    Making $150K is considered 'lower middle class' in these high-cost US cities

    Arlington, VA at #1 is really surprising.

    Olivewood at Portola Springs by New Home Co.

    Must be because of the proposal by US Treasury Department's Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) to require real estate professionals to flag suspicious activity seen in cash residential home purchases. So they need to buy before the proposal is finalized. 😂

    Shea also barely raised the prices on Cielo, so they're also sold out. One thing is that Shea started adding lot size premium starting from phase 9, which made the people buying in phase 8 extremely happy. Two Plan 3 homes in phase 8 sold for $3.0M, one having 6582 lot size and the other one...

    Arbor and Cielo had new releases today. Shea didn't really raise base price of Arbor, so of course it's completely sold out.

    I'm blown away by the number of people still buying Olivewood at these prices:

    Personally, I think high ceiling adds the luxurious feel. Since Cielo Plan 3 already has a Bonus Room and its Primary walk-in closet is big, there's no reason to make changes to the floorplan just for that. It made sense for Azul Plan 3 because its Primary walk-in closet wasn't a rectangular...

    Since the view lots are bigger than the non-view lots, it's entirely possible to add the covered deck since they have enough room to the back wall. It will definitely add some extra view lot premium too. :ROFLMAO:

    Yeah, I would have preferred the older Plan 3, which had a Bonus Room and high ceiling. To me, the lack of high ceiling makes it less luxurious. And yes, Cielo homes are superior to Azul homes. Lots are way bigger. My lot at 5107 sq ft is considered average size in Cielo.

    I agree that Plan 3X on the view lot is nice. However, there won't be a covered deck outside of Bonus Room. However, this Plan 3X is not on the view side. The one released on phase 5B will be a view lot, and quite a bit larger lot as well. That one will probably go for $3.6M, since these...

    The footprint doesn't change. Like I mentioned, they added Bonus Room in lieu of high ceiling. The Bonus Room is a bit more than 400 sq ft, which brings it up from 3125 sq ft to 3552 sq ft. As for the backyard, it's still bigger than most Olivewood homes since a lot of them are 3600 to 3800 sq...

    Azul released phase 5A, with 3 homes. Cal Pac mades changes to Plan 2 (now 2X) and Plan 3 (now 3X). Plan 2X removes the Den between Bedrooms 2 and 3 and convert it to dedicated Baths for BD 2 and BD 3. Previous Bath that was shared between BD 2 and BD 3 now becomes part of Primary walk-in...

    Actually, the standard is 11 panels. It's what IP did also, so Shea just did the same. I only chose 9.6kW before because I was charging two cars and the cost was cheaper per kW if I chose 9.6kW (~$2.6/W) instead of 4.8kW (~$2.9/W).

    Yes, any community that started after 2020 must include solar panels, either by purchase or lease. We decided to purchase. However, it only comes with a 4.07kW system (11 panels). My current system at Bluffs is 9.6kW (24 panels) and I want something similar, which is why I said "additional solar...
