Since no one took this approach, I'll bring it in.

Take your total cost of all expenses for last year. Divide it by the total man hours work last year. That should give you your cost per man hour, just to cover your expenses.
Example: $425,000 in total expenses, divided by 8500 man-hours equals $50.00 cost per man hour. Some jobs you'll do for more than that and others you may end up doing for less. Of course you set your own price per man hour. Seems I read somewhere two years ago that the national average price per man hour was $60.00, but of course that varies greatly across the country.

Wish you the best! Just make sure you don't end up paying them to let you service their property.
