The day is not that far away when you’ll hear a tippity tap at the front door and open it to find your friendly neighborhood pizza drone just waiting for you to collect your order (pineapple optional…). After all, it’s already happening in Australia.
As it turns out, drones are pretty handy things to have around. They also have plenty of applications in the real estate industry. For example, did you know that home inspectors are starting to use them more for things like roof inspections? It’s a heck of a lot safer for everyone, plus they make filming and saving a record of the roof’s condition effortless.
In the same way that inspectors are using drones to look at those hard to reach places, real estate agents are also taking advantage of the tech.
Don’t panic, but drone adoption and utilization is taking off as the tech becomes more cost effective. In fact, a variety of services have appeared to help real estate agents and others use drones to improve the overall story they’re trying to tell about a property. Drones are handy, even when they’re not delivering pizza.
Drones outfitted to take photos or video of homes are an invaluable tool for real estate agents and buyers alike. Here are a few reasons why:
Drones have already been used extensively in the luxury home market, but their use certainly isn’t limited to that audience. Everybody likes a good fly-by, especially if there’s something really neat to see. For example, a house in a historic area may show particularly well in a drone video.
Ultimately, drones are about adding more ways for buyers to get a good picture of the house in question. After all, no one has a lot of free time these days, but you can easily watch a drone video online, examine photos of a home you’re really interested in and then decide if it makes the short list over your lunch break without leaving the office.
Whether you need a drone video to really showcase your listing photos or you just want to make sure that your real estate agent doesn’t miss an opportunity to give potential buyers a better view of the place, there’s someone within the HomeKeepr community that can help. You can even get recommendations for home inspectors that are using this technology! Just log in and ask your network for referrals to the best people in the drone business!
