Lake property is special. It also comes with special rules. If you are a first-time lake property buyer take your time is the best advice we can give you. We’ve seen our share beautiful homes built in flood zones. It’s completely avoidable but all to frequent their is an urge to save time or save money that creates a huge financial burden. A knowledgeable surveyor can help avoid this.
We can establish the limits of the flood zone and place your home in a safe place. We can place a benchmark on site for your builder to work off of and we can come out and verify construction throughout the process. Not building but buying? Please get a survey during your due diligence period. Don’t wait until the last minute. Don’t wait to see if the bank needs it. Don’t let anyone talk you out of the only service that can show certain potential hazards like flood zone issues, easements, encroachments or projections.
