$19 dollars a foot?!!!
And that was the low bid???
Sometimes I'm think I'm in the wrong business.
A landlord goes a whole month with a 30K plus investment house and, if there are no problems, makes maybe $300 before taxes.
A guy with a few tools puts up 180 feet of fence in a day
(and I have done this so I know it can be done) and after "costs" of $2500, makes $900 in one day!
He likely makes more because he gets materials at wholesale, not what regular people pay at the store. (180 ft x $13.88 a foot= $2500)
Now I understand "passive income" but the fence guy could just as easily make fence installs a passive income by hiring someone to do the work and paying them, say $20-30 an hour. Even at $30/he that's only $240 a day. Subtract that from $900 and that leaves $660 for making a phone call and maybe 30 minutes of checking on it. Even if it took 2 days and $480, that still leaves $420, almost 50 percent more than the $300 made on the rent.
Like I said, maybe I'm in the wrong business? --71.10.xx.xxx
