Drones (UAV's) are being used more frequently in assisting estate agents to capture aerial photographs and video for the purpose of marketing hi-end properties. Aerial images of a property help to give prospective buyers a true sense of its location and the surrounding area. Photo's from the front and rear of a property as well as from directly above shows property size, position to its surroundings and helps with potential planning. Aerial photography and video compliments the images taken internally to sell properties.
With the advent of UAV's (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, or Drones as they are sometime known as), has meant the cost of aerial photography has reduced significantly and allowed marketiers to benefit from displaying hi quality video and photographs.
Check for Certification
If you are considering using a friend or maybe a business you've found online to take the aerial photos of a property you MUST ensure they have their PfCO certificate. If you, as an Estate Agent, use images to sell a house that were taken by a photographer without the CAA's PfCO
you are breaking the law. PLEASE
only use a qualified and fully insured aerial imagery services.
