Over the years that mowed line between lots can move little by little, neighbor change, landscaping added, and fences are built all without a survey. The true location of the line becomes blurred.

Your home is your most important investment. You wouldn’t buy a car without test driving it first, so you shouldn’t buy a house without a clear map of what you will own, showing property corners, any encroachments, easements, or rights-of-way that affect the property.

What does a Survey Cost?

It depends on the size, shape, terrain, vegetation, record description and time since the last survey. A 5 acre flat open pasture takes less time than a 5-acre wooded lot. An average 0.5-acre subdivision lot usually takes 10 man hours to complete. 
  • 1 hour to research deeds.  
  • 2 person survey crew on site 3-4 hours to measure and map the property. 
  • 2 hours to draft the survey.

However, all 0.5 acres lots are not the same and the fee can vary from $500 to over $1000.
