3. How much can I expect to pay in utilities?
Estimate your utility bills and ensure they will be affordable. If you are already working on a tight budget, you don’t want the cost of utilities to make your new home unaffordable. Take into consideration the age of the home before purchasing. Some older houses are much harder to heat, resulting in higher gas bills, plumbing can leak, leading to expensive water bills and poor wiring can mean higher electric bills. Also don’t forget about costs associated with your phone, Internet and television.
Alberta has a lot of choice when it comes to providers, and each utility and phone and Internet company offers the ability to calculate costs – especially if you already have a history with that business and they are knowledgeable about your history. Be sure to compare quotes! You never know where you might score some savings.
