Before buying a home its imporant to ahve a survey performed. In addition to identifying lot lines, a survey can tell us if there are any enchroachments such as a fence, garage, or othre structure from an adjacent property.

The cost of a survey runs betwee $$350 and $500 for a home on a smaller lot. Prices can be hihger for larger parcels.

At teh completion of the survey, you will recieve a nice map of the property showing all; lot lines and structures. Often teh survey will have a soft copy they can email you as well.

Another service a surveyor provides is an 'elevation certificate". Your insurnace company willl need this IF your home is  located in a flood zone. The cost for a Elevation Certificate is about $500.
