getting quotes for new hardwood floors, need feedback


Want some feedback on the quotes i have received so far. I have 1200 sqft of flooring that currently has carpet. 3 bedrooms where carpet will be removed but existing floor not removed. family room and living room where in living room the floor will be removed and family room only has plywood under carpet, 1 other bedroom with plywood under carpet. getting red oak solid wood, with finishing onsite. 3 and quarter inch wide planks. i have received a range of 10,500 all the way up to 19,000. have received quotes from lowes, contractors and subcontractors. the most common qoute i have received is the 10,500 dollar range. what do you guys think out there. that includes removing carpet, installing floors, finishing floors.

i just feel i am getting so ripped off. maybe just being paranoid. i live in the san francisco bay area.
