Why It Pays to Invest in Drone Photography

Is your property ready for its close-up? Great! But, before you schedule your professional photo shoot, consider taking your listing to the next level by adding an aerial photo option. A set of well lit interiors and street view shots are absolutely necessary for putting your home on the market. However, aerial photography can take your listing from mediocre to marvelous. Read on to learn more about the advantages of opting for drone photography.

In the old days, getting a stunning aerial shot of your property required a helicopter, plus a photographer that wasn’t afraid of heights! These barriers prevented aerial photography from being a viable selling tool for most residential properties. Now, thanks to the fast-moving world of technology, it’s easier (and more affordable) than ever to get quality shots of your property from the air with unmanned drones. So, why should you spring for drone photography?

The most obvious reason is the visual advantage that aerial photography can provide. Roughly 90% of homebuyers begin their searches online. In a world of social media and buy-now-get-now commerce, you need to catch the eye of potential buyers fast. Drone photography allows you to stand out from the competition by departing from or adding to standard street view shots. And while drone photography delivers eye-catching shots, it also allows for extended visibility to parts of your property that may remain hidden with more traditional photography. For instance, if you’ve just had a new roof installed, you can show it off with a few aerial shots. This provides not only visual diversity, but also allows potential buyers to feel like they are getting a more complete and honest view of their future home.

When selling real estate, it’s crucial to remember that age-old adage: location, location, location. Drone photography also allows you to show off your listing’s surroundings. Is your property within walking distance of city parks, retail centers, or other local conveniences? What better way to highlight these attractions than with an aerial view. And aerial shots are perfect for highlighting your property’s green space and parking availability. With drone photography, you can truly give your buyers the big picture.

If you really want to wow potential buyers, also consider an aerial teaser video. Home buyers will be able to see your property from multiple angles, and see it come to life! An aerial video can also help your listing go viral, as there’s nothing social media loves more than compelling video content.
