your looking at about £10K.

This figure isnt a true valuation but i reckon thats a bottom end figure.

you will have hosting and maintenance on top.

The price is acutally determined by what you're willing to make it for and what client is willing to pay for it. It is not uncommon to see bids that are 10x higher than similar bids. Why the big difference? There are no set prices in Web development so a wide range of factors come into play. Your experience, how much a risk the client think you are, your professional level etc. If you were in my market, it would probably be double what DJ said, unless you went with a pretty new company.

Did you ever try to put together a budget on how much you need to make a year and determine some kind of hourly wage based on that?
