Welcome to the world of Land Surveying. Ever since the beginning of time man has worked, fought, and died for the ownership
of land. Land is also a limited commodity. As the population of the planet increases, the amount of land ownership increases
and thus land becomes more valuable. There are many ways in which a person can acquire land and there are many ways a person
can lose land.
The purchase of land can be an important part of your overall investment portfolio. Investors know
this, and hire a registered land surveyor to survey the property in which they have interest. If there are problems with the
property then the price can be negotiated. If there are no problems with the property then they have documented proof of what
they own and thus have a sound investment.
Homeowners make a big investment in the purchase of their residence. For
many it is the biggest single purchase of their life. Yet many homeowners rely on the advice of the real estate agent, seller,
or title attorney, as to what they are buying. Like the investor, the homeowner needs to hire a professional, someone not
involved with the purchase. The small price of a mortgage inspection survey or boundary survey should not be overlooked when
making such a big investment.
