Pay taxes w/mortgage vs. pay taxes on your own?
I just closed on the re-finance of our house!!!!! 5% fixed and I'm very happy about that. We will be paying for this place for a long, long time!
Of our new mortgage payment, $339.00 per month is taxes and $59.00 per month is homeowners insurance.
What is the more frugal option, making sure things are paid on time by having the mortgage company pay the insurance and the property taxes and not have to worry about it - or pay those bills ourselves to have more control of the money month to month(maybe collect interest on the tax money in our savings account or pay off the whole insurance payment at one time)
