    I used to bid condos per unit, per month.

    Basically, Five Star and I have had a conversation about this in a different post.

    Basically, I looked at the whole site, and figured what it would take to do the whole thing, for the year. If it included snowplowing, bed maintenance, fertilizing, whatever they wanted.

    Then I broke that cost down monthly, and divided that cost down to per unit.

    Say your total bid for the year was $36,000 for the year. If this includes snowplowing whatever.

    For a 12 month contract, that would be $3,000 / month.

    Now say there's 15 living units total that are planned for this development.

    When it's all built, then you will have 15 units sharing the cost of $3,000 / month, or $200 / month for each unit.

    I would break it down for him this way. This way, each time they get a unit built / sodded, you can tell him that it'll tack $200 (or your $xxxxx amount) monthly.

    Don't think you use my numbers, figure out your price for the entire complex once it's built. And then break the numbers down.
