Tips on Using Drone Photography for Real Estate

Drone photography is no longer a tool for cutting-edge, tech-savvy real estate selling agents. Drone photography is now a must-have feature that today’s sellers and buyers have come to expect. It delivers a wealth of information, showcasing expansive property views, the layout of luxury properties, home condition, neighborhood amenities, and more. However, if you’re ready to join the bulk of agents putting drone photography to work, you may be in for a few surprises. Make your initial flight into drone photography easier with these tips.

Get Ready for Flight

Using drone photography for real estate selling involves more than a buy and fly drone purchase. The FAA governs the use of commercial drones, including strict rules and the need for professional remote pilot certification. Thus, your first step in employing the use of this powerful marketing tool will involve either drone pilot certification, or enlisting the help of a licensed and insured local drone photographer.

I’ve Got My Drone Footage, Now What?

Once you’ve got your drone footage, put it to work for you with the Virtuets easy video building tool. Free for use with the Properties Online family of products, the Virtuets video builder will help you easily upload and integrate your drone and real estate footage into a comprehensive and compelling video property tour.

Put Drone Photography & Video Listings to Work for You

Share every listing, distributing footage via your website, social media, YouTube, Craigslist, and more. With the help of real estate listing videos, you can now quickly and easily showcase your listings, enjoying 1200% more shares than using text and photo imagery alone, according to recent research.

Sell Your Home Fast!

Selling in October? Tips for Selling that Home Fast

After summer, fall is the second best time of the year to sell a home. A golden time of the year for real estate selling, people are happy and relaxed as temperatures cool, with nary a worry over holiday chores. Now is the time for your listing clients to strike when the iron is hot, before the holiday sales slump. How can you help them attract fall home buyers?

Fall Cleaning

Rake dead leaves and clear overgrown vegetation for a lawn that looks low-maintenance, neat and trim. Likewise, ensure clean windows indoors and out for a home that outsparkles and outshines the competition

Festive Curb Appeal

Grab a couple large containers of fall arrangements such as mums and marigolds for your sidewalk or porch to imbue instant autumn curb appeal

Home Comfort Health

Nothing can bring real estate selling to a screeching halt like a failed HVAC or fireplace inspection. Encourage your sellers to engage in fall maintenance tasks now to prevent a red face (and potential lost sale) later. Bonus: These tasks help the home both smell and look better to potential buyers.  

Fall Scents and Scenery

At show time, add fall colors to the home with fall accent pillows, throws, and table décor. Simmer hot apple cider or place a tray of pumpkin muffins on the stove, imparting an enticing scent to the home.

Lighting to ‘Fall Back’ On

Turn on every light in the house. Lighting is essential to brightening rooms in the fall season.

Fall Treats

Invite those who visit the home to sign a guest book and leave feedback, offering a treat for buyer time, such as individually wrapped chocolates or caramel apples.
