We just went through our first year in the business and did pretty well. We were asked to quote a condo complex of $300-$400,00 homes for next year. Most lots were about 1/3 acre, some were larger. Complex had one large common area with a pond, which we quoted separately. There were 39 condos in the complex. Going rate in our area for professional companies is $75-$80 per hour. We bid 30 of the properties at $25/week, 5 at $30/week and 4 at $40/week. We were informed we were the highest bidder and did not receive the job. Are our prices out of line? The company that has the business now is a father and son outfit (nothing wrong with their work, but the people in the complex were complaining about their appearance and equipment). Just wanted to know what others out there may bid for a job like this one.
