My family and I are looking into the Columbia, SC area.

We have school age children, both high school and elementary school. We want a nice, affordable area.

I am hoping someone can help me ascertain the costs of living in Columbia. For example:

What is a typical water and sewer bill for a 4 bedroom home? How often do you pay? What does it cost to register a vehicle? Get your license? How much is a gallon of gas? A gallon of milk?

I just moved from SC to NJ last year. In Columbia, Lexington is a good school district. One of the few things I appreciated when moving to NJ was that we don't pay property taxes on automobiles, etc. here, as you will do in SC, when you register your vehicle, so keep that in mind. However, the insurance rates are cheaper in SC...I think it evens out though, when including the car taxes.

Enjoy SC...I sure miss it!! The state of "Smiling Faces, Beautiful Places!"
