My prices are based off of what my business needs to make and what profit I want to take in. If a job costs 1K to do, it cost 1K. Doesn't matter to me who has the money, the biggest house or the most money, as long as they have it when the job is done so I can get paid, I'm happy.

How do you figure the net worth of the owner
If you know who lives there and know how much he's worth ,do you feel that you should charge more?

True,but you see a lot of guys here saying they want to deal with homes over a certain amount.Doesn't mean your going to make more.

First house, depending on the location, 200-250k, second (also depending on location) 600-700k or so. So hard to say from the pictures. Also like I said location is a big deal.
