This winter, we expanded our creative outlets and bought a drone for aerial shots. We quickly realized in order to legally utilize the drone for commercial use in real estate, we need to obtain our remote drone pilot license thru the FAA. That’s when one of our dedicated agents decided they would take the plunge. Tami spent the downtime during our winter arctic blast to study for her pilot license. She went thru the rigorous remote pilot program with the Federal Aviation Administration, took the test, and passed with flying colors! We now utilize the drone for aerial photos and video of our residential, land, and commercial listings. It provides an overall view of the surrounding neighborhood and the beautiful countryside that we have throughout Vermont.
Our drone is the Wingsland Scarlet Minivet M2 Model. We have a large 5″ screen so we can see a wide-scale view of the drone’s imagery as we’re flying. HD 1080p video recording allows for high-quality video, so we can have the best walk-thru picture quality in order to capture the vibrancy of the green mountain landscape.
It’s a well-known fact that the more quality images a real estate team can provide, the better the likelihood of success. Over 92% of home buyers are now shopping online prior to calling or following up with a real estate agency. Because of this, it’s important to have your property listed on a professional website with a variety of bright images followed by a detailed description highlighting the magnificence of the property. Drone images are impressive! Drone pics are new to the real estate industry and shoppers are taking note and making quicker moves when they see the full spectrum that a birds-eye view has to offer. The more quality images you have, the higher your odds of getting those buyer’s thru the door and to the closing table!
