What do cars, homes, insurance, and children all have in common? They all have hidden costs.
I’m not trying to rain on your parade… but if you think you’re set to buy your dream house, be aware that you’re most certainly going to be paying a lot more than just your down payment and mortgage! Home ownership accrues a number of expenses, including property taxes, HOA fees, repairs and maintenance costs, and many more. Of course, this doesn’t mean you can’t buy your new dream house. It just means you’ll need to be a little bit more prepared, that’s all!
