Budgeting to Buy a House

When purchasing a home most people focus on the mortgage payment they have to make each month. However, many overlook the cost of property taxes, impact fees, association fees (if you are buying a condo), and closing costs. You need to look into the costs of these things or if they apply to what you are buying.
