Guest Blog - From Protect Your Boundaries
Selling a home can be a stressful experience, but with the help of a real estate professional you can ensure the right strategies are in place to achieve your ideal outcome. One of these strategies is to include a land survey plan as part of your seller’s package. A survey plan is an official document that shows your property’s boundaries and all its physical features, such as buildings, fences, sheds, pools, hedges and tree lines, etc., in relation to the property line.
Nothing slows a deal down like a potential buyer’s discovery that you have an unresolved boundary dispute under way with a neighbour or that there’s a shed or deck encroaching on a neighbour’s property. Tell your potential buyers that you have nothing to hide by including a survey plan in your seller’s package. This often helps reduce the number of conditions that come in on offers. Fewer conditions mean hotter bidding and that’s a good thing for you!
