    I think it depends a lot on what area you're in as well. I work around Anne Arundel county and I could never charge $20 for 2+ acres. If you're closer to DC in the city, Bethesda, etc this is a terrific business model.

    There is a ton of money to be made in Montgomery county if someone wanted to pursue this model. I would, but the travel time to mon county would kill me

    I would say for this model to work you need an unlimited supply of small properties and HB2 workers. Without the volume and labor the model will fail. It wont work in most areas. IMO this model is much harder to make work vs charging normal rates on high quality work. But obviously justmowit made it work and was really the pioneer in his area. Sounds like others in his area are using his model and taking a piece of his pie. The problem with volume/price models will always be lack of loyalty. Its always going to attract price shoppers and the next company will always be willing to charge a little less. Justmowit is a smart business man and grabbed a huge market share before others caught on though.

    He has over 20,000 customers. Approximately 520,000 a week in revenue. It would take a significant drop of loosing customers for him to feel it

    I gotta ask where you got this info from? This a privately owned company and is not going to publish it's P&L statements on the internet. I saw maybe a hundred online reviews (not that I put much stock in them anyways) where I would have expected to see thousands in the major review sites.:usflag:
