Hi Maryanne - The best thing to do is either contact the utility companies in the area you are moving to, or contact an Agent who can give you a rough idea of costs. There are so many factors, that sometimes the best thing to do is find the property you are interested in & then request a year's copies if utilities from the Seller of the property. You can then calculate your utility costs from actual usage.
Hope this helps!
