This is a very basic website which gives you a ball park figure

Nobody can answer that without knowing more facts. Electric and water and heat all depend on how many people are in the house, what temp you set the furnace at, if you leave all the lights on all day...

You can ask the homeowner's past utility costs (ask for past year) but your bills may very well differ from theirs!

In regard to a 3bdm2bath single family home in Doylestown, your best options are to align yourself with a realtor you trust, and who services the Doylestown area. A very important part of the value they provide is to empower you with information and knowledge the local area and to take the time to sit down with you and explain the typical path of home buying in detail. In relation to your question , once you find a home that you love speak with your agent and he/she will get the information about utility bills from the listing agent. Homes of varying sizes and structures have diferent impact on utility bills vs ..say an older home in comparasion to a newer home. An older home is insulated differently than a new home. Additionally, energy efficient appliances over time may have a differernt affect on than older appliances. Usage also plays a big part in expenses.. At any rate, do you homework, develop a relationship with a realtor who you trust and move forward.... Nice to be buyer today with historically low rates and plenty of homes to choose from on the market...best wishes.. Do not hesitate to call, I am here to serve you Doylestown real estate needs.

Are you working with a realtor? If so, they should be able to ask the listing agent for at least an estimate from the sellers. If not, I would recommend working with someone, this is the least of the areas in which a solid agent could be helpful. Otherwise it's back to the guessing game others have eluded to. Best of luck to you and we're only an e-mail or call away if you need help.

Hello D.,

this is a tough question unless you know if the utilities are and which ones, are electric,gas, oil, etc. ball park would be winter-$250-400 per month for a 2000 sq ft home. Hope this helps. Also, if you find a home that you like, the owner can provide you with this documentation.
