The Value of a Land Surveyor
There are limits to everything in life, including your property. And while the home buying process can be stressful, at times, there are key players to every transaction to help lessen the burden. You’ve likely hired a realtor and a lawyer to help facilitate the deal, but what about a land surveyor? They’re not on your team until you put them there. Do yourself a favor and request that the survey for closing be certified to the 2017 GVLSA standards.
Picture this. You’ve just purchased your dream home and you’re ready to install a fence. You can’t find your property markers, but the layout of your land leads you to believe the property lines are pretty clear. So, you put up the fence. Next thing you know, your neighbor’s at your door, with their survey map, showing you your fence extends two feet over their property line. You’ve now got to incur the cost and time of tearing down the fence and rebuilding it. Better than than an addition to your home or garage, but all this headache could have been avoided… if only you had a land surveyor on your team.
Buying a home is the most significant purchase you’ll make in your lifetime. Don’t skimp on the details. A land surveyor safeguards your property and all that lies upon it. They know what’s at stake when it comes to entitlements and limitations of your land. Use their knowledge to your benefit and put a trusted surveyor in your corner today.
