How much will owning a home cost you?

How Much Will Owning a Home Cost?Once you’ve had your closing when you purchased your home, the biggest outlay of funds is complete.  Whew, you paid for your downpayment and closing costs, and you know how much your monthly mortgage payment will be too.  You’ve budgeted & planned for other monthly expenses, but you will have other expenses when “owning” your home. Home maintenance costs should be in your budget too! 

The average American can spend $1,126 a month on utilities and insurance. As an Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR®), I can help you calculate those fees before you buy a home so that owning a home won’t break your budget. I look forward to working with you!

Here is a great article and great info graphic and explanation for you to review!

Howdy Christine,  Is it coincidence the insurance/utilities are $1,126.00 as well as the $1,126.00 to maintain (maintenace and upkeep?) a home.  Make it a great week ahead.  Mark

Christine, the article pretty much nails the monthly outlay of home ownership.
