Do you ever adjust your prices because you are sympathetic to someone?
I recently let a young woman with a son who is getting a divorce stay in studio for $30 a day for 4 days. I’ve also lowered my monthly rate to $800 because a man was bringing his dog to town for cancer treatment, and I’ve hosted visiting professors for that rate as well. I’ve raised my monthly rate to $1100 when I want to help someone because of the inconvenience it causes me having a long term guest.
I do my homework but also trust my gut and do it sparingly. Anyone else do this? Got burned? Is it a matter of time before I get taken advantage of?
