Furniture and window treatments. It can be quite costly to furnish every room in your house. Couches, tables, chairs, lamps, and beds are expensive. You may want to consider keeping a few rooms as storage until you are able to furnish them. The same is true with window treatments. Homeowners should budget approximately $1,000 per window.

The utility bill. Gas and electricity usage can add up, especially if you've previously lived in an apartment where the utilities were included in your rent. Now is the time to turn the lights off when you leave a room and be mindful of the heat and AC.

Pest treatments. Exterminators can be expensive. However, knowledge is power. Ask about termites and other pests before you move in. If there is any kind of pest problem and you choose to move in, do your homework and choose a reasonably priced exterminator. Many companies have a variety of plans to choose from.

Landscaping and outdoor maintenance. Even if you choose to maintain your lawn and property yourself, you still need to purchase the equipment to do so. Many homeowners opt for landscapers. It is up to you to decide which method is best for you.

Property taxes and tax increases. It is almost certain your taxes will gradually increase, and there is no way to know for certain how much they will increase over the years.

Home repairs. There is no good time for an appliance to break, or for pipes to burst. Have money set aside for unexpected repairs. When you purchase appliances, make sure you put them under warranty.
