Hello all! Sorry, but I can vent with you guys. Priced two jobs for people who are neighbors at homes valued at over $4,000,000 in total. Each came to over $1,000 at our “premium” pricing. First quote, when we knew we wouldn’t get the job: talk with next next quote and see if you can sweeten the deal. Coming from a guy who just closed on his house for $2.5 million. 9k sqft house.
Quote next house, email estimates. First guy follows up with:
Thanks, $1k is a bit much but we appreciate it. I can’t speak for N* but I think she is passing. If it takes one day for my house and one day for hers, I would think $800 each $1,600 for two days of work would be reasonable, but I don’t run your business and wish you the best!
We’re in our slow period and booking work starting 3rd week of February. We’ve done about 10 quotes in this neighborhood over a 3 year period and have landed ONE job there and the one we did get griped about the price too.
Anyway, feeling relieved. Between both houses it was a total of 160+ windows and over 1,300 cut ups. Annoyed that someone with their kinda money need to haggle down a small business owner to feed their ego.
