  • Some areas are more expensive for different reasons. Most people have to run their air conditioning in the summer because of the heat. However, it can also get very cold in the winter some parts of the state (the cold areas are also very hot in the summer) so the heating bills can also get high. I've broken down what I know people pay.

    Rent/Mortgage: varies - average 3 br/2 bath home in greater austin begins @ $175k+ renting same is @ $1800 mo
    Water: @ $100+
    Electricity: in summer $275-$600
    Gas: in winter $130
    Cable/Internet/Home Phone: @ 140
    Weekly Grocery Bill: varies

  • You do know this will vary from area to area and with the size of the home and family?!?

  • Yes. I know it will vary. But Id rather just ask about texans than the whole US.. cuz someone from cali or NY wont help at all! lol

    But I know it varies by even small things.. like my mom having a pool ups her water/sewer bill ALOT compared to those that do not..
