How Aerial Real Estate Photography Works

With all of the new drone services out there, one of the most common drone businesses are in real estate photography. If you are thinking about selling your house, you should definitely consider contacting a business that specialises in this. Let’s talk about everything you need to know about it.

Why Use Aerial Real Estate Photography?

As the name implies, it is capturing incredible views of your property that once was way too expensive before drones. As they are incredibly low cost, able to get shots from almost anywhere, and able to hover with ease, drones are perfect for this business.

Before drones, marketing your real estate would probably include taking the best possible pictures of the exterior and interior with a professional photographer. The only problem with this is that all of the shots are on level ground. You really can’t get a great perspective of how big or what the property looks like until you have seen an aerial shot. That’s where this drone services come in, as it can provide breathtaking views of your property that was once unimaginable.


Video Fly-Bys

Photos are great, but video fly-bys are a feature more real estate owners are using. Professionally done, these videos look impressive and sleek. Within a quick couple of minutes, these videos can provide multiple views and capture the entire property.

The final product of the video will be carefully edited and look stunning. It will make your property pop and make it better than even you imagined. Filming both close-up and high up shots, as well as adding music and a little bit of an artistic flare to it do this perfectly.

Virtual Tours

Most of this article has been spent talking about all of the great exterior shots that these services can provide. But what about the interior?

Virtual tours through your home are great ways to show off what’s inside. It can showcase your entire house within a couple of minutes, and it gives a potential buyer a first person point of view in a video that simply can’t be captured by just still pictures.


Up to this point, I’ve only talked about drones being used to capture video, but still-shots are usually a little cheaper and just as high of quality. You’ll also want some photos included in your real estate posting as that is the customary thing to do.

Hiring an aerial photography company will truly be your one-stop-shop for all of your real estate photography needs. It usually won’t take more than a couple hours, and within no time you will have one of the best displays of your property up on the market.
