New roof? Large tract? Strange or interesting geography? You can now simplify your real estate selling needs, documenting and communicating attributes such as these with ease – with the help of drone technology, or unmanned aircraft systems (UAS).
It’s not sci-fi
No longer hampered by Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations, there’s now an easy to understand system and set of rules for flying a commercial drone, and the real estate industry is taking notice. Should you take advantage of this technology when appraising real estate and gathering listing photos? You betcha.
Hold on to your hats
Real estate selling won’t be this interesting again until the implementation of driverless cars. This booming and exciting technology has been around for awhile, but only recently has the FAA finalized its plan to “fully integrate the UAS into the National Airspace System (NAS) harmoniously, side-by-side with manned aircraft, occupying the same airspace and using many of the same air traffic management systems and procedures…” without training that requires a brain and physique that rivals a NASA astronaut.
This picture might be worth more than a thousand words
It’ll also take you more than a thousand words of reading to figure out how to do it yourself. It’s not a flying camera, folks, it’s an aircraft – and you have to be certified to fly one. But you no longer need a pilot’s license and a fortune in time and monetary investment to put on your flying hat. Interested? Take a look at the FAA’s Airmen Certification Standards. Rest assured, commercial flying rules are common sense:
1. Get your license.
2. Choose a unit that weighs less than 55 pounds to avoid registration.
3. Stay in uncontrolled/Class-G airspace.
4. Keep drones in your line-of-sight during operation, under 400-feet.
5. Sorry, no fly-bys of people or planes – or driving drones from your car.
