Firstcreature, A survey can cost $350 and up It depends upon the size, location, elevation and use of the property (residential, waterfront, mixed use, vacant land etc)

Typically the survey is order when you have your loan commitment and going to closing. If you are paying cash it will depend upon the closing agent if a survey is required.

If the Seller has a survey and there have been no changes then the Survey might be able to be re-certified at closing. Check with your closing agent.

The survey is used for homeowner's insurance and title insurance. Underwriting will review the survey if you will be financing the home.

Firstcreature,


Just checking back in with you. Lot's of great answers given below got me thinking. If you are not currently working with an Agent call me right away.

My services are free to you and just for choosing me as your agent I will pay your survey for you at closing of your new home. Now others may match my offer but none the less I am here to assist you in any way I can. Good Luck no matter what you choose.

You can shop for a survey and can get a typical survey for $250. Title companies will try to direct the orders to a particular surveyor but if you are paying for it you can select.

Also if you are in a flood zone you may want the survey to do an "elevation certificate" at the same time to see if you can qualify for flood insurance discounts. Sometimes the flood maps are incorrect and to fight FEMA you MUST provide an elevation certificate. It's cheaper to have it done while the surveyor is already at the house. If you're not in a flood zone then no need to put out the extra money for this.

This local surveyor, Don Williamson is experienced, reliable and may do your survey for $250 if you tell him that is what you're willing to pay:

If you need the survey for your mortgage, the title company doing your closing can supply the Certifications to the surveyor.

All the best,

generally surveys cost 350 to 450 dollars on most transactions. If you are not working with a realtor currently I would love to help you with any needs that you may have. Trulia is okay for searching around for different types of properties but their data is 3 to 4 days old if you go to my website at http://www.thelonghometeam.com you will find that our MLS feed is updated every 10 to 15 minutes. If I can be of any service to you please fill free to email me or call me as you will find all of my contact information on our profile here on Trulia or at our website I hope that I have answered your question correctly

Wow, I didn't realize what price range a survey fell into. Though it can lead to a lot of useful information, so it would make sense considering how much help it can be. How long is the information valid on a survey?
