Best Surveyor in Portland, Oregon

Hey team,

I need to look over a boat down in the Rose City, and need to hire their best surveyor. Only I don't know who she/he is. Who is the best Oregon has to offer to tell me if that boat my wife has fallen in love with is a dream or a dog?

Thanks all.

Re: Best Surveyor in Portland, Oregon

I had the same question. The quality of surveyors like any other profession is highly variable. Hiring a surveyor occurs only in those generally infrequent times when we are purchasing a boat, so it is difficult to establish a relationship with a surveyor, yet he is extremely important in making a successful transaction. I have met some who are lazy, and did not do a thorough job. I think using one recommended by the seller or the broker may sound innocuous but is susceptible to conflict of interest. Both have an interest other than your best interest and if the surveyor is recommended by the broker, the surveyor can have some allegiance to the broker as well as the client. If the surveyor brings too many problems to light, the broker may not call on him the next time if he loses the sale, and the broker has a great deal more influence on the surveyor who buys seldom than the broker who is involved in the transaction often. I think you are on the right track to get a surveyor whose has a good reputation and who has no conflict of interest. Far more discussion and investigation is necessary on this item.
