Drone photography for real estate professionals is the newest tool in the successful realtor’s arsenal to make their listings truly stand apart from the competition. In a buyer’s market, it is of utmost importance that a real estate broker is able to grab the attention of the prospective buyer better than their competition. Aerial photos of properties give an entirely new perspective that immediately grabs attention!
If you think it is expensive to hire a professional, just hire an amateur one time!
FAA Legal Requirements For Drone Videos and Photos For Realtors
While curb appeal is your client’s responsibility, web appeal is yours as a real estate agent. It is time to put down your iPhone and hire a professional! Did you know it is completely illegal to hire your neighbor’s nephew that got a drone for Christmas to take your aerial listing photos? The FAA requires that anyone using a UAS (Unmanned Aircraft System) for “commercial purposes” be Part 107 Certified. Taking aerial photo and/or videos of a Real Estate Listing is considered commercial purposes because ultimately, the home will be sold and money will exchange hands. Anything used in the marketing of that listing is considered commercial purposes… So even if you don’t directly pay the person to shoot the aerial photos and/or videos, they are still required to have a Part 107. In addition, the minimum age allowed by law for someone to fly a UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) is 16 years of age. So, it is not worth the risk of breaking the law and potentially losing your real estate license.
Commercial Real Estate Aerial Photos And Videos
Commercial Property listings truly shine with aerial imagery and video. We all know that commercial real estate is a little different than residential real estate. Every single thing you can do to set a listing apart could mean 1,000’s of dollars in additional commission versus the big ole’ goose egg!
