Question about fee

Let me ask you fellow freeelancers a question.

I've been proposed a feee of $50 for modelling 3-4 rooms with basic furnishings, as well as $200 for 4-5 rooms fully furnished with furniture, wall prints and ornaments. Schedule is strict (about 48 hrs). Realism, not sketchup-like stuff.

I wonder is this is the usual amount currently. I've been involved with logos and textures for some time lately, so maybe I've lost the pulse of the 3D archviz (actually, real estate) situation.

Any answer welcome.

break it down into hours, how long will it take you in your opinion and how much per hour do you feel you should be earning. Honestly 2 hours at $50 flat rate is already getting into poor pay while I doubt your going to have a room with details and including furnishings done unless it's all with presets from somewhere. Even the $200 rate sounds like squat for the amount that has to be modeled. I mean now your talking an entire apartment, that you are modeling and furnishing? between 4-10 hours for any even decent rate, so I'd say no not a good deal personally, 10 hours gets you $20/hr, if your more junior you could even go as little as $15/hr, that's saying your worth only $31,000 a year, which is a sucky junior rate, only gets you 13.3 hours to do it all in. If you think it will take you a whole 12 hour day, or two 8 hours days minimum to do the models, then amount offered is already under spec.

Thanks Lucent, I fully agree with your opinion, only, in these sad times, I wondered if fee used to get so low...
I admit that I've not fully grasped your math, but general sense is clear.
