It's also leap away from the 261, which is why i heard they're selling.

Yea I figured, they had their whole surround system on in the house and outside the house to try and drown out any noise at the showings

Makes sense, that one has the nice pool and landscaping. Plus the kitchen is nicely done.

Here are the Padova model pricing. Seem flexible in the negotiation. All the the furniture in the model homes is included for extra $15K if you close the home in all cash

Got to move the wood/tile/vinyl discussion to one of the many wood flooring threads we have here. Let me go find it.

Hello,
For those that did your flooring after close of escrow, how long did the flooring take? And when can the flooring vendors actually come into your home for accurate estimate?

Thank you.

We had our flooring folks use the virtual tours of the the models to estimate materials and labor for the job. They estimated about a week for the job - which includes demo + hardwood flooring on both floors. We're in a Plan 4.

We had carpet estimated to rip and replace in one day.  Used model home to size our bids/estimates.

I've had buyers who got estimates from their contractors going to the model homes and then scheduled them to come out the day after they closed.  The ones that got flooring, paint, and garage floor epoxy done moved in within 10-14 days of closing on the purchase.

Any warranty issues come up from post-close contractor work? Sure, there is already plenty of talk already about Builder construction issues and warranty claims, but any problems experienced by owners with any of the post close, non-builder sourced upgrades?

For those that have already initiated or secured contractors for landscaping, were they able to do that with just the blueprint from the builders that were emailed during phase release or does the builder have more detailed measurements for each home? Thank you!

No legit (landscaping or otherwise) contractor will quote reasonably without first field verifying measurements.  I would suspect overestimation to cover their costs from just looking at drawings alone.  I don't know if you could dig into the builder or city planning to release a copy of your home blueprints.

We started our housing search seriously a bit later and it looks like Padova is sold out for now. I know that there's about 20-25 buyers under contract for homes that will be completed between March through August. If anyone has to walk away from their contract on Plans 1, 2 or 3 due to extenuating circumstances, feel free to PM me. Would love to help out.  :)

I believe someone mentioned before on here that no one can cut in line. If it falls through during escrow, it will be given to the next person in the priority list. correct me if i'm wrong though.

I think it is to work out something where the original buyer closes escrow and immediately resells to him.
