Re: "re-use" fees

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I think you are getting some confusing responses. Here is my response just
to get you even more confused!! I would charge a base price of say $1.25 to
$1.50 per square foot of each floor plan then add say $200.00 for each
modified elevation. Afterwards add say $100.00 to $200.00 for each
additional home depending on the number of the homes to be built in that
particular tract.
To me the term RE-USE is when the same plans are to be built in another
site. In that case I would charge 75% of the original fees, even if I spend
less than an hour to seal the plans. Any modification will be extra and
shall be based on hourly rate up to 100% of the original fees.
