Education / Thanksgiving break?
« Last post by irvinehomeowner on Today at 07:25:27 AM »
I don't know if I'm remembering this correctly, but in IUSD, wasn't the Thanksgiving break the whole week?

Kids only get Wednesday (and the obligatory Friday after) off this year.

Looks like Amazon is opening something in the University Center near UCI.

There are "Amazon.com Coming Soon" on the construction fences.

Sorry... not HQ2. :)

Ate at Piadina... the flatbread is good but the prices are expensive... they also sell pasta.

Visited The Village in Tustin Legacy, Pizza Press wasn't as good as I remember, and at $9 per BYO pie, that's more expensive that the others. Speaking of, Pieology has slightly revamped their menu, the have a smaller kids pizza ($4.99) and now a Detroit Pan pizza ($9.49). The Detroit Pan was interesting, the dough is partly pre-baked and they load it with cheese and toppings first and then add the sauce... it's not as good as I hoped it would be but I'm glad they are trying different things.

The title of this thread sounds like a great name for a rock band.

Visited Altair today, toured Alara.  They did Altair right by not mixing small homes into the community, so, all neighbors would be in similar price range.  (unlike other TIC developments, making all sizes available in the same community, and max out potential buyer pool)

Very nice designs, secondary bedrooms are on the smaller side.  Lots of hallway space and created that spacious home feeling, but also at the cost to the square footage.

Model home backyards are not deep, but very well designed.  Not sure how that would change once the house behind is built.

Met a few who bought there as it's the only gated option zoned to the great park K-8 schools.

I'm sure that's not the only reason. Plenty of $$$ folks who like the community design and floor plan offerings.

I hear Altair is selling like crazy and I don't get it.  Why is that?  Their taxes are so high and their prices are not that great...

Gated. Nice builds. Good plan. They got money.

What’s not to get?

Given her response to you,I believe she knew.She had a fiduciary responsibility to you as your agent and also as "the agent of the seller" she had a legal,professional and ethical responsibility to disclose .Disclosing everything else but "omitting" the asbestos seem very fishy. Like someone said on this post,she can not claim ignorance.

Just want to further add that I appreciate everybody's responses here. I especially like irvine buyer's idea of going to the DRE. I may end up going that route...

Although it's kind of a side issue, here are some details about the furnace situation for those who asked: when the furnace died last month, we contacted Home Warranty of America (HWA) because a warranty was included in the purchase of the house. For $60 they sent out a contractor who determined that the furnace must be replaced because it is "not safe for further use." We had considerable difficulty dealing with HWA and their contractor. After a few weeks of not getting anywhere with them, we finally decided to accept the pathetic sum of $537 to settle the warranty claim.

With HWA and their contractor out of the picture, we had 3 different contractors of our choosing come look at our furnace setup. All 3 of them pointed out the asbestos ducting and said it should be removed because it is broken in several places. Also, the vent pipe is a "transite" pipe which is made of asbestos and must also be replaced.

When we bought this house we understood that it is older and would need some work. We have no problem paying for that because we saved quite a bit of money by buying an older house. The issue is that the presence of asbestos was not disclosed. If that had been disclosed to us, we probably would have bought the house anyway and addressed the situation before moving in. I understand that sellers are not required to remove asbestos, but they are required to disclose it if they know about it. Given the facts that she is a broker, that she had the AC replaced (but not the furnace) and intentionally left item C1 blank on the form, I believe that she did know.
