It you are asking about on-going expenses associated with the ownership of real property in Palm Beach Gardens much has to depend on what type of property (single family home, condominium, town home), what type of loan (FHA, conventional, other and where the property is located. Besides mortgage related expenses your two biggest expenses will be property taxes which you can use as a rule of thumb about 2% to 2 1/2% of purchase price and community fees if the property is encumbered by an association. Keep in mind your monthly loan expenses will vary dramatically if you are doing an FHA loan that will require Private Mortgage Insurance. Lawn care, pool maintenance, electric, water and other utilities and property insurance should also be included in your monthly budget. And make sure you set aside a few dollars for a margarita at the beach!
