Yes that is what I'm getting at.

Even if I had employees with me on maintenance properties the numbers per man hour don't change. However, on larger properties I'd be willing to reduce the amt per man/hr a little bit as less truck fuel burnt and wear & tear on trucks & trailers. I have a buddy whose company only does townhouses & commercials for maintenance and they average $50/man hr.

When you have systems, you have control.

If youíre born poor, itís not your mistake. But if you die poor, it is your mistake.
