Photos and videos are some of the most important pieces of a real estate listing. In fact, 95% of home buyers say that photos are the most important factor when shopping for homes.
There are more ways for buyers to share and experience a house through photos and video than ever before. Sellers also have more options when putting their house on the market, and one of the hottest trends for real estate marketers is using drone photography to properly show off listings.
That’s right – drone photography. Real estate photographers love drone photography, and it might just be the key to selling your home for a higher price!
Three Reasons Why Drone Photography Is Effective
Drones truly show off a home’s acreage.
Once the drone is outside, it can show buyers even more… from an even higher angle. There are very few opportunities for sellers to take buyers over every square inch of their property, but a drone can fly up to 400 feet in the United States.
Every acre of your land and the surrounding neighborhood can be shown off from that height! (Don’t believe us? Just watch this gorgeous video below of a listing in Cooper Landing!)
If you have a large amount of land, drone photography is the best way to show potential buyers the true value of your property. Sellers near Eagle River or more secluded areas of Anchorage should seriously consider showing off their house with drone photography.
Drones allow walkthroughs to reach new heights.
Video walkthroughs are quickly becoming one of the hottest ways for realtors to show off their homes. A full walkthrough helps buyers put together the pieces that pictures provide and truly put themselves in their potential home.
Drones are wonderful for walkthroughs because they can record them at eye level… or from the perspective of the ceiling fan! This is something that can make the space feel bigger and even cause it to look more interesting.
Drones also record this walkthrough smoothly. In one shot, photographers can record a full walkthrough that includes every room of the house.
The rooms of your house, no matter what shape or size they are, have a better chance of being shown off with drone photography.
There are more drones on the market than ever.
Did you know the oldest aerial photograph is from 1860? But it wasn’t until the early 2000s that people started using drones to take photos in their backyard. Nowadays, we see drones at every tourist attraction and frequently at local events.
With more models on the market, the quality of photography is only getting better and better, and there are first-rate models available at reasonable price points.
As a result, drone photography has become a more worthwhile investment for real estate marketing.
