You know how stressed you get figuring bids and trying hard to find that price that will land them, but not wanting to go to low? Well today I went and dropped off bids on 36 properties to one management company. I got to see last yrs winning bid, and the bids that have been submitted for this yr. I am just higher then last yr, where they were $135 I am $150... Best of all I am right in line with my competitors for this yr. And she commented how my bid sure "looked a lot nicer" (appearance wise) then everyone else, so I got to talk to her for about 10 min about how everything I do must be perfect... yada yada good conversation. I actually think I landed the whole "sha~bang" by just dropping it off in person and talking to her. Of course I wont know until the 31st. And now I feel a whole lot more comfortable on pricing these next 200 properties I am working on right now... because now I know what going rates are in my area. PS. I didnt lowball anything. Yes I saw thier prices, but my prices were figured before hand using a (time)X(rate) method.
