Was he shocked that the figure was too high, or too good to be true?

Re: Painting Estimate New Construction


they built 4 town homes 3 bedrooms each 3 floors and i guess they did not budget enough for the painting or something it really pisses me off that people are always looking for a handout when it comes to painting
70 cents a square foot f walls is good i think and from what i have researched and i am also going to go 50 cents a foot for the trim am i off on my price or are they just trying to lowball me
