I'll sit around getting fat all winter". that's what Matt says to himself when he is bidding jobs at this point of the year. Today he was at a regular customers house finishing up for the season, when a guy approached and wanted to know how much to clear out his back yard/half on a hill. Matt told him, "well I won't be able to get to it till December if the weather holds out, I'll have to take a better look at it, and walk thru it all, but roughly around $2500.00, with half down prior to starting." The guy didn't even blink, he said "ok, let me know how much exactly and when you'll want the deposit." Who, when it comes this time of the year, bids the jobs higher and with more abandon?
