How'd they do that?

Just got a mailer from local fertilizer company with a preprinted price quote on my lawn. How'd they do that.

Is there some place that list the lot size of subdivisions. Usually I just get a flyer on the door with a handwritten estimate.

Hmm... I know here where I live there is a website that you can go to and pull up peoples information such as their house price, house picture, and maybe even their property size... not sure though.

Hi JSR2741,

Maybe they are basing the quote on the property value? You can review this site and see if it is helpful.

I'll bet all your neighbors got the same price. They probably drive up and down every other street or so and take notes on the approxiamate size of yards. I coud do this in many neighborhoods........just call them all 50 dollar yards and you are set. I

Its actually a pretty good marketing strategy. They probably figure what the biggest yard in any given subdivision is and call that the "minimum price" They base all the prices off that amount. If your yard is smaller, you get the screw job.
