Think April 15th is the only day of the year you need to worry about taxes? Wrong. Taxes are an integral part of homeownership. Property taxes from the state, county and local tax authorities will be assessed from you as a homeowner. Most lenders will create what is called an 'escrow' account. This account will have part of your mortgage payment added to it each month. This money is used by the lender to pay your property taxes and homeowner's insurance when they are due. Make sure you ask the lender what your PITI will be, not just your home loan principal and interest. This total monthly payment (PITI) figures in your principal, interest, property tax and insurance fees. Land transfer taxes are also a consideration. In Pennsylvania, this tax is assessed when property changes hands, and can typically be from one to tow percent of the purhcase price.
