how to see property boundaries?

I'm looking at some unimproved property, and they said you could see the property boundaries on Zillow ?  How do I do that ?

For the best source of that would be to get a survey. I wouldn't trust the lines on a site. Not every county in every state is going to have the plot survey on file. That is going to be your best buy. You can also get a stakes and bounds survey which is much better but also about 10x the cost depending on the size of the parcel.

We are still trying to provide property boundaries for every home on the website but as of the mean time we are only able to provide boundaries for homes that have parcel information from the county records.

Please view map.

Thank you.

What ever you do - do not rely on any website's photos or descriptions of property to base your decision to make a purchase.  These websites describe properties from all over the nation and simply cannot provide accurate information on every single home in America.

As a purchaser you need to perform the most accurate due dilligence possible so that you go into this purchase fully informed. It is far better to spend the required funds now to hire a surveyor than to be surprised by different property lines later.

Also, depending on your plans for this property, you may want to consult with the city regarding zoning to make sure that you can legally use the land for your desire purpose. 

Good luck!

If you open the listing and scroll down to Maps and Views, you should be able to see the approximate boundry lines that the Tax Map Records have on file.  If you are serious about the property however and would like to purchase it, I would certainly recommend getting a survey done.  There are several ways to go about that.
