In the past three years, aerial drones have added new dimension to real estate photography and videography. Cameras mounted to a drone can be flown high above a property to capture unique exterior character, landscaping, or breathtaking views.
Drones are best used in combination with interior video or photography to give online buyers a complete sense of the interior and exterior of a property. They can also be useful in highlighting a neighborhood, or showcasing proximity to schools, downtown areas, and other attractions.
Drone video is often offered as part of a comprehensive real estate marketing package that includes professional interior and exterior property marketing.
Unique aerial perspectives get buyers’ attention

According to statistics, 71% of home sellers in the US prefer an agent who uses drones for photography.
In 2016, 35% of all recent buyers of new homes were Millennial, more than double the amount of boomer buyers. Generation X was the second large group of buyers at 26%.
The drones enable the photographers to shoot up to 400 feet high from the ground level.
