A survey is a detailed map/plot of the general layout of your home and lot. It contains all of your homes boundaries. It also maps out the home's buried utility lines. It also gives an exact location of your property with a lot/block description and may even contain degrees. A survey is required on every new home purchase if you are taking a mortgage on the property. Even if you are not taking a mortgage, a survey allows your title company to remove any exceptions to title insurance coverage that would otherwise be disclosed by an accurate survey.

Over time, fences and walls may have encroached over the property line, so the survey provides certainty that the lot you are purchasing has the expected boundaries and easements.

Every new house should have a detailed plotting done. That's known as a survey. It is particularly important if you are applying for a mortgage loan and securing it with insurance. A survey includes the entire layout of the house as well as its outer boundaries. Most real estate companies like have property surveying as a specialized service.

An electronic survey is a survey that is done on the computer. This is sort of the new age way, and is compared to the old way of hand writing a survey.

When surveying on the civil engineering or construction site it is often necessary to find the coordinates of new control points or points of detail. This is relatively simple if both the existing and the new point are accessible but often one of them is not and so other techniques are required. For example the new or existing survey points may be targets on walls, points on high buildings or points on land to which access is denied. When the existing points are accessible but the new point is not then the survey needs to employ an intersection technique. When the existing points are not accessible but the new point is then the survey needs to employ a resection technique.

The cost of home home survey, although it can vary by area is generally over one-hundred dollars and often as high as $350. The more work that the surveyor needs to do, the higher the cost. A large property or commercial survey can be much higher. Keep in mind, that you can generally use an exhisting survey when you refinance and most often will not have to recur the cost. these days its so expensive like, for a modern home its about 800,000 to 1 mil

This depends entirely upon where you plan to build your house. If you plan to build in the South, then no. If in tornado ally, then most definitely.

I use Clear and have no problems. Consumer will probably have done a survey of this in recent years. No point in going back more than three years because of rapid industry change.

It is called an "appraisal" and can be done by any licensed real estate appraiser in your area. It should incorporate the features of the house, the location, and recent comparable sales in the area.
