That's not accurate then in your experience?
The amenity fee is part of the utility bill, that's $147. Drinking water, irrigation water, garbage and recycling makes our total average bill about $220 a month for a 2 BR masonry CYV that is 7 years old. The irrigation systems usually run two nights a weeks, you set your timer but they'll be set up for you when you buy a new home. During the rainy season from May to October you can turn the irrigation off.

We have power with SECO electric, our bills run about $95 during the heating season, which is about 2 months and about $85 in the A/C season and about $70 when we don't need either.

SECO is the cheapest power I ever had. I can remember in the 80's living in Pensacola and my electric bill was about $260 a month for a normal size home 30 years ago. Moving here 7 years ago from Maryland, our power there was anywhere from $180 to $400 a month. I find SECO is a great deal. Most communities or condos will have an HOA fee, my mother back in Maryland was paying $250 a month for condo fees and they didn't even have a pool or rec center.
