thought wanted your thoughts and opinions on the matter.

since the mowing season is coming up and many people are getting more frequent requests to bid on various applications, a good portion have stated their concerns for overbidding on that one job they really wanted, and partially regret it, is there a such thing as overbidding?

ofcourse there is, bid too high and you have no chance in getting the job.

I say, the more you can get for a job, more power to you.

A simple economics class will teach that the terms over-charging and price gouging are undefined. If you find someone to pay your amount, it is obviously worth it to them.

The first thing business school taught us about evaluating a job is too make sure you do not bid yourself out of it, if you have no idea where to start add percentages to something you have as a base and figure it from there

It's getting harder and harder to price a bid and get it at a price to make money due to all the low ballers out there
