I've been watching my neighbor fly his drone. It looks like fun. At night it's lighted up and looks like a small alien spacecraft. I would love to get one and buzz my broker's home with it.

No, Silvia Dukes PA, Broker Associate, CRS, CIPS, SRES, that's another thing I will always hire out!  I'd rather hire someone than spend the time perfecting its use!  If it's anything like a camera, I'll never perfect using one! LOL

I have a cheep one that I used once, but the new ones are more sofisticated and easier to fly, so I am considering it, after I pay $150. and take a written test to get a license and pay more money to register the drone.Then there is the insurance we would need for a business to fly them.  It all takes some thought, time, money and more money.

Our clients get them done professionally.  They are great for large properties, and grand estates.  When it comes to smaller properties you run the risk of the house next door's yard looking like hell.  A
