It would be my pleasure to search the available home listing in Sun City Aliante for you! There are Laurel models available but none that are have casitas. They range from 2104 sqare feet to 1157 square feet. Would you be interested in a home at SCA without a casita? Please contact me via email to discuss this further!
Once you zero in on a property and intend to make an offer, the former or current owners/sellers will have that information for you. With all those utility bills it always depends on the size of the family, and their usage, some people use more water than others and it depends also on the property does it include a yard and lawn to be
taken care of etc. But there is no general number, once you know which property interests you, your Realtor you absolutely should work with, can get you utility details from the current owners which then will give you some idea, you should also ask for the electric bill, if the property has air conditioners or central air conditioning...
Good luck to you.
