Payments are made up of principal and interest. Principal is the balance of the amount borrowed and the interest is the cost of borrowing. Also known as P&I payment. It’s common to include property tax and homeowners’ insurance as part of your monthly payment. This is referred to as an escrow or impound account.

As a buyer, there are costs that you will pay as part of the property transaction. These costs include lender fees, escrow charges, and title fees. The amount varies depending on the loan amount, county and title, and escrow company. Your total funds to close will include the down payment, plus closing costs.
