what do we charge for interior painting job?

.we have a new baby and need extra money. A friend who does property mgmt offered us an interior painting job but we have no idea what to charge! any help?? Thank you!!

Details:

  1. A bridal shoppe owner paid a decorator $75.00 an hour to apply a faux finish. Since rooms in certain homes can be enormous, I'd charge by the hour. If you are shy, charge $50.00 an hour. But think about this, my cousin paid some guy to clean her house rain gutters for $65.00 an hour. My plumber came and snaked out my sewer. It took him 15 minutes and he walked away with $60.00. I need to have a cement walk laid up to, alongside and along the back of my house. I'd say that's roughly 70 feet in length and by no means more than a yard wide and it's going to be 3 days work to jack hammer the existing cement, haul it away and pour new stuff. Price for this will be 22 hundred. My dentist charges about $40.00-$60.00 to fill a tooth. I know some artists who will paint your portrait for $100.00 an hour and times that by 40 hours. Let's not even consider what our car mechanics charge. Oh here's a good one, if you didn't have health insurance, how much would you pay just to walk into your doctor's office? In short, how much is your time worth?
  2. you can charge by the job or by the hour. Call around to painters and get price quotes on similar sized jobs. I did painting for a friend and she gave me 500$ for three bedrooms about 10 X 10 each. Keep in mind you will probably need to purchase the supplies you are going to need, paint, tape rollers and brushes pans etc.
