1. If you own a home, do you have your homeowners taxes in your mortgage or do you pay separately?

2. Do you do anything for St. Patrick's Day?

3. What is one of your guilty pleasure TV shows?

Details about my house are not off limits.  My finances, which include the terms of my mortgage, are.  I realize that's likely far too complex a differentiation for you to make, but your inability to grasp the difference between a discussion of my home and a discussion of my finances isn't really my problem.

NO ONE asked dollar amounts. Not sure why escrow is a personal subject. I personally think it is a bad idea to have it in a mortgage as the mortgage company is making interest on your money, not you.

I'm aware of your opinion on the use of escrow.  I was aware of it before you posted this fluff.  I have no desire to engage on the topic of escrow, either for or against.

I will say this, I have no objection to my mortgage company making a profit on my mortgage, since that's the only reason they lent it to me in the first place.

That's curious. Why don't you feel the same way about the Federal Gov't when you overpay your taxes to get a refund?

Oh, grapes, I'm not interested in your finances and I don't think that's the direction the op was going either. I am sorry you felt the question was so invasive.

I've heard that as a reason why people DO NOT escrow and it makes a lot of sense. I guess the interest I get to report includes what sits in escrow, What little that is, Lol.

I don't like having to find hundreds of dollars every year so they can have a "cushion". Shrug.
