Mortgage Payments

So when I arrived home from work yesterday I checked the mail and my yearly escrow analysis for my mortgage arrived.   The statement predicted a $182 shortage which means I can pay that $182 now or spread out during the course of the year. 

Sounds like Wells Fargo found out I paid off my student loans. 

Of course I will pay the $182 now.  I don't want my mortgage payment to go up.  In case hard times ever fall upon me, the smaller the mortgage payment the better.  I hate how it seems that the universe can sense a little extra money in your pocket. Oh well.

Now I just have to wait for the homeowner's association dues invoice to arrive...


  1. Yeah, those hit us sometimes as well. We had to protest our property taxes this past year because it rose over $50,000. No way in the world it could rise that quickly! Hopefully your homeowners dues are a set amount. Then you are expecting it.

  2. Wow! That is crazy. Last year, our property values (allegedly) rose slightly (only about $5,000) which caused a small increase in property taxes.
