I’ve always hated doing townhouses for the fact that it was taking time away from higher paying contracts - that being said though I thought why not launch a campaign in slow months doing townhouses? They have like 10 windows. I wouldn’t mind doing them for like 50$ per townhouse.
Problem is that I don’t want one person to sign up and then just do that person for 50$ - that would be a waste of time and gas. But also whenever I would be asked to bid for a large number of townhouses and I gave 50-60$ then I always lost the bid.
Who the heck is getting these jobs and for how much?
Is it profitable - should I be jealous? Or is it a big waste of precious time?
Does anyone have experience with these? I’ve been approached by both homeowners looking for their own townhouse maintenance, also ones who are collectively as a group looking for a window cleaner to do several townhouses and also by property management companies
Townhomes pose many challenges , from no parking and parking faraway to jumping around or into balconies . That’s not my windows it’s my neighbor, yes I’ve cleaned the neighbors window by accident. But the worst for me is walking around a building with my big ladder to do the back . We do townhomes , but our minimum is much more than resi
Please stop charging such low prices. Do you not have minimums? If other pros are charging far more you can as well. I do not clean anyone’s home for less then 125.00 and even thats to low in my opinion.
I wouldn’t consider myself cheap - I charge 150 if an individual owner wants to get their townhouse done.
I think though our time is way better spent to just get the full contract and do each townhouse for less but a larger quantity… the issue though is every time I bid on a large contract it’s still to expensive so I’m not sure how much people are charging - I charge around 60$.
The other thing I hate is having to deal with the homeowners needing to be home to let us through to the back. This is the aspect that I hate the most.
