I win 1 out of 10 bids because I'm "too steep/expensive", but that doesn't mean I'm about to squeeze my price. I know what I want to make - a fortune, damnit! Alright, maybe I close a bit more than that, but I really do lose a lot to lower bids by competition. If that's how people are going to shop then that's how I'm gonna walk! I like, more than anything, to show up to a HO's home and bid a job where they stopped halfway thru because "painting is hard and takes forever!" Then I submit a bid and they respond, "thanks for the bid, Ryan. We are holding off on painting right now, but will let you know when we get back into it." (That's after "no rush" on the phone, to, "in the next couple weeks", in person) They might as well keep on looking at that point, because if my bid scared you away now it's not going to get any cheaper. Unless they email me in a few months simply stating, "We're ready!", I don't want anything to do with that job.
People are people and want the most for the least. As painters, we are supposed to offer that.
Remember, we don't need to feed our kids and dogs, we don't need to pay rent or have insurance, our cars run on air and our insurance is free... remember?

60 miles SW of Chicago, rural area. Seems a little low to me. $550 would be a guess with out seeing the room. This would include walls, ceiling base, and a couple of doors. No materials.

400 didnt include any doors or the ceiling....just walls, base, and trim. I came down a little because I am painting the entire house with 4 bedrooms.

Then I make up for wasted gas by working for people that value my services and what they are worth. And really, you gotta focus on marketing to neighborhoods nearby - not much gas used then. Work smarter, not harder.
