How to Get a Site Plan Online
Let’s say that you need to have a new site plan created (and if you’re reading our blog, there’s a good chance you do!). You essentially have two options: have a surveyor come out to your property and draw up a site plan, or have your site plan created online.
Your first thought might be to just have a surveyor come out. After all, you’re going to get the most accurate results if you actually have someone setting foot on your property, right? While that’s debatable, there’s one thing about hiring a surveyor that’s not: they can be incredibly expensive. According to HomeAdvisor.com, the national average cost for someone to come out and conduct a land survey is $753, and rates can go as high as $1,500+ depending on the size of the area and your location.
The Nuts and Bolts of Online Site Plans
Your other option, of course, is to order a site plan online. While some homeowners might worry that they can’t get an accurate site plan remotely, MySitePlan actually uses the most up-to-date satellite imagery, GIS information, county parcel maps, and other data sources to digitally create plot plans that are both accurate and detailed.
The other nice things about ordering a site plan online are that it’s quick (MySitePlan will have your document to you within one to two business days) and, even more importantly, it’s a lot less expensive than hiring a surveyor. How much so? Try ten times cheaper for our most basic plan, and about six times cheaper for our most detailed plan. You’ll only pay between $69.99 and $129.99, depending on the level of detail required.
Save Money, Save Time and Effort
Just as any good online transaction should be, ordering a site plan online is incredibly straightforward. You can order a basic, medium detail, or detailed site plan straight from our website just by giving us your address, selecting a file type for the document, and uploading any helpful property documents that you have. (If you don’t have any, that’s fine, too!)
If you have specific questions before you order or want to learn about getting a customized site plan, you can fill out our short contact form, and we’ll get back to you right away. It’s up to you to decide whether you want to hire a surveyor or order a site plan online, but we hope that, now that you know how easy it is, you’ll choose the latter.
