REcent experiences have provided a good remonder to me about the value of a quality survey of a property- whether your are a buyer or a seller. Having a survey completed before entering a transaction will save you time and money.
When we are listing property for sale- we always recommend completing survey before we go to work on marketing the property. The surevey is a good caption of what is being sold.
