You should contact the utility companies and they can give you averages. It also depends on the year built. New homes are very energy efficient and therefore your utility bills will be less. Older homes don't have as great of insulation and windows so utilities will be more. It's really a case by case base. If you need help finding a home give me a call.

If you have the address you can contact the utility companies. They will provide you the average usage at the home for the past year. Nevada Energy is 702-402-5555 or Southwest Gas (877) 860-6020

There are a lot of factors that can sway the range of these utilities bills. Age of the home, pool, number of people living in the home, type of insulation, type of windows, etc.

But to give you a rough estimate my house is 4100 sqft with a pool and I pay:
-gas $40-$200 mo
-electricity $180 to $600 mo.
-water $150 to $300 mo (I live on a 1/3 acre with a pool and lots of grass and trees etc)
-trash $45 a quarter

Hope this is helpful.

Many things go into the equation. One, will it be a two story or one story? Will anyone be home during the day? Will it have 2 AC units?

If you will have a two story with 2 units you can just run the one unit at 75 during the day and it will cool the house and when everyone isl home at night, you can always turn on the second unit. In this case, your bill will be between $350 and $450/month. We personally have a home in excess of 4000 sq.ft. and that is what our bill runs in the hot months.

A one story with one unit - $275 to $325 - depending on the setting. If it has two units, one can always be off during the day.

I hope I have helped. Good luck! Becky

Depends on insulation and windows and what temp you keep it and number of AC units running at night. I had a 4600 sq ft custom and ran about $500 in the summer but it was built energy wonderful. My neighbor with a 4000 sq ft custom but a flat roof ran about $1100. I've heard of $700 power bills in the summer for these bigger tract houses. I have another 3300 sq ft with no pool and $240 ish in the summer with one ac unit running at night. Window ac units suck energy and so do older appliances. You can ask for bills when buying a house. You can also call the power company and ask.
If I can help you with anything else, please feel free to contact me. Kurt 656-1818

Depending on age of home...a home built in the last 10 years you can figure 12 to 15 cents per sq. ft. during the summer months depending on pool,spa, amount of grass as water is also expensive. Figure 4 to 6 cents a month during the winter. Let me know if you need some help. Matt
