Community Facilities Districts (CFDs), commonly known as Mello-Roos, are a form of financing that can be used by cities, counties, and special districts. CFDs are formed to finance major improvements and services by raising money through special taxes within the district.

Yes. A “Notice of a Special Tax” is provided to residents annually that includes the current year’s maximum tax for the parcel, the rate at which that maximum tax may increase per year, and the final date in which special taxes may be collected for bonded indebtedness.

  4. New Appliances Included & Installed: CalWest homes come standard with a stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, and more.

A turn-key residence is ready for move-in from the moment you purchase and are ideal for those who want a quick and low maintenance home. You can conveniently move into a new home featuring designer-selected finishes, furnishings, and amenities. CalWest model homes are the epitome of turn-key living with full landscaping, upgraded countertops and lighting, and professionally selected furniture, accessories, art, and interior plants.

A pre-sale home is sold as construction is in progress, which affords buyers to make customizations and have more control over their final residence while watching the process until the end. Pre-sale residences allow additional time to put away money for the home and are great for contingent buyers who need to sell their home prior to purchase.
