Aerial photography and videos can sell a lifestyle that standard pictures can’t.
Cliche descriptions of homes with “stunning views” and “a stone’s throw away” to parkland no longer suffice in a competitive market where iProperty NT agents are using drones to take their marketing to new heights.
Technology is changing every aspect of our life so it’s little wonder it’s also changing the way we look at real estate.
Drones, or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), are increasingly being used to provide a better overview not just of the property, but also of the surrounding area.
iProperty NT’s owner Peter Kafkas said drone footage provided prospective buyers a better idea of a property before the inspection, and were 75 per cent cheaper than helicopters that cost about $1500 to hire for an hour.
Peter Kafkas presents amazing drone footage of this custom design property which is ideal for those seeking a no fuss move to the country lifestyle surrounded by pure serenity.
Will it work for your property?
Selling a house can be a stressful process at the best of times, so add in an extra layer of technology and there’s a chance you could tip over the edge.
Hamlet says vendors should weigh up whether drone photography will help profile their particular property.
“Drone photography is great for many property shapes and sizes, and we have also produced aerials for apartment towers, town houses, and farms.
“When considering aerial photography you need to keep in mind any visual obstructions from trees or power-lines that could prevent clear visuals.”
Tips for engaging a drone video to sell your home
- Ensure the drone operator is properly licensed by the relevant authorities
- Ask to see examples of their work to ensure you’re happy with the quality
- Inform your neighbours you’ll be filming and work through any issues they may have prior to starting
- Agree on what aspects of the property/local area you want to focus on before you start
