Moving - Cost of Utilities

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey guys; so its been a while since I last posted but I was hoping for some insight. My husband, son, and I are planning a move mid-May 2017. From Northwest GA to Everett, WA. We're looking at getting a rough cost of living idea for major things, most importantly utilities. So if anyone can comment with costs that would be so appreciated. We're looking for costs ranging from as far as Seattle up to Everett if anyone lives there or has lived there and could give us an idea of the following, thanks!!

1. Water/Sewage per month?

2. Gas per month?

3. Electricity per month?

4. Trash per month?

5. Internet per month?

If this post is in the wrong place feel free to move it :)

Well, Washington has a higher cost of living than Georgia does straight off.



It may be better to google cost of living in the state or city. All these things will differ, especially depending on the companies you use, if the places you rent allocate utitlies or pay for the utilities themselves. But overall, I would expect it to be a fair bit higher than you used too right now.

We used those calculators and the estimated amounts were not too far off

Did a comparison of where I lived, and where I live now and it's right on the spot! Good info for sure!

It will vary by exactly where you live and how large of a house you have. We live 10 mikes to the south of Everett and our bills are approximately

Internet $50

Water $130

Electricity $75

Gas $50

Garbage $35

Thanks dmck! That's what I was looking for. We're looking at properties towards the south of Everett also. I will be attending graduate school in Seattle so we wanted something out of the city and the surrounding Everett area seems to suit us. Thanks!
