exactly, new castle, nh will usually pay high rates. there are a lot of nice neighborhoods just like that in the seacoast, and yet there are plenty of ridiculously cheap people.


sooo... you pay $800,000 for a house (which probably equals more like 1mil+ once you figure in the mortgage interest) and you're going with them because they save you $5/week? seriously? i guess customer service doesn't matter to a lot of people anymore since they don't want to pay for it..

People are willing to pay extra for deep roots. Our competitor charges 6 cents a square foot and we charge 9 cents a square foot. We have had several people not question the difference (which adds up) and have not lost one job that we have bid on against him.
