Drone technology is a relatively new tool in the real estate industry. It's so new, in fact, that many homeowners and their agents are unaware of how drones can help them sell their home. If you're a homeowner who would like to sell your house quickly and for the most money, working with a drone company can help. Here's what you need to know.
What Is Drone Technology?
A drone is an unmanned flying vehicle. Drones are controlled by remote signal sent from a device that is managed by an experienced operator. Drones look like miniature helicopters. Today, drones can be owned by drone hobbyists and also businesses.
Why Would a Home Seller Need Drone Services?
Drones have a variety of uses in modern real estate. To begin with, drones can be used to take photographs of homes from high above and from unusual angles. This is especially useful on properties that are large and sprawling, and in homes that have an impressive view. Drones capture images of the landscape that no other photographer can capture.
Drones are also useful because they can create unique and attractive video recordings. By simply strapping a video recorder onto a drone, the drone operator can take a video of a home's entire interior. Playing the video for potential buyers gives the buyer a sense of the home's layout.
How Can You Get Started?
Homeowners who want to sell their home quickly and who want to attract a variety of buyers can do so by first contacting their real estate professional. A good real estate professional will have connections in the community, and will know about businesses like professional photographers and drone operators.
When trying to decide which drone operator to hire, the homeowner should look at:
- Portfolio. Many drone operators will have examples of previous work that can help home sellers ensure they're hiring a capable professional.
- Rates. Anyone who charges way above or way below the rest of the competition may not be a good business to hire.
- References. When in doubt, home sellers can contact the drone operator's references to see if they have happy clients.
