Closing CostsThe cost to close on a home can be the responsibility of the seller, buyer, or a combination of the two. As you make negotiations on a home, consider these costs into the total amount you are prepared to spend. When it comes time to sign the paperwork and officially purchase the home, your closings costs will be due. You can often times get the cost of closing wrapped into your total loan amount - increasing your monthly mortgage payment a bit.
Major PurchasesAppliances are a big purchase for a new homeowner. If the home you are buying does not come with appliances or you wish to purchase new, this expense can add up quickly. Another big purchase for a new home is furniture. If you are a first-time buyer, you may not have much furniture to fill your new space. It can be helpful to find used furniture if you have a tight budget.
Moving ExpensesNo matter how you decide to move, there is expense involved. If you hire a moving company to transfer your belongings, payment will be needed. If you decide to recruit friends and family to help move your items, you typically will provide food or beverages for them. The expense of gas and/or renting a moving truck can add to the costs associated with moving to a new home.
