First HOA bid

Hi there,
We are a newer lawn care company. We received our first HOA request and I'm struggling with what to charge. This is the clients request.

Requesting a bid on lawn care including fertilizer applications, fall clean up and snow removal for homes from 7301 S Tivoli Place south to 2400 Trevi Place. Includes 4 villas and 14 twin units. Please break down into a per unit cost because 5 units are not yet sold but will be included as sod is laid.

The HOA itself isn't huge. Only 2 of the townhomes have a privacy fence. We'd probably go there with 4 crewmen for time effectiveness. Any input? I don't want to send a bid and it be rejected immediately due to high pricing! Thanks

My advice... Pass on it. They'll more than likely bid it again next year and end up replacing you when they find someone cheaper. I consider my company to have an excellent reputation and we've never had one end well. Doesn't matter if the place looks like Augusta when you're done they'll replace you with someone else cheaper or a new board will take over and have their own agenda.
