I've used TT a lot over the last few years and have been extremely profitable. I get picked over other pros because I can price myself lower but that all changed with the new price points. They told me a few weeks ago that they determine the price based on averages for this work, but that doesn't work. I tend to get 90% of the quotes I send because I'm priced so well(most the time well under the average). I sent a quote for a $50.00 job and it cost me $26.00! They said the "average" for that job was $200, but that is extremely high and if I want to accept a low price for something and the customer wants too as well, why won't TT allow for that? Everyone is being forced to raise prices. Not good for pros and not good for customers. Thumbtack is basically setting market prices and raising prices for everyone by being extremely greedy. The idea that its more expensive because you only pay for people who reply doesn't work when 95% of my old quotes booked me and it cost me less. Anything over 10.00 for a quote will send TT into the ground.
