• Importance of a Survey When Purchasing Real Estate

    Clients often ask when purchasing a home, “Do I really need a new survey?” My reply ninety-nine percent of the time is, “Yes!” Clients are purchasing what is most likely to be their largest asset and the survey is the blueprint of what they are purchasing.
