    I know that people always ask how much to charge for certain properties but i think this is alittle different. I usually charge more for commercial than i do for residential. I have been asked to bid on a home owner association for 24 townhomes. My question is, should I treat this as a commercial or a residential? My thoughts where to figure what it would be for both and give them a price right in the middle.( example 50 for res 70 for com= $60 per townhome) What do you think? Thanks.

    I would treat it as 100% commercial, seeing how you'll be dealing with the association.

    I agree, plus it will be a headache because the home owners will want something done different than the association wants, blah, blah, blah, charge more for the headaches...

    Yeah I agree there a real pain and most want it done as cheap as they can get it. Put your bid in like you would for any other commercial property.
