A couple weeks ago, I recieved a call from a realty company in town to mow bare lots in residential neighborhoods. 13 lots, I was told they were all easily under a half-acre. No problem, no trimming, xx.00 per lot. I get out to some of them, and some of them you couldn't even put a mower on. Rocks, mounds of dirt, etc. Plus it had rained a lot, and there was a lot of mud. I came out ok $-wise, because I could mow roughly half of them, and a few were completely bare dirt over 50% of the lot. But, I should have bid 50-75% higher than I did, no doubt. A couple of the lots took me an hour to do. We're talking nearly waist-high wheat and grass on some of them. Now that they're knocked down, I can mow more of them than last time. I'm going to honor my price, and hopefully I'm going to get some spec houses with this realty. But, I've already gotten a couple calls for lot clearing from a few other companies. They won't get the same price, that's for sure. I had to go buy an Echo brushcutter, after realizing that a weedeater wasn't cutting it(pun intended). Lesson learned: Never, EVER bid anything without looking at it first. EVER. No matter what. I'm almost ashamed, I should have known better. Especially after being on this site so much. I can guarantee I won't make that mistake again!
