In order to bury a loved one in a cemetery, the family must own a burial plot or cemetery plot. It must be mentioned that you are not purchasing a piece of land, but the right of interment.

Additionally, there are other cemetery fees which must paid in full before the cemetery can perform the process of internment. These fees include: Opening and closing, vault, setting fee, grave marker, installation fees and maintenance fees.
Typically you can purchase a burial plot directly form the cemetery. If you buy it from a sales representative at the cemetery, you are usually obtaining a non developed property, meaning, it is still an empty lot without tress, grass or any other landscaping. Additionally, the price is most likely the highest one you can find. In fact , on average, these types of properties are costing in Southern California around $7,000 per space and more! And most cemeteries usually require you to buy 2 spaces in their contracts. In contrast, our Cemetery properties are owned already by a private party, and the person no longer needs or wants the burial plot. This allows us to have access to these properties at discounted prices through cemetery brokers. The average discount on these burial plots is around 30% or more! And many times they are at ideal locations in the cemetery, and fully landscaped.
