How much should I charge?

I charge between 30-35.00 for an average 1/4 acre property, each one takes about a half hour..should I be charging more?

Are you making a profit after your expenses? If not...then charge more.

Sounds just right. I have $35 minimum, even if it takes 10 minutes.

Are you turning a profit at your current price after all your expenses are taken care of?

I'm making a profit, but I should be making more..I don't want to be recommended because I'm "cheap"...Think I'm going to raise prices next season

Thanks for all the input
