I don't live in Arizona and was curious what would be considered average costs in Saddlebrooke for two people in a 1400 sq. ft. home? I'm interested in the normal things... water/sewer, trash pick-up, electricity and heating.

Thanks!

I wouldn't mind knowing this either. No responses yet, though. I guess the Saddle Brooke residents are out and about, enjoying themselves.

Well, could be, but they're also too old to be hooked to computers (and forums in particular).

Nawww, if they live in SaddleBrooke they're pretty savvy folks. I'd still like to know what their utilities and such average in cost, though.

Well, since the houses are new, I'd imagine they're well insulated and have good windows, so their bills shouldn't be high. For about the same size new house in Tucson (all electric) my electric bills don't average to more than $70-80/month, if that.

I'm on a different rate, though, and have solar water heater, so you can add another $10-20 maybe.

There was a similar question posed on a Saddlebrooke site run by one of their residents. He gave the following info for 2008.

Our home is 2100 sq ft, which includes 2 master bedroom suites, as well as kitchen/breakfast nook, great room (living and dining rooms), as well as a large Arizona room. Our home sits on .3 acre, which is about double the standard lot. I mention this because we have 1,000 sq ft of lawn, lots of trees, bushes, etc and a vegtable patch ... all of which get lots of water.
We also have and use lots of electronics, e.g., tv's, computers, etc.

Our utility bills for the last year were:

$ 1094.31 Western Broadband for Cable TV and Internet
$ 1589.00 Truco Electric Cooperative
$ 832.52 Southwest Gas
$ 433.07 SaddleBrooke Utility Co for sewage
$ 394.79 Qwest Telephone (local only) ... we use our cell phones for long distance.
$ 498.82 Lago Del Oro Water
$ 295.20 Waste Management for Gargabe Collection
$ 516.00 Arizona Pest Control
$ 150.00 Termite Protection Guarantee
----------
$ 5803.71 Total Annual Utility Expense

Ok...thanks. Where I live I'm hooked up to cable television through Baja Broadband...the expanded version...it's good, but no extras like HBO, Tennis Channel, etc., and my high-speed internet is combined with my telephone phone through Qwest. What is considered the preferred TV cable company there in Tucson...I'm assuming SaddleBrooke would be the same? Getting telephone, cable TV and the internet in a package might be the way to go, or is there something better I should be aware of? Thanks.

Saddlebrooke is NOT Tucson by any stretch of the imagination and I highly doubt the usual suspects do business there... Cox and Comcast split town. There was a time they didn't even go to some parts of town that are officially in the county. I believe these services are still unavailable in some areas. I think there was a question about that recently about a property along Old Spanish Trail (between the city limits and Vail) and they couldn't get Cox.
