    I've always just eyed the lot and quoted it based on what I saw. But if I get into bigger lots, it becomes more difficult to come up with a #. Just wondering from those of you who measure the square footage of the lot, what price range should I be multiplying the area by. :salute:

    I base mine on the time it takes to do it. A nice big square smooth lot can take less time the a smaller lot with a lot of little "nooks and crannies" in it. You have to factor that into your bid too. It takes practice to be able to judge a lots price quickly.
