7 Hidden Home Buying Costs
To Look Out For!

Scale balanced with money bag and family inside a house

Before buying a home, you need to make sure you can afford more than just a down payment and monthly mortgage payment. Prepare yourself in advance for additional homebuying costs. And, prior to shopping, contact your Home Loan Expert today so you know what’s in your budget. Shop with confidence and get pre-qualified in minutes and pre-approved in one business day.

Here are 7 additional costs associated with buying a home:

Mortgage Interest
Many variables can affect this cost including your income, credit score, debt, down payment, and length of your mortgage. If you have a low credit score, you can improve it by paying on time and making more than just the minimum payment. A high credit score may help you get a lower interest rate.

Closing Costs
There are some closing costs that are associated with purchasing a new home. Call our knowledgeable Home Loan Experts today for more information.

Property Tax
This tax will vary based on your purchase price and property location.

Maintenance
You should set aside some money for maintenance in case a dishwasher breaks or to replace a fridge. Additional maintenance costs can include house cleaning and yard care.

Private Mortgage Insurance
Depending on your loan type, you may have to pay for private mortgage insurance if you put less than a 20% down payment on your house.

Homeowners Insurance
The cost of your homeowners insurance will differ based on where you live. If you live in an area that is prone to natural disasters, your insurance premium may be higher.

Utilities
Don’t forget to include costs for electricity, gas, water, and trash.
