I give my first bid today. Pretty straight forward 18000 sqft lawn. Gentleman already has someone doing it, but the guy is only showing up and cutting the grass, not doing any trimming. I told the guy $40 dollars. He said he is paying $30 now. I told him he wasn't getting the quality for that $30. No trimming. He said that the guy cutting before only charged $30 also and did do the trimming. Long story short. I drop my price to get the job. The plus factor is, I'm getting two other jobs because of it, but still $10 less then I wanted. Guess I could do a great job for him this year and eat a little crow then raise price alittle next year. The homes are in a place where the price ranges from 225K to 600K and he is located on the main drag. Could get alot of exposure. So, what do you think, being taken or fair?
