Hey Everyone...Hope you are all having a great day!

I have a quick question....we are trying to figure out our budget for a rental home etc. but I need help with how much all the bills will be on average. I know what I pay now in Canada...but I anticipate a difference (we don't pay for trash etc)...

We are looking at 2000-2500sq ft homes in Summerlin. Can anyone share what an average months utilities be on top of rent??

Thanks so much for you help! I think there was a similar thread not too long ago but I can't seem to find it anywhere!

Thanks again!

I think Lvoc is right on.... Maybe a tad low on the elec and gas depending on age of home. If it has a pool you can figure 20-70 for the pool alone depending on the pump

If you have a heat pump and no gas furnace, you can lop $70 off the winter gas bill and add slightly more to the winter electric bill, maybe $80-$90 for the coldest month, more if your heat pump is old and less efficient.

I thought LVOC's averages were a great estimate. Plan your budget for the highest end of his / her range, and you should be golden.

Tried to give you some love LVOC, but you know how this site likes to promote promiscuity.

Thanks so much everyone...I really appreciate the help!

Im not too worried about heat in the winter...Im a Canadian Girl that doesn't turn the heat on in our house until late november or december...basically not till snow...so I expect my blankets and sweaters will do just fine in LV! LOL

We are trying to decide between a private pool and community pool home...so electricity payments may be a deciding factor for that!

Cheers!
