Question

What would you consider a fair profit? A low profit? A high profit? In a percentage form.


Answer

There is no correct answer to this question. The appropriate profit depends on a number of factors, such as, but not limited to, your costs, (overhead, labor, and other), competition, size of account, frequency and services provided. That being said, you are normally looking at between 1% and 400%.
I would suggest you review all the previous questions that we have answered regarding bidding, costs, and this subject which can be found in the archive section under bidding and estimating.
