    It sounds like a reasonable quote for my area too. Maybe a little less if there was a chance for some extras, good exposure, and good gut feeling about customer, but not much less. If half or slightly less than half of your estimates are accepted your prices are just right.

    maybe just a little high here, only 5 or ten bucks but we have a very depressd market, and he is right if you are getting all your bids you are probably too low anyway..... :waving:

    Sounds reasonable. Like already said if you are getting a high percentage of bids your prices are too low.

    Yeah I think that's a very nice price myself, almost too nice, I think you could get 75 for 1.5 acres but then 65 usually gets a YES faster.
    As for me, I get between 50 to 60 for 1 acres thou I have a customer whose 1 acre lot I still do for 40 because they been with me since day 1, so really 65 for 1.5 is a very good price at least here in Virginia.

    Hehehe, I like it when I'm getting SOOO many phonecalls that I can price for a 9-out-of-10 no answer ratio :) Only time it frustrates me is when my prices are actually good and I get that 9/10 NO crap.
