$10/sf is a little cheap for me. (figuring 15% extra in your 12x16 = 220sf)

Not really, I think most people have their limit built into the back of their head and if you fall under it, and can do it in their time frame it it usually an approval quickly. I am at $14 average per foot on pavers here.
