Paperworks in a real estate transaction is a must and sometimes tedious. To prepare you on your home buying journey, the documents involved include the Disclosed statement - the relationship between you and the realtor. You are given a Real Estate Agency Disclosure Pamphlet and a paper to sign and date indicating that you have received the pamphlet and that it has been explained to you. Additionally, there will be a Sale Agreement that will state about the purchase price you offer, earnest money deposits, inspection dates, closing dates, and the like. You will also need to review the seller’s property disclosure to check the property’s history. 


Other than the monthly mortgage payments after the purchase is completed, you will still need to consider the property taxes, insurance, and other miscellaneous fees such as HOA, utilities, etc. 



Spare some budget on the usual home maintenance or urgent repairs. Anticipate possible expenses that may arise in the long run. Do not forget to add these charges when reviewing your home finances.
