What is a fair profit for a pool builder in NY/NJ?
How much profit is reasonable for a pool builder that is subcontracting most of the work? I am trying to get a very good quality, approx 20' x 40', 8' deep gunite pool built in NY suburb. (no fancy stuff/no decking) If I could get a pool builder to build it for $10,000 profit, I think that would be fair, and it would be worth it to me. (This would be $50,000 total based on 20% gross profit over his cost, assuming his cost is $40,000). If it is a lot more than $10,000 - it might be worth my time to do an owner/builder pool. I would like to negotiate the price with a pool builder, and I do not want to be unreasonable. Thank you very much for any help you can offer (to both me and my prospective pool builder).
