What Are The Hidden Costs of Buying A Home In San Mateo?

Three Pitfalls

What are the costs no one talks about when buying a house?  They’re called Home Depot, Loews and Target.

The hot water heater goes out; who you gonna call?  The landlord.  When you’re a home owner and the water heater goes out, you’re it.

But that’s not the end.  Now that you can paint the walls any color, decorate any way you choose, plant a garden until you’re sunburned, Home Depot becomes the devil.

If you can think clearly and stay away from Home Depot for an afternoon go through your home inspection report.  List the projects that need to be done, the order they need to be done in and how much they’re going to cost.  Then open a savings account and start saving to pay for them; just like your own personal home owner’s association.

You’ll need a $10,000 roof in about ten years?  That’s about 84 bucks a month.
