“It just shows the landscaping and how the house is situated on the lot. It gives a totally different perspective,” says Carol Sawdey. “Right now, drones are being used primarily for high-end properties, where acres of land and outdoor amenities such as tennis and basketball courts or a pool can be accentuated to a potential buyer.”
Expect the use of drones in the Real Estate industry to increase as the technology gets better and more cost-effective and more agents get on the bandwagon. We have the ability to use drone footage in our listing photos and videos right now. Count on Carol’s team to always be on the forefront of technology in the industry.
