Hey folks. I'm finishing my first year in the biz and I have to say that it's been great. But now, I find that I need to do some 'tweaking' to make it continue to be great. One question that I have is this: what formula do you use to come up with commercial and or residential bids? I've just been looking at the place, thinking in my head what I could do it for and still be happy with how it looks, what I'm making, how long I'm there, etc. and letting them know that way. It's worked out well so far but I don't want to put myself in a postion that I'm the only one that can do this, later on. I want to be able to tell a guy the formula for figuring bids and turn him loose, rather than just say, well, that one there would be about $400 a month, and give him no reason why. Any advice is appreciated and thanks in advance.
