Property taxes, insurance, maintenance and repairs add up.

It’s Monday, and that means there must be a new Zillow analysis of data having to do with real estate. And there is.

Today, the story is about the sometimes hidden costs of home ownership.

Zillow and Thumbtack identified several common but often overlooked home expenses and calculated what home owners could expect to pay for them around the country. The analysis also included utility cost estimates from UtilityScore.
