112 long fence has some trippy 70's cabinets.

106 long fence has what look like the old 2001 standard birch / oak cabinets.

They should have just used either white or dark wood shaker and kept it neutral.

is Capella having hard time selling?  I see many homes on Redfin and some have price drops.

From what I heard about a month or so ago, they sold about half their inventory. Not sure where they're at now, but that doesn't seem too shabby considering the price point.

Yeah I have no idea where they are at.  I went to look at it when it first opened and havent looked into it again.  I just looked it up recently and saw this.

I think there are three or four others on redfin that I didnt link.  Those that I didnt link did not have any price history however.

November 2013- paid $1700 for 1.5 cu ft system with Fleck 5800 valve and reverse osmosis system for the drinking water at the sink.

I had considered the Eco Water from Costco, then got an education that you pay more for the proprietary systems/parts.

We have SCE, and that was when we first moved here and didn't know about the discount they give you on having the box on the ac. We had them, but didn't realize it had to be activated. Now that I think of it that may have also been the same time we started using an old fridge in the garage for storing my husband's beer - and he thinks it makes little impact on our bills.

Our past 2 bills were around $150, and each month included around a $70 discount for the a/c cycling, and $5 for the Save Power days discount. With having the Nest thermostat, we signed up for the discount where we allow the nest to pre-cool the house before one of the Save Power days events, but I'm not sure where that comes in. Most times I had the upstairs set at 83 or 85.

With the heat waves we've been having, I've been giving in and running the air more, and setting it at lower temperatures to combat the heat of the sun through the windows. I have 16 days remaining on my bill. According to SCE, my bill "to date" is $129. My projected next bill, based on the average daily usage, is $334.

Maybe it's because there are so many options available near Capella's price point within Orchard Hills?

Hmmm... Sounds like a page from USC Trojan's playbook:

Setting prices artificially low leads to some guesswork for buyers. Nora Dahr and Firas Azmeh have been looking for a four- or five-bedroom house for themselves and four children in Menlo Park, Palo Alto or Los Altos. The couple, who moved to the Bay Area from Texas for Mr. Azmeh’s job at a mobile-security company, have put in seven offers and increased their budget from $2.5 million to just under $3 million with a large cash down payment and no contingencies. “The challenge now is that sellers aren’t even willing to accept asking price these days,” she said. “You’re almost bidding blindly as to what they want, which encourages you to come in way above ask."

Mr. Lynn said underpricing can drive traffic and create momentum, but he has also seen it backfire. “Sometimes Realtors end up with egg on their faces” if a home gets no offers or only one low offer, he said. “It’s basically like you’re a Hollywood producer and you didn’t do well at the box office.” Other agents say if a home receives no offers, they’ll take the counterintuitive step of raising the price, as a way to indicate to buyers the price they’re willing to accept.
