My tile guy is charging me $14 sq ft to install ceramic tile for me. That includes all materials including backer board .I am responsible for the purchase of the tile. I just wanna know if this is a good ,fair ,or bad price? And what is a fair price to charge my customers ?

How can anyone but you determine the price you can or will pay for a hooker or a sub? Not that they are the same, but the actual decison of value vs cost is 100% local to you, not an internet board.

think about what you're asking.

$14/sf might be high for a 2000 square foot rectangle with no interior cuts and only straight cuts at the outside walls. On the other hand, it might be real cheap for a 25 sf cut up bathroom.

Then there is the access issue. Are the tiles cut outside then carried up 10 stories of stairs?

Is that hooker distracting the help?
