what all comes with buying a house for the first time?

I wonder how much taxes are expected if I own a house (about $300K) in Schenectady or Guilderland. Thank you!
If you own a house,
you probably have an Impound Account with the Lender,
which collects Taxes and Insurance on a monthly basis,
which would mean,
that you owe nothing.
