Surveying Land with a Smartphone | Corona, CA

By Brittany Melling

Technology has come a long way. So much so, that our smartphones are now able to handle so many of the once complicated procedures and tasks that we always relied on professionals for. A great innovation in this regard has to do with surveying land. Many homeowners and real estate developers utilize their smartphones to conduct real estate surveys – with promising results.

In the past, we have always needed to hire a professional surveyor to come to our homes or businesses to take precise measurements. This is a very necessary aspect of dealing with real estate, but it requires appointments, scheduling, and it can add up to a lot of money being spent – especially if you are dealing with complex properties. A typical land survey in the United States is currently averaging at right around $500. This number can be much higher for larger properties.

If you are in need of a professional survey to finalize the sale of a property or want to confirm the exact measurements of a parcel before a purchase, it may make sense to hire a professional to get the reassurance that all aspects of the land are in order. However, there are times where you want to conduct a land survey for more casual purposes or simply to confirm the results of a previous survey. In this case, it makes much more sense to utilize your smartphone to get the job done.

Completing a basic land survey with your phone is extremely easy and, in most cases, it can be handled in as little as 10 to 20 minutes. The best thing about it is that it is usually free, which means that you can save yourself $500 by taking care of your survey on your own.
