I'm considering a move to Vegas soon and am curious about the other costs associated with living there other than the incredibly cheap housing market (which is one of my reasons for wanting to move there).

How much should I expect to pay monthly for a ~2,500 Sq. Foot house?
Water?
Gas?
Electric?
Garbage?

Thanks!

We have a similar house.

Water about $50/mo
Gas, I think about $100
Electric - Summer $200, Winter $40
Garbage $14/mo

That's way too high on gas and winter months electricity because of forced air heating.

My summer electric for 3330 sqft with pool cooling to 78 degrees is $250 rising to $350 in the hottest part of summer. Gas is a lot less than $100 though.

We have gas stove, dryer, hot water, (heat, maybe?) etc. That's why the gas is higher.

What was your gas bill the last few months? Doubt it was much less than $100

The bills for gas in winter and/or electric in summer vary a lot by people's individual comfort levels, insulation, airtightness of door and window seals, orientation of the house, placement of windows, trees, two story house next door, all sorts of variables to consider. Square footage is just a starting point.

That question depends on your situation: How large of a house; how many family members; household lifestyle. Summers here can be hot and long, so during the summer, your AC system will be the largest energy user. In summer, I'm at about $500 a month. Your usage will vary.
