Working for so little in OZ.
Hello fellow cleaners, I have just started out in the game doing a little real estate work, you know end of lease sort of cleans. I have done my homework as to what others are charging for cleaning and came across several cleaners working for as little as sixteen dollars per hour, Australian. How on earth can these people be making money?
The problem is that the real estate agents don't care just as long as the cleaning gets done. Now little old me comes along with my prices which here in oz can be so little yet so high. (Huge price bracket) for the same cleaning. I feel I am somewhere in between with my prices eg, covering costs and making profit which is all good but I keep thinking that these others that are charging so little have the bulk of the market and are getting continous work.
I clean meticulously to impress the agents but at the end of the day I feel that they go for the cheaper quote. Any advise for a worried newbie.
