House help.

This is the post I've been meaning to write all week, but have repeatedly gotten sidetracked from.

As probably everybody knows, I'm buying a house. I'm currently somewhere in between inspection and closing.

I've talked briefly with n0thingman, lilostitch, telephasic and momacress (along with probably several others), but I wanted to ask the questions here, all at once, for everyone to see:

What are the things you wish someone had told YOU beforehand?

What are the hidden expenses that will catch me unawares?

telephasic was mentioning URA loans and grants to me -- anyone have any experience with that?

How would you recommend handling finding a mortgage?

And, well, any other questions that I haven't mentioned.

Also, Pittsburgh homeowner people: Anything Pittsburgh-specific I should know about?

C'mon people: educate me!

I'll be happy if I can get the seller out by closing. The house is divided into two units (I plan to turn it back into a house, tho) and the current owner has already asked which unit I'll be living in, because she wants to stay. She's been told no, and when we wrote our response after the inspection, we made it clear that we wanted the house vacant at closing. Hadn't thought about the stuff, tho.
