So today I had to pay all the “fees” required to build a house. This included the following:
Traffic Impact Fee: $8,299.00
Park Fee: $1,000.00
Fire District Fee: $4,132.36
Building Permit Fee: $2,176.00
PAD: $4,000.00 (I don’t even know what in the hell this stands for)
Fire District Plan Check Fee:
Water District meter installation fee: $33,226.00
Sewer Fee: $600
School District Fee:
Are you serious?
$94,742.34 $84,270.67 in “fees” just so you can get permission from the city and various agencies to build a house? This is on top of the $5,545.78 plan check fees already paid, which puts the total at $100,288.12 $89,816.45 and we aren’t even building yet. I wonder if SDG&E is going to charge to install the transformer for electricity (probably). Ouch.
Oh, there is also a “Drainage Fee” that will be due and I have no clue what that amount is going to be yet.
If you were building a house for resale, how does anyone make any money??
