I am a 35yr old woman with two sons. I have been in busniess for the last couple of years and I want to really start moving forward with my business. My business is located just outside Charlotte, NC. I have been given an opportunity to bid on seven properties all ownede by the same gentleman. They consist of several mills, I have never even thought about how to bid on commercial property. Can anyone help me or guide me in the right direction on where to start. I really need to get this account. I have my oldest son who is 18 and one more 31yr old who actually does the work. I just need to know how to price things... Please help!

Hello JC,

Welcome to our forum!

Tell us about the property you want to bid on. Give us some details to help you create a price.

I am going to take some pictures of the said areas today and try and post them to help give an idea of what I am dealing with. Can someone tell me how to figure out the square foot of the property needing maintenance? I will take all the help I can get. My main job has cut me back to 2 days a week, so I really need to get this account and some more too. I am running out of time too, grass season is basically here!!

You should be able to measure the length and width of the property with a measuring wheel.

Then you take the width x the length in ft and you get the sq ft measurement of the area.

Does that help?
