I am a FAA licensed SUAS (Small Unmanned Aerial System), AKA Drone operator (my license says “pilot”, much to my actual pilot friends’ dismay).
Currently, I use a DJI Mavic Air in conjunction with other digital equipment to shoot aerial stills and video, as well as my listing photography.
According to research,
“… homes with aerial images sold 68 percent faster than homes with standard images. Video tours that incorporate drone footage are also a great way to make your property stand out and to attract new listings. According to the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR), 73 percent of homeowners say that they are more likely to list with a real estate agent who uses video to market their home; however, only 9 percent of agents create listing videos. An Australian real estate group reported seeing a 403 percent increase in traffic for listings that included video as compared to listings without.”
