YouTube Thursday, real estate drone videos.
This blog post considers taking to the skies over the real estate property listings. Things to consider that you would have no way of knowing if you stay on the ground in your online real estate presentations.
Real estate drone videos.
Points to ponder. Weather impacts whether you are lift off flying today or not. Time of day, the settings on your drone "eye in the sky" get adjusted. If too much wind, if there is rain or snow in the forecast, the drone launch take off may have to wait for skies to clear.
Like all your real estate videos, the show and tell collecting the images and video loops on the ground or in the sky.
Buckle up. Time is always a valuable consideration for the finished project of all your real estate video productions.
Unless you have weeks to produce a dripping with luxury high end real estate video and a budget with no ceiling, keep it simple.
You are producing, editing, uploading lots of them. Not just doing video for your most expensive listings.
Your run and gun, meat and potato real estate videos should do three things consistently.
1) Replace the in person need for the buyer to put everything on hold, to have to wait for a physical tour of the community and the real estate listing.
2) To give the video user a good sense of where the property listing is located and the community flavor surrounding it. Who in the audience would enjoy this location? Is it obvious after the video tour, the rewind, re-watch a couple times?
3) Pull the buyer in from curb and thru the front door for the room by room through the property listing virtual tour. Showing everything that would happen in the physical real estate tour side to side, top to bottom.
Real estate drone videos and still images are powerful and cut to the chase transporting the buyer to the property instantly.
Within a few seconds, a sense of how big the land area is surrounding the home, land, whatever real estate listing for sale happens.
Your drone video loops and images all help to instantly transfer your buyer to the location.
Watching, listening on whatever device whether a phone, lap top, desk top or television to the real estate video location. Your viewers suddenly can one after another tour property listing that plug into the GPS coordinates.
Your real estate video should be kept simple, predictable.
You can weave in the aerials, maps, plats, the slow pan on the approach and ending pull away that signals the shows over folks. But that you are here for questions. And don't forget to go down below in the SHOW MORE region for the price, contact information, property details on this and every single real estate video production.

Battery life also impacts your real estate drone video production.
Even if the weather is perfect, the time of day just right for the look and feel you are after. If you don't have a mental flight plan before drone lift off, you eat up valuable air time.
I'm on my third drone and flight times are improving.
But 22 minutes ties it up and even less when colder temperatures diminish your real estate video flight time.
You also don't fly until the battery is exhausted on a wing and prayer, seat of your pants approach to drone flight.
Or hoping your real estate drone falls out of the sky in some place soft, easy to find without the aid of the transponder signal you see on movies. There's no black box on your real estate drone to learn what went wrong in flight.
You are warned at 30% battery that it is high time to thinking about heading back to your launch GPS coordinates.
Trees, wires, the flight path for your real estate video drone takes time to maneuver no matter how skilled you are with the two navigational sticks.
Easy does it with your real estate drone aerials.
Just because you have a drone, don't give your viewer vertigo. With the round and round that never ends. There is nothing worse than a video that starts out with real estate drone video aerial shots that excite the buyer. But the inside video tour never happens. That's like a meal where portions are missing. Videos, real full motion videos are open house on demand property tours.
The video after the opening and ending drone shots has to have the "beef" in the middle filling.
There is a clock ticking out in the audience too. Give them the grand tour of the property listing right now which should be easy right?
Not so hard.
Because you the agent or broker do real estate showings all the time right?
Real estate drone videos, plan your flight before take off and the return touch down landing.
Consider the weather and how many trips back to the property listing to collect video inside, outside, over head you really want to take. Check the drone memory card to make sure you have room for the video and image capture.
Our early real estate drones carried a payload.
A go pro camera and trial and error adjustments to absorb the vibration and without a gimbal you could control from the drone flight controller.
Also missing the onboard video screen to POV see what you were capturing until you downloaded al the loops into video production software. That's your YouTube Thursday video blog post installment for today. Real estate drone videography has come a long ways and is steadily improving.
