Hidden Home Maintenance Costs - Park Sterling Realty

One of the best pieces of advice our REALTORS® can offer about buying a home is to determine your budget before you start looking. Understanding what you can afford will narrow your search, and keep you from falling head-over-heels for a house that's outside your price range. 

But it's easy to misunderstand what your price range truly is. Buying a home comes with costs that aren't necessarily reflected in the asking price alone. So keep an eye out for these additional homeownership costs, and don't let them trip you up!

  • Property Taxes
    It's easy to simply compare your monthly mortgage payment with what you could be paying in rent, and assume that you can afford it. Maybe you can, but be sure to factor in property taxes. Unless you plan to put a larger down payment down on your home, your property taxes will most likely be added to, and bump up, your monthly mortgage payment. Also, keep in mind too that property taxes are likely to increase over the length of time that you own your home.
