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.
