If you are considering buying/using a drone for real estate purposes. I would giving this article a read to better inform yourself on some of the FAA regulations.

I used a drone to market a waterfront listing I had a few months ago and the results were fantastic! The reason primarily is because thanks to the drone I was able to take overhead pictures that showed where the home was situated along the boat canal. Lastly, it's a great way to stand out particularly on a luxury market where there's more competition.

I want to make sure you get the idea. The drone is but a supplement that can be a great way to stand out. You won't need it for every listing as it may not be necessary and it certainly won't be the deciding factor on a sale. You still will need traditional marketing and photography.

The juice is worth the squeeze if your listing can benefit from it.

I'm using a drone and it has been good so far. It has created a few leads. I showed a home to a couple today who said they found me from a recent video.

Personally I have not had a home that I think warranted the drone photography. My feeling is that if you list a rural property where you can show acreage and mountains and slopes or if you have a home situated on a beautiful hillside that would benefit from photos facing into the yard for example from the view side this could be invaluable. But just to show the home between the close neighbors for example could even be a negative showing it's close proximity and lack of privacy from other neighbors not otherwise obvious.

Just my take on the subject.
