What are the typical cost of operating a 3/2 home in PSL, such as electricity, garbage, real estate tax, homeowners insurance, water to name a few. I am thinking of moving there and would like to get some feedback on a typical home of 2000 sq feet or so with a price around 100k- 150k. If you have a different size home let me know anyway so I can try to understand.

garbage is in your taxes from Waste Mgmt. $262 a year. Water/sewer is estimated for 2 people at approx $75 a month. More if you have children.

Elec is difficult because it depends on if you live with it 80 degrees in the house or like it cold at 70. Do you turn it off when you go to work or leave it running 24/7. We also don't use the a/c in the winter months so the elec bill drops to very very little. I have 1680 under air and since I work from the house mine is on 24/7 during the summer. Its set at a cool 75 or 76 and my highest bill was $155. When the first cool air hits the sliders and windows are open and the bill drops rapidly!

Homeowners Insurance, again, up to you and how many companies you ask. It varies a lot. Let your fingers do the walking.
