I’ll never forget what my contractor told me in the midst of my home remodel.
“After I’m done building your bathroom, I’m heading over to Pacific Heights and charging 2X more for a similar-sized bathroom,” he said.
“How is that possible when sheetrock, pipes, tiles, and fixtures all cost about the same?” I asked.
“Easy. Rich people don’t care. They have so much money that as long as I provide them good service, I can charge them whatever I want.” he said somewhat smugly.
“Good to know! Well, thanks for building my bathroom for the price we agreed upon. It’s looking great,” I replied.
I was going to tell him that if he did a good job building my master bathroom that he could then work on remodeling my condo in Pacific Heights. But after his comment, I decided not to!
