Drones in Darwin Real Estate?
“We would use it to really showcase a property’s position and size,” having a video that can show the depth and position is a better selling point and attracts buyers to the property.
“We have had a lot of feedback from down south and international buyers that they can get a better sense of a property without having to fly in to see it.”
Drones were often used as a replacement for cherry pickers and helicopters for aerial shots and there were strict guidelines for their use.
“Should we adopt this technology our agency is mindful of nearby residents and the drones’ use was limited to the property we were selling.”
Drones have the potential to pose a serious threat to privacy, according to a report by a federal parliamentary committee.
The report, Eyes In The Sky, pointed out that Australia’s privacy laws were often outdated by emerging technology.
“Existing laws may not be sufficient to cope with the specific privacy issues widespread RPA (remotely piloted aircraft) use might raise,” it said.
The report pointed out that drones can intrude on someone’s private activities either on purpose or when carrying out other activities such as aerial photography.
It also stated that the capacity of drones to enter private property and record both images and sounds can create “significant opportunities for privacy breaches”.
The committee inquiry also covered issues such as air safety, economic benefits and potential uses by emergency services.
