Are my prices too high? What are some ways to increase value/justify higher prices?
I just opened my own residential cleaning company and after doing research, found out that the price range for cleaning services varied from a low of $50 all the way to well over $300 for house cleaning. Of course, this depends on square footage, services offered, etc.
I base my prices on square footage and for a medium-level clean (not too light, not deep) I charge $149 for 2K-2.5K square feet, $199 for 2.5-3K, $249 for 3-3.5K, $299 for 3.5-4K and so on.
I know that the prices are on the high-end, but I want to know if they're TOO high.... i.e. not likely to get a large customer base. Friends and family who say "too high" tend to have the newest iPhone in their pocket.... that's why I wanted to ask the professionals.
Thanks a lot - I'm a new member, but have been following the forum for quite some time and I know you guys will be a great help. I'll be happy to provide any additional information and answer questions, but I might not be logged back in until tomorrow.
