So going back, no two sets of properties will be the same based on these factors. As I stated earlier maybe on cookie cutter lots or subdivisions you could use sq ft as a price guide. You stick to your methods and I'll use mine, they've worked this long.....
Here's how it works! You get a call from a lead, soon to be customer. You get the basics of what they want, and what day is good to come by.They give your the Address. Using the Address, you go to Google earth and measure the property.This gives you a good idea of a ballpark price.Going by my price guide. You show up to customers home,look over the property and give a final price.
