If it isn’t bad enough just trying to find a decent house for a decent price these days, once you find one, you need to grapple with additional issues.
This note was left in the comment section of a youtube video on Carlsbad McMansions:
I’ve done lots of work for class action lawsuits in Carlsbad where many of these Mc Mansions were built on fill or in areas with substantial groundwater issues. I’d be wary of buying anything in Carlsbad without getting a reputable geologist to sign off on the property as sound and stable. Being told they need to cough up $100k+ for repairs tends to make some people very angry. Make sure and research class action lawsuits in the development you are interested in BEFORE you put in an offer.
