You Are Cleared for Landing

Is it just me or has half the agent population gone nuts with drone photos?

I just looked at a listing that had all the fabulous features anyone could want, yet nine of the forty photos were aerials. It had this huge well equipped shop for people who want a shop, yet it had two inside shots.

Are we expecting people to spend a lot of time flying around over there home ratther than coming down to enjoy it?

Personally, I don't spend a lot of time on drone shots. I'm not fascinated with drones, and have no interest in learning how to fly one myself. Drones are expensive to buy and repair when you have a pilot error. Done correctly, you have to have an expensive drone with a more expensive camera. Some listings don't need, and may even be tarnished by aerial photos.

Fortunately, when I see a need for aerials, I have a neighbor who loves drones as a hobby. He has all the latest equipment. He does my drone shots, and I do favors for him.

So come back to earth Space Cowboy! There's a lot of real estate to sell down here!

Drone shots are like anything else, they need to be well done and relevent.  In Sedona, the better an angle you can shoot with red rocks in the photo the more interest it brings. Rather than a bunch of aerial shots, I may have a video that is about a minute long to showcase the red rocks. But it is critical to only take shots that showcase the home or property.

Ron,

When the craze started, many picture windows were broken, and many photos showed the rusted cars in the neighbor's yard.  They are great for large luxury properties, ranches, vineyards, etc.  I am glad that one has to be licensed here to fly them, and our clients use a licensed photographer for those.  A
