“The financial decision of whether or not to purchase real estate needs to consider the entire bundle of costs associated with the home purchase and ownership. Those that do not consider property taxes do so at their peril. Unfortunately, property taxes are all too often overlooked by homebuyers when considering whether or not to purchase real estate. Real estate taxes vary significantly from one town to another and from one state to another, sometimes by multiples. Lenders consider all major homeownership expenses including mortgage payments, mortgage insurance premiums, homeowners insurance, homeowner association fees, and property taxes amongst the most significant. Homebuyers would be well-advised to evaluate all of these expenses as well," Gary S. Forshner, Founder at Law Offices of Gary S. Forshner, stated.
