Purchasing a home is not just about acquiring a place to live; it’s also a significant financial decision. Interestingly, buying a home can simultaneously achieve two key financial goals. Let’s explore what these are and their implications.
Prepaid costs, or ‘prepaids,’ in real estate refer to expenses paid in advance at the time of closing, including homeowners insurance premiums, property taxes, mortgage interest, and escrow account funding. It’s essential to distinguish prepaids from the down payment, as the former covers specific upcoming expenses while the latter contributes to home equity. Understanding these costs helps budgeting accurately and can be a negotiation tool, particularly in areas with high property values like Northern California.
