Average rate for painting per square foot?
As title suggest just wondering what an average range for painting per square foot is including paint, on an interior wall that just requires the average prep work.

As has been said, be aware of what paint is being quoted in the price. A better rate for cheaper paint wont make anyone happy.

I wouldn't say this upfront, but when they are done, don't forget to ask for leftover paint for touch-ups. If they are feeling generous, they might just give it away. If you ask before they begin, they generally wont.

We just painted our house - 1950sq.ft and paid 2200 for painting and spent $350 for the paint. The painters also said $1/sq.ft but since we chose all dark colors they had to do 2 coats in every other room.

I just used both of those last week to paint my rec. room. Good stuff. We definitely used less paint than expected because of the higher quality paint.
