        Very neat! Give us the low down how the walk through goes.

        How much area will need to be mowed, trimmed, etc

        How long you are estimating it will take.

        Also, who takes care of each home? Is it up to the home owner? Can you market to them if you land this job?

          man HOA can be the biggest pain in the a$$, ask what happened to the last guy? Ask what they would where they would like to see improvements. You need a strong contact, they will ask you to do all kinds of stuff out side of your contact.

            you just need to submit a detailed contract covering all the bases of what will be done and what will not be done includeing the prices for the work proposed as well as rates for additional work.

            also, don't give them the brother in law discount thinking it will lead to getting more because if thats all the common area then you won't be getting anymore and as long as you do a great job at a resonable price the home owners will take notice and hire you so you don't need to pander to them for those customers.

            outside of that you just need your ducks in a row like the insurances and display a professional image and it will all be good.

            but i assume you allready now that, good luck and let us know how you made out.

              We bid on lot of HOA's and things are getting really weird. We're generally the middle priced bidder and I was told on the last one we just bid on that the other bids were coming in at $11.35 to $17.07 per labor hour. I can't believe that anyone is bidding at these prices. You have to carry gen. liab. ins., worker's comp, auto ins. and be licensed to do HOA work. So, be prepared to have everything in order and they're looking at ridiculously low bids now.

                Were these bids placed at locations where they check for proof of insurance?

                  Yes, proof of gen. liab., auto & worker's comp insurance is required. Also, contractor's license proof.
