Hi everyone,

I've been looking at places in Stamford and one thing we've noticed is that most buildings do not include any utilities. Does any one have an idea of what the average cost are for utilities?

We currently have 110 budgeted for Water/Electric. I think this is accurate. The one we are unsure about is Gas. For the year we are budgeting around $1000. Is this realistic? The building we are looking at is brand new so it should be energy efficient.

Thanks in advance!

Lots of variables. Size of home. Outdoor temp. Indoor temp preference, amount of time home, Appliances. (are they gas or electric or propane?), age of furnace, amount of cooking, washer loads, ect.

I pay Nat Gas up to $50/mth in winter for a 700sq ft condo in Milford.

Hard to say if that $1000 budget is good without details. At least size of home.

Thanks for the reply. Our place is a 2 br/ 2bath approx 1300sq ft. I won't be too sure of all the other variables until we actually settle in
