On this site it is often said that you are lowballing if you are working for less than $45-50 per hour. In the area that I live homes, insurance, taxes(property), wages, etc. are considerably lower than where many of you live and operate. My point is that many poeple around won't pay for or can't afford $50 per hour. I normally come in at $35-$40. That seems low to many of you I'm sure but my mortgage is less, my taxes are less, my insurance is less, and I'm very handy as far as instead of paying top dollar for new equipment I will locate quality items that less expirianced poeple have given up on because something was minor was wrong with it. Also when I buy new I always get the dealer connections and get it all at cost. I'd love to charge $50 per hour but the bottom line is knowbody else is around here and poeple just won't pay it. Any thaughts on how I'm currently operating is wrong or right. Open to advice.
