I presume you have the USA in mind. However, if you are asking the
question in a general way, it's very easy to do this in the UK.
All properties are registered under their title deed numbers and also
plotted on 6 inch scale maps (or larger plans). Thus a National Grid
Reference and Latitude/Longitude for every property is readily
available by just looking at the plan of the property. Hope this helps.
I can't see any other logical way of doing it really. Aren't
properties plotted onto maps in the USA too, so that purchasers etc
have legal definitions of their property boundaries?
Just relating boundaries to existing landmarks seems a very risky way
of doing things. Just imaging the effect of relating it to something
along an active fault for example :-)
