To the right is a listing video I found on the local MLS for a Tidewater condo on the Columbia River. The entire intro was done with a drone camera and it definitely adds some visual drama to the listing.
I have always been an advocate of good clear a well composed images of homes in real estate. The seller is paying a handsome fee and they deserve to have their home presented in the best possible light.
I have a photography background having spent the entirety of the 1980s and half the 1990s as a professional in the photography industry. So I need not hire out to make real estate images that have a professional touch. I have always been a bit of an equipment junkie so I still own great quality camera gear. But short of renting a 30 foot lift, I can't get these above the neighborhood viewpoints that seem to be permeating the industry.Well, I couldn't before now. I decided to add a camera drone to my "arsenal" of marketing. Of course I will need a little practice flying the thing but I took my first simple images in my own neighborhood for practice.
It's good to keep everything in perspective. That said, a little marketing edge never hurt, methinks ;)
