Selling Your Home Hire A Drone

Look up in the sky, its a bird, its a plane.. its a DRONE? 

No it's not a military DRONE that fly's 300 MPH and cost $15 million - it's nothing but a small radio controlled  helicopter designed to take aerial photographs and videos.

About five years ago a company called DJI created the world's first hobbyist quad helicopter (drone) fitted to a Go-Pro video camera that weighs less than 1.5 lbs.  With the ability to climb to 100 - 200 feet (or more).. these small drones are able to showcase properties and homes like no other Google Map before. 

From muti-million dollar estates to small ranch homes, aerial video and photography brings a whole new dimension to your on-line listing.  From magnificent building and landscaping designs, in-ground pools, patio areas, neighboring mountain views, and unique property lines... aerial video's provide a very attractive seller's perspective that buyers simply can't appreciate at the typical 5 foot ground level.

With over 80% of home buyers shopping on line.. professionally prepared aerial videos can increase the time customers spend looking at your home - and provide the intrigue that captures the home shopper's attention and (most important) interest.   

A new technology that's growing by leaps and bounds.

Because flying anything above 300 feet involves FAA controlled air space - the FAA is  proposing all new guidelines to better define and organize the use of this technology - especially in populated areas (yes stupid people do stupid things.. the Drone that landed on the White House lawn was one dumb example). 

But for the simply purpose of a home listing - home buyers are encouraged to seek professional video photographers that may be using this new technology .. but be careful - once you see your home from above you may re-think putting it on the market its that exciting!
