Real Estate Agents are Turning to Drone Videos to Stay Ahead of the Competition

Drones have changed many industries, but none has benefitted as much as the real estate industry. Taking aerial photos and drone videos have never been easier and more affordable.

Real estate agents used to rely on helicopters and airplanes as well as other very expensive methods to capture aerial photography. Not only were these options expensive, but the quality was hit or miss.

Drones, on the other hand, are not only cheaper but are also capable of taking better photographs from more angles.

The Online Battleground to Sell More Properties

Real Estate Agents now have the ability to take stunning aerial photographs and high definition videos that are extremely detailed. Studies have shown that properties that feature videos in their listings tend to receive more attention than those with standard photographs.

Studies have also shown that 90% of all potential homebuyers first search for properties online before contacting a real estate agent. An overwhelming majority of online real estate listings feature still photos, but very few are taking advantage of videos. While well-taken photos can display a property’s beauty, it can’t be compared to the sheer beauty and elegance that a video introduces to the listing.

There has been a huge increase in real estate agents using videos on their listings. Videos are more captivating and can really highlight a property in ways that photos simply cannot. In the real estate industry, capturing the attention of a buyer is the number one priority and real estate drone videos do this perfectly.

Videos highlight a property’s features much better than still photos. In addition, drone videos also give the potential buyer a chance to view the surrounding areas and take stock of who their neighbors would be if they purchase the property.  Aerial photos can show off local amenities surrounding the property such as schools, parks, local transportation and much more giving you a great overview of the neighborhood.

The Advantages of Drones are Endless

Drone videos are also engaging and can highlight all the stand-out features of the property. Drones are able to show off swimming pools, backyards, gardens, decks and other important features of the property that ground photos simply cannot capture.

While the benefits are many, some real estate agencies are not using Drone Videos simply because they don’t know where to begin.  Filming a drone video is not as easy as purchasing a drone and taking to the air. There are many things to take into consideration before your first flight.

Before you fly a drone, you must be licensed by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to fly commercially. It’s also important to have insurance just in case something goes wrong.  But being insured and licensed it still just the beginning. Learning to fly a drone while capturing all of the right angles can be a time-consuming process to master.

Once a property is filmed, there is still more work that needs to be done. The videos and photos need to edited, color corrected. This alone takes skilled editors to do. Then once the editing is done, you need to put the video and photos onto a webpage that can be easily shared online and on MLS websites.
