It's been a good year for services, but a bad year on sales. Not sure what is going on but people are crazy on some of their expected prices. I had a guy contact me and ask me if I could manage his 6 acre property for $80! Last week I did a estimate in the country, was 1 acre and I quoted $70 weekly. She told me the last guy did it for $40. And I lost every bid (by nearly half the price) that was 1 acre or more.

I guess I'm more profitable on smaller residential property because that is what I am setup to service. But if you guys out there with your big trucks and multiple zero turn trailers are charging these prices for larger properties... I feel sorry for you.

Anybody else have this problem?
