4 Things That May Hit Your Pocket Monthly When Buying Miami Real Estate

Quick Tips:

  1. Taxes:  The taxes listed on the MLS listing will most likely not the be the taxes that you will ultimately pay. Taxes are often reset based on the new purchase price, other factors and ultimately some of the deductions you may or may not be able to take.
  2. HOA fees:  Is the property located in a neighborhood that has an HOA? If so, how much is the fee and will you still qualify for the loan you seek with this extra cost? The difference between several hundred dollars can often make or break some financing.
  3. Insurance:  This is a biggie. Shopping for insurance is critical once you go under contract. Is the property in a flood zone or not? Are there any significant insurance items updated?
  4. Repairs:  Budgeting for repairs is essential. Some buyers are into making repairs, while others are not. You need to figure out your tolerance level for repairs and buy a home within that tolerance. If a home requires a lot of repairs after closing, you have to make sure you have the monthly budget.
