You're area and target market may be different. I want to attract higher end or more picky clientele not foreclosures. See I charge minimum $25 on houses 0-3k sq ft. Thy is why I want to use a show up fee and a minimum. Your ara might have lower wages gas prices and insurance costs.

I have run this against several of my residential properties and it is right on the money. When I have some free time I will try it on some of my commercial properties to see how it fares. Great work!

That is what unpaid interns are for... I mean that's why I got a minor in math when I went for my MBA.
