For a condo that I purchased in Irvine in the past, the majority of units were investor owned. As a result, not all lenders could fund the loan or charged higher interest rate. My Realtor was knowledgeable about this and helped me find the right lender.

I don't think they have a choice with a new build, and any new builds after 2020 you're stuck with what the builder chooses I assume and there is no opt out.  Basically builders make more $ off solar and the solar companies can upcharge on the builders.  Buyers are screwed. 

Do you guys like paying $15-20k upfront for your electricity at a home you might move out before using all those paid money?

CA screwing its own residents? ya don't say... ::)

Man, another reason to buy before 2020 if you're going to buy new build SFR? No wonder people say 2021 will have a recession.

Nope. Sounds like a sales gimmick.
Regarding world economy look at Argentina and Germany.

I don't really know much about this solar system, but for me, paying monthly makes more sense than paying everything upfront especially for electricity. JMHO.

@meccos:  Your math is getting worse.

LOL.  You still dont know why I called you a simpleton huh?  Hint:  has to do with YOUR math.

Sure. Show me then.

People who resort to name calling usually do so because they can’t back up their posts.

You tend to use the extreme numbers rather than averages that reflect the actual reality.

Rather than factoring multiple things and not just the data seems more like a simpleton approach to me.

Me calling you a simpleton has nothing to do with the numbers I use (although the number I used was literally the median price drop taken from trulia), but rather your inability to do simple analysis to back your points.  Rather than trying to obscure your shortcoming with inaccurate claims about me, perhaps you should review your own statements first.

I agree his counter arguments are not that strong. It’s like trolling at it’s best.

General Real Estate and Mortgage Talk / Re: How important is owner occupancy rate?
« Last post by TCT on August 19, 2019, 12:31:43 PM »
We’re just buyers ourselves, but we were told by our broker and a couple agents to make sure and ask about owner occupancy before finalizing. They mentioned that it shouldn’t be a big issue in most areas of CA, but it can be in some areas of Irvine due to investors.

Honestly not something we thought about at all when looking at houses, but maybe it is a bigger deal than we thought.

Saw the crazy long line waiting for Marugame Udon today at South Coast Plaza.  So what’s the deal with this eatery?  Are they that good?

Apparently they just opened a few weeks ago but the wait line is pretty impressive, longer than DTF.

For those who attended KCON 2019 at Staples Center this past weekend, bring your ticket stub and get 20% off at Marugame Udon until Sept 30th.

So the finished build date just has to be after Jan 1 for this to be forced. We’ll have to ask about this because we were not told about this when asking for price quotes on homes due to be finished by December. Maybe they are that confident they won’t get pushed into 2020?
