no good. Not counting the third floor, a 3700 sq ft home has a floorplan almost identical to my 2000 sqft home. Are you counting the garage and loft in the square footage??

The garage does not count in the square footage, but the loft does.
Only two of the floor plans have roof top decks, the other three floor plans are two-story homes.

Nancy Pelosi got relected as the Democrat leader for the House of Rep.

This ineffect rejects the voters call for change. I read an article the GOP are happy Pelosi won.

Any thoughts peppy?

I don't have a problem with that. There is a bit of a rift but she still got elected on a roughly 2:1 split. Not sure what it is that you are trying to get at ...

The problem with that the same leadership is in place and meaning the same strategy will be the same. They did not win the presidency, and did not win the senate majority.  Like I previously said, because they are leaving out the blue collar worker.

If Ellison wins the DNC chair, don't even think about winning 2020.

As the minority leader under the Bush administration she is well suited for the job. She will be effective at spearheading an opposition to the privatization of Medicare the same way she did in 2005 when a Republican administration tried to turn Social Security into "personal accounts".

Why is our GDP growth stays around 1%?

GDP in Q3 increased by 3.2%.

Speaking of LR, these quinterra homes are below the higher elevation LR section and nestled in between the 241 ridge.

Probably can wheel and deal to have a great value home if you like the secluded part of town

IMO too many options in the area at this price range.  Similarly priced homes on the older side of PS between Arrowhead and Ridge Valley are also on the market for long periods.  A buyer looking in the low to mid $1MM range also has a lot of new inventory to choose from, esp in the Great Park.  Lambert Ranch is the only community in the area that is selling well despite the abundance of options.  Must be the lack of MR and the guard gate.

I'm wondering if Irvine Pac is listing this Mulberry house (I thought they were all sold out):  https://www.redfin.com/CA/Irvine/54-Pinetree-92620/home/103637023


Ha ha, I don't think this is listed by the builder, at least they will post better pics.

At $539/sq.ft, this is just crazy.  Wait a minute, this is a plan 2 isn't it?  Well now come to think of it, I think this is a pretty decent asking price.  :)

This one is listed again for sale and now its $557/s.f., $1.35M

At least they provide better pic this time.  It's nicely upgraded though.

BTW Scuba, this is that home with M5 and GT3 park at the curve right?

The original owners sold already. These are new owners flipping the house. 

The owners of the GTR/M5 are in a different house. 

I'm not sure how much they'll get for this. The bigger Plan 3 on Acorn listed for 1.3M and sold for less than 1.2M.

I agree it's not bad of a home and it's a good value if one can overcome the negatives mentioned above.

Another thing going against these sales is that there are a lot of good alternative in the market right now.  Cressa for example, would be a good alternative to the Quinterra.  Around the same price range, also in the PS but in a more ascessable location.

Around Town / Re: Cuz when you buy a M6, rules don't apply to me

It's a 4 door gran coupe M6.  Not sure what you mean by not a 'real M6'.  It's still a M6 albeit with 2 more doors for easier access to shove my mistresses in for a backseat quickie on a Wednesday afternoon.   Both cars advertised as 0-60 4.1secs while only the convertible, always heavier, is rated at 0-60 4.3 secs.

I hope you bought a manual transmission.

The paddle shifters are just as good  :)

That probably means you can't drive a manual.  Its a lost art these days.

True, you got me. Does that mean I'm out for the future ferraris and lambos - are these still traditional stick or paddle shifters?

No manual for Lamborghini nor Ferrari.  Actuall no super cars offer stick  anymore.  Not even Porsche Turbo nor GT cars.

American loves manual but European think manual are for economy cars, luxury and high priced cars need some sort of high tech automated transmission.
