Of course you can and you should. Just remember that your consumption may be diferent from the seller. Still you can ask what temperature they like to keep in the home and how much do they use appliances like stove and dryer.
The elctric bill might not be the only cost of a big house. How about the water bill and maintenance of the lawn? Who is going to clean the "big" house? David Cooper
Contact your agent and have him request that from the other agent. If the seller is serious they should have no problem providing that. You may want to also ask for a couple statements so you can estimate what it would be in the winter vs the summer. Also keep in mind that most electric providers offer discounts for green appliances and also AC controls. The AC controls saves money by shutting down during peak hours or those hours where others are using high amounts.
Absolutely! You can ask your agent to get copies of previous bills from the sellers or you can usually call the electric company and ask for that information. To the best of my knowledge that is not confidential. Remember, your daily routine/habits may increase or decrease the bill! How many people live in the home now vs. how many people will you have living in the home?... things to factor into your calculation! Great question and good luck on your purchase!
