Hi Brandon,

I'm not sure if you're buying in Queen Creek, but the electrical company should be able to give you info on what the previous electrical bills were. If you visit www.aps.com I know you can go the "Resources for Realtors" section and type in a property address to find past bill information. If it isn't available (for instance if the home has been vacant for a while) you should try phoning APS for the info. They are very helpful and can often give you a high, low and average for the last full 12 month time period they have available.

As a rough guide I'd say a 2500sf two-story home would be averaging around $200 per month, but that will vary hugely depending on how cool you like it, how many rooms you cool, how many months you use the ac, how good your insulation is, the type of windows, age of the home, construction and so on.

You might be a little tight on the bills on this, but again, that depends on whether you have any other outgoings, and how expensive your tastes are....Don't be house-poor, it's no fun to be married to a house!

Hope this helps :)
