There is, perhaps, no bigger expense you will ever have than the purchase of your house. Along with saving for retirement, and a college education for your children, paying a mortgage has become one of the “Big Three” financial events in one’s life.

If you’ve ever bought a house, you know the monthly payment you make is actually more than just your mortgage. The regular price of being a homeowner also includes property taxes, the interest on your mortgage, several different types of insurance and — for the purposes of the data collected by the BLS — regular maintenance.
