    I have been offered to bid on a 25 acre condo complex with abou 910,000 s.f. of turf areas to maintain.Could anyone suggest an approximate amount per s.f. to charge for a yearly contract. Any help would be appreciated. I currently maintain commercial propertys but non that are this large.

    List exactly what you'll be doing and how many buildings occupy this area. Will help determine what to charge

    The way I bid multi. unit complexes is to break each unit into a section. I then figure the
    approximate time it will take to complete each section. I then tally the total time for all units and then add in any common areas. I found it entirely too difficult to look at a large complex as a whole. Bidding like this helps me to not overlook things that may come back to haunt me. I have won some bids like this I have also lost some like this. Hope it helps some.
