Nedbank's Tim Akinnusi informs us of the hidden costs involved when buying a home.

Our design contestants have completed their final rooms and now all that’s left is doing touch-ups and finishes and in a less than a month we will have our official winner. But for today our finance expert joins Bonnie on the couch.

Buying a home is one of the most important steps in your life, whether it's your first home or an upgrade. Therefore, being informed about some of the extra costs involved over and above the purchase price can make a huge difference and make your home buying experience as easy as possible.

We are joined by Tim Akinnusi, Head Sales and Client Management at Nedbank Home Loans to talk to us about some of the hidden costs potential buyers need to take into account when looking at buying a home.

Consult your bank to make sure you fully understand all the costs associated to owning a home, and that those unexpected hidden costs won’t come back to haunt you. For more information visit
