Utilty costs really depend on the size of the home and your personal preferences/uses. If you are considering a specific property, ask the seller for a disclosure of their monthly utility expenses.

It really depends on the size of the home you purchase and how many people are living with you. I currently live in Camarillo and I have owned from a 3 bedroom to 6 bedroom home. The fees are usually based on how many units are consumed. You start of in the 1st tier level of fees which is roughly $1.66/unit then if the usage is higher than average you then enter into the 2nd tier which is roughly $2.41/unit and so on... The more you use the more you pay.

Hey Lisa:

Good planning. Water , Sewer and Trash usually can run between $

$70.00-120.00 per month, depending on the size of your home (under 2900sf) and your water usage. Electric and Gas however depend on the efficiency of the home you are buying. Dual-Pane Windows keep in heat and air, and proper insulation can save you hundreds. A wrapped water heater is also an excellent investment Some of these components are usually found in newer construction, but a good remodel would have this as well. My energy efficient home for S.C. Gas only
runs only $10-12 in the winter per month, but because of central air, it can run $95.00 per month
in the hot summer months.

Hope this helps. And Good Luck.

We live locally here in Camarillo. Water/Trash and Sewer run apx. $95.-$100./month. Gas in the summertime is for our gas range only and runs apx. $20./month. Winter gas bills will be higher, for forced air heating, so the gas can be $100-125./month. There are a lot more variables to consider: Home insulation, size of family, size of house, weather factors, etc. The individual utility companies may advise you on their usage trends, as well. I hope this helps!
