Usually about $350-400 in our area. Sometimes more or less depending on the last time it was surveyed and the availability of site markings for an easy reference point. Also, outside of town usually incurs travel/fuel expense.

I should clarify that my property is in Northern Rhode Island and is surrounded by houses on three sides; the fourth side, which is the front of the house, faces the road. My house sits near the bottom of a hill so the land is sloping. I am preparing to have a fence put up and cannot find any of the markers. My house was built in 1948.

Since you cannot find the corner markings, maybe the $300-400 range. It may be they can find them with a metal detector - usually 1/2" steel rebar with a marker wood stake next to it, with or without an identifying cap, though the stakes tend to go away. If yours cannot be found then they can hopefully find ones at your neighbor's lots and come off there, or pick up survey points in the street.
