I think for the pricing, HOA fees and MR, I would probably go with Serrano Summit Covera over CalPac's Lapis, if I were to buy an investment property to rent out.

We looked at Soria and Toll Brothers' Meadows and decided against it because we didn't want to live in a neighborhood surrounded by commercial buildings. But if I were to rent, then the Meadows is really convenient.

We almost got on Sierra's priority list, but also decided against it because we think IP homes are higher qualify than CalPac's. So right now, we're just staying on Bluffs and Highland priority list.

We were offered Bluffs 1, but after agonizing over the decision for a couple of days, we decided that we really wanted to loft in Bluffs 2 and Highland 1, so we declined the offer. So we pretty much narrowed down our focus to Bluffs 2 and Highland 1. We prefer Highland 1 because it has driveway, but if we're offered Bluffs 2 first, then we'll take it since we can't really handle the price increase every phase.

Any update on getting made whole?
Pricing is basically what Delano prices are but the HOA is over $500/mo on both Plan 2 & 3. 
I'm not sure of the pricing for the other two models, I was only told the cheapest one is $850K for Lapis but in the email I received today says $875K.

Dr. Fauci seems to think that Omicron has spread to the U.S., but we haven't seen a spike yet, so we'll see.

But we know for sure that it has reached Germany, UK, and Netherlands since those countries are seeing a spike. Even France is seeing a spike.
What are the prices on Lapis plans 2 and 3? I would guess the price/sq ft is a lot lower on those. They seem a lot more desirable as well at 2000+ sq ft.

I’m a bit meh about the new variant.  Not that it isn’t concerning, but I pretty much assume it’s already out and global.  Britain, Germany, Amsterdam, Israel all have confirmed it’s there already. 

If we look at Michigan, it’s current spike is a bit abnormal compared to other States’ Delta surges.  Not in intensity, in reports that 25%-30% of the people in the hospital are vaccinated.  I wonder if they’ve been sequencing or just assuming it’s still delta.  This UofM graphic isn’t out of the ordinary for what I’ve seen with the current surge.

It’s too late on Omicron.  Containment isn’t an option.  We’re just going to need to buckle up, identify the rates like the graphic above and figure out how bad the exposure is for each group.

Hi All,

I have been following Portola Springs real estate and talk Irvine forums for awhile but have never posted before.  I currently own a condo in Portola Springs and I've been looking to buy another condo as an investment and was pre-authorized by LoanDepot (Calpac preferred lender) for Lapis model-1, but I am shocked by the asking price @ 875,000.00 for 1172 sqft.  I was wondering what justifies such a price? if the asking price is correct they are asking $746/sq ft for a tiny town house probably located in the worst part of Portola Springs.  Would this even be a right decision as an investment property? Thank you

I thought about picking up ZM after the big drop post earnings. Wonder if Nu variant will have any effect on WFH.
Hey Martin,

Did your father go and sign up today?  Get to see the model homes?

Martin is visiting his dad in Vegas. He's probably going in next week.

Did you get the see the model homes? How do they look? Is plan 3 to your liking?
