There are so many moving parts to buying and selling real estate. Here are some more things you'll want to consider when planning a home purchase.
When buying property, the amount you'll pay to local government in property taxes. If you're within city limits, you'll pay city and county taxes. Many people confuse the current taxes on a property with what will be paid when purchasing. This incorrect thinking can cause severe sticker shock when the buyer gets the statement showing costs at closing. This document is required by law, yet it's received 3 days before closing.
