Drones & Real Estate: A Beginner’s Guide

For both commercial and residential real estate agents, proper visual marketing can be the difference between a closed listing and a lost opportunity. Leveraging drone photography enhances the listing’s overall presentation and effectively shows a property in real context: a sweeping aerial of a property’s surrounding neighborhood just might be the trigger a passive buyer needs to become more serious about your listing.

Drone-captured photography is making it easier than ever to sell listings – but admittedly, the space can seem confusing for drone novices. If you’re working in real estate and aren’t sure where to start with drone technology, you’re not alone! The good news? You don’t have to be a tech expert to reap the benefits of aerial imagery for your business.

One thought on “Drones & Real Estate: A Beginner’s Guide

  1. I have 4 questions:

    (1) If I go to take a pano of a property based on what’s on the DroneBase app, do i need to attain a “property release” notification from the property owner prior to filming?

    (2) Once I upload my footage how am I notified whether or not the client actually purchased it?

    (3). Once I reserve a property to conduct a pano what is the timeframe I have to do it in and how am I assured that someone else doesn’t come behind me to shoot the same property in order to steal thee job?

    (4) how to upload my bank info for direct deposit purposes? Under my profile, in the Payment Profile, I don’t see an option – only a tab that says “Manage you Quil account here”, but I don’t believe I have one and clicking on the tab only allows you to login not set up an account?
