I do them. I currently have two properties that are just shy of 1 acre. I also have properties that are tiny. It really is not that big of a deal as long as I only have a couple of them.
I love these people mowing up to an aces for 32.00 do you know what hey are charging their clients. For an acre we get around 175.00. Takes about an hour.
We dont cut anything for less than 35.00 and that is only up to 5k
I really do not care what Cyprexx charges their clients. My deal is with them. I fire employees when they piss and moan about me making more money than them so why should I complain about what I make in a deal I agreed to.
Around here you would be lucky to get $100 to mow an acre. Typically you get about $50 to $75 at the most. You can say you would not do it at that price, but when the mortgage is due and the kids have empty bellies I imagine that would change.
I past on the $35 I was given! They were paying $45 until last summer! I just laugh at them! They try to say if you do the initials you have to do recuts, as if you were making a killing off of the initials!!!! ps I`m doing very little for them now! Realtor are calling and asking about properties not getting mowed or not entire lawn being mowed!
I am happy you have to do recuts on properties you do initials for. I hated it when they had separate initials vendors because they sucked. In fact most of them would have to have done the job a lot better just to suck at it. Grass not mowed, debris pitched into the empty lot next door or carried to the back side of the property and dumped and attics still full of debris. And none of them have ever heard of soap, own an edger or have a clue what a ladder is.
I would have to spend insane amounts of time documenting, bidding and completing the initial services as a maintenance vendor. Inspectors would try and hammer me for issues that were left by the initials vendors and then I would have to spend even more time pointing out that I was waiting on approval of my bid to complete the job someone else had already been paid for so the issues were not mine to deal with yet.
