Friendly reminder, property taxes are due January 31st at midnight! http://www.traviscad.org/
This time of year I always wonder- do I mind writting that check, or should I have escrowed those funds? The answer to that question is it depends…. When looking to purchase a property- be sure to always shop your loan. Some lenders may require you to escrow your taxes, others may give you the option- often with rate ramifications. Be sure to inquire about your options for escrowing your taxes or paying annually.
As much as I hate writing that check every January- I still like the fact that money is mine throughout the year to earn interst on, even if it is .000001% 🙂
