Costs Associated With Home Buying

First-time home buyers might not be aware of additional costs associated with the closing process, so here is a list of costs you should be prepared for:


  • Your down payment. If your down payment is less than 20%, you will also more than likely have to pay for private mortgage insurance.
  • Moving expenses. The cost will depend on how far you are moving and how much you have to move.
  • A home inspection. Your lender will require you to order and pay for this. § Property taxes. You’ll have to pay them annually.
  • Homeowner’s insurance and title insurance. § Maintenance costs. If you were a renter, your landlord paid for maintenance, but now the responsibility is yours.
  • A home warranty. This is insurance you can get that covers repairs and replacement due to normal wear and tear.
  • Utility bills. Monthly charges for gas, water, electricity, telephone, cable, and internet.

By considering these expenses and budgeting for them, you are less likely to be caught off guard.
