I was planning to get a survey done for a single family house that I was planning to buy. Does anyone know what the current rates for the same are?

Thank you,

The rates would range from $350 -500 for a typical Skokie Home. When you buy, normally in Skokie, the sellers would be the one to hire the surveyor. This is for normal sale. If it is a foreclosure or short sale, then you do have to pay your own survey. Call me 847-331-2710 for any more queries, and i can refer good surveyor to you.

Sambotski ?
Sabotski ?

the correct answer is Samborski Mattis Land Surveyors. No idea what they charge, but a quick call to them would provide the answer. Check out their website.

My experience with surveyors in the area has been that a survey runs somewhere in the $300.00 - $600.000 range, depending on the size of the property and the company you choose.

If you're planning on buying a property in Skokie, you should be aware that the seller traditionally supplies one (at their expense) at closing. So unless you absolutely need one in advance of the closing, save your money and let the seller pay for it.

It depends a little on the size of property and which surveying company you are going to use.
Just call a few and tell them the lot size of the property, and they can tell you how much it will be
approximately. Usually in the purchase of a property the seller is responsible for the survey
unless you are buying a foreclosure etc.... where that is not provided by the selling side.
Sabotski is local.... give them a call...

All the best to you

The best answer can be from a surveyor. Sambotski is located in Skokie just off the corner of Oakton and Lowell.
