In planning to buy a home, everyone plans for a down payment; but there are lots of other hidden costs of buying a home.
Some things to think about:
1) Home Inspection
2) Radon Test
3) Sewer Scope
4) Homeowner’s Insurance
6) Closing Costs
7) Refrigerator, Washer, Dryer
9) HOA Dues
10) Water bill
11) Garbage bill
If you have owned a home in the past, you may already be use to paying things that the landlord might pay for a renter (HOA dues, cable, water & garbage bills)
Plus you may already have a refrigerator, washer & dryer if the owner of the home you are buying doesn’t leave those items (that will be spelled out in your contract with the owner.)
