I know a guy that works a lot for Home Owners Associations. He does roofing, painting, concrete work, paving, carpentry - a real jack-of-all-trades. He tells me (I have no reason to think he's lying) he gets 50% upfront. I tell him I'm in the wrong business.

Rick, I ask for and usually get 50% in one form or another. Sometimes I have to break the job up and get the money for each segment. It helps a lot that I have been here for almost 25 yrs., have an excellent reputation and nearly all of my work comes from referrals.
