Money Saving Tips

 

So you’re finally purchasing that new home since the price is down or your ARM Loan’s Adjustable Rate is about to jump so you’re going to finally get a new mortgage.   Well, you are in luck if you are going to start your transaction right now! 

 

Why?  This is the ideal time of year to start the process of a Mortgage

 

In Florida, property taxes are paid in arrears.  This means you pay at the end of the year for the prior year.  (Insurance is paid in advance, you pay your policy to cover you for the upcoming year)  Also, you receive a 4% discount for paying your annual property taxes in November. 

 

So if you close on a mortgage in August, September or October, you end up paying an entire year of property taxes at the closing table!  With Florida property values and our crazy tax system, this can be a hefty sum.  On top of this, you have to "seed" your escrow accounts with approximately 2 months of payments for taxes and escrows.
