If yo ask her and find out what the expectation is, you will know right away as whether or not you even want to proceed.

I hate to keep harping on this but you really have to know what they are thinking about in price. If she is thinking high, you could come in under that and she will think you are a hero. If she is thinking low, you would be best to walk away from it as you will lose money.

When you discuss upfront pricing with her, you can set up her expectations if she is not sure. I do not like going into something and spending the time crating and planning and then the customer says that they were thinking about half of the price. Have been done that road many time and have no desire to go down it again. It feels like waking into a cave without a light, just working in the dark.

Everybody can tell you where to put the price but the most important person to tell you the price is the customer.
