New tv(if needed), new furniture, new hardware, new garage stuff, finishing the basement, supplies, etc. I understand you're buying an apartment but some of these costs will still be associated. The costs are just beginning haha.
yep, owning the house always asks for more money...
Make sure you understand the HOA costs and what the HOA covers, and the rules by how much the fee can go up.
