Using A Drone To Strike Tallahassee Homes With Acreage

The use of drones by the US government has been causing controversy for many years, but did you know that we are now using drones to enhance the marketing of our Tallahassee homes with acreage?

We use aerial photography on larger tracts of land to give prospective buyers the "lay of the land" so that they can tour the property from the comfort of their homes.

Today, we'll take a look at a home that will be hitting the market soon in Tallahassee, and it is perfect for the use of the great new real estate technology.

A Simple Real Estate Video (Is Not So Simple)

The following video only lasts a few minutes, but it was tens of hours in the making. Our "Tallahassee Home With Acreage) video was compiled with help from multiple sources:

  1. Aerial video (the drone) was provided by ExperienceAbove, a Florida aerial photography company that flies the drone and edits the still images and video to get us the material we need to market a home.
  2. The interior tour of the home was created from over 250 images taken by our in house marketing team (special thanks to Tom Hutchinson who worked late hours on this) and then stitched together with an application from VisualTour.
  3. Finally, the amazing song "Tallahassee" was written and performed by Colleen Nixon. 

Drones In Real Estate

Drones In Real Estate - Tallahassee homes with acreageI guess the million dollar question is will we see more use of drones in real estate? Can the additional cost incurred in the marketing of a home for sale be justified with "more sales" or by achieving a higher success rate when selling high end homes in Tallahassee?

We will be testing this new real estate technology on some of our listings over the few months in order to establish its ability to draw more views, more visitors, and hopefully an increased demand for the properties that we are marketing.

Commercial use of a drone is illegal in the US according to the FAA.

Have they change ruling on this?

I have no idea Jim (in other words ... probably not) but this is something popping up everywhere

If the H/O gives consent then you can fly over their home and make aerial photos. I've been flying drone since 2001 and we had to have AMA Liability Insurance incase of a crash or injury to property or an individual. $1,000,000

Definitely not illegal to fly drones for commercial purposes, just have to have proper licensing and registration with FAA... Been doing it for a little while and operating within the law
