Number 1 – Property Tax
Many of the services you’ll enjoy in your new neighbourhood, from parks and recreation facilities to road maintenance and schools, are funded in part by municipal property taxes. Rates vary widely, from region to region and home to home. Annual taxes can top several thousand dollars in urban centres, so some homeowners opt to pay in installments — your lender may provide an option to combine these with your mortgage payments.
