You will have to itemize your deductions but you will be able to deduct any interest you pay if you have a mortgage on the house. You will also be able to deduct

The IRS lets you deduct points in the year you paid them if, among other things, the loan is to purchase or build your main home, payment of points is an established business practice in your area and the points were within the usual range. Make sure your loan meets all the qualification requirements so that you can deduct points all at once.

You can also deduct property taxes. These taxes will be an annual deduction as long as you own your home.
