Unexpected Expenses After Buying A Home

Don't get caught off guard after you have purchased a home! Here is a list of some things that you might want to consider buying after closing.


1.  Lawnmower - Unless you are moving from a previous home where you owned your own lawnmower, this is a necessary purchase. Or you can also go the easier route and hire a lawn service to mow!

2. Hose - Such a simple purchase but so easy to forget to buy.

3. Refrigerator - The previous owners probably will not have left their shiny Frigidaire so don't forget to make a trip to your local hardware store to pick one out. 

4. New Locks- You never knew who might have had a copy to the front door so don't forget to get those replaced asap!

5. Fire escape ladder and fire extinguisher - These are items that you most likely (and thankfully) will never have to use. It's worth it to have peace of mind, though!
