Maintenance can be an ongoing cost for home ownership. In a single family home, the costs depend on what you want to upgrade, such as the HVAC, kitchens, bathrooms, etc. For a condo or apartment, HOA fees are a regular expense. Common areas are often maintained out of the HOA fees whereas the owner is usually responsible for maintenance inside the home.
Be sure to calculate the new property taxes on a home purchase. Property taxes generally reset after a home is bought. This can be determined by finding your local millage rate. This varies based on the location. For example, if you buy a home for 280,000 the taxable value is often reset to 50% of the purchase price. So if your local area has a tax rate of 49 mills (4.9% of taxable value) your new property taxes will be $6,860 ($140,000 x 4.9%). This can often be significantly higher than the current owner is paying.
