Here in central MA going rate seems to be 2-2.25 per square foot wired to code. Add 75 each for recessed light, 75 for closet light, more than three heat zones add more, extra flood lights add more.

Here in North Central WV, most of my quotes work out to $2 to $3 a square foot. Do not bid jobs by the square foot unless you are interested in going broke fast.

However, having a rough idea what the square foot price range should be is a good way to make sure you haven't forgotten something in your takeoff.

At one time, I was involved in manufactured buildings. I kept very detailed records on quotations & here is what I remember. The price per square foot is greatly influenced by the floor plan, especially by kitchen counter layout & wall layout as regards to doors. This could swing the square foot price by 75 cents & this was back in the mid 80's.

Another important factor is the size of the house. That $1200, or whatever, for the 200 amp service is a small charge on a 4000 sf house, but raises the square foot price quickly as the house gets smaller.

Most electricians in my area work out a price per opening. Then we have an adder for dimmers, 3 ways, 4 ways, GFI's, WP GFI's, service, air conditioner feed, you get the picture.

Keep the following in mind, the first thing to do is to disable the subtraction key on your calculator. [Linked Image]
