Taxes and Insurance

For both homeowners and renters, understanding taxes and ensuring you have the right type of insurance is key.

Before you became a homeowner, your tax and insurance needs were probably pretty simple. An income tax form and some basic renters insurance were probably all you needed. Things are little more complex for homeowners, but homeownership is worth the hassle.
