I have an opportunity to bid a modular home community with (25) 50x100 vacant plots and 11 Lots with un-occupied modular homes. The kicker is only six of them are joined together and the rest are spread out over a 25 acre area. I also get to bid there main office which is just over an acre. Trimming around hook-ups, meters( per vacant lot) and of course the 11 modular homes is expected.
How would you bid?

How long is it going to take you and how much do you have to make an hr just to break even after expenses?

I Always bid a dollar a minute for every hour that the equipment is off the trailer. I have always found it a good guide and to work well

For the umpteenth time.... it's all about time... figure out how long it will take and charge (bid) accordingly.

If your bidding against guys with bigger/faster equipment that are well organized you'll get creamed. If you're bidding against other guys who have no clue what to charge you might get it.
