Legal drone photos available now: let’s show buyers a bird’s-eye view of YOUR home or cabin

One of the many advantages of listing your lake home or cabin with me is that I provide ALL my sellers with professional, magazine-quality real estate photography that helps their property stand out from the crowd. The difference isn’t just artsy or technical, and it’s a difference that really matters.

And starting now… I’m also providing aerial photos and video. Last winter my husband Al passed his Part 107 test, and he’s now an FAA-certified Remote Pilot who can legally fly small Unmanned Aerial Systems (UASs) for commercial purposes.

That’s why the title of this post began with the words “LEGAL drone photos.” As of August 29, 2016, a Realtor or photographer must possess a Remote Pilot Certificate before they can legally use a drone to capture aerial photos or video that will be used to market your home. It doesn’t matter if no money changes hands; the FAA defines real estate photography as a “commercial purpose,” and even uses it as a key example of the difference between commercial and recreational flight. Liability for unauthorized operations can fall on both the pilot and the person who hires the pilot.

Although aerial photos and video still have novelty value, it’s no longer enough to send up a drone and press a button. This isn’t a job for your neighbor’s teenager who loves drones, phones, and video games. It’s a job for a skilled real estate photographer who occasionally uses a camera that happens to be mounted on a flying tripod. Just as with terrestrial photography, there’s more to this than just buying a camera and clicking a button.

Now, it is possible that your property may not benefit from drone photos. If it’s closely surrounded by dense conifers, for example, then the only available angle might show nothing but shingles. And if the houses on either side are a little too close, we may not want to emphasize that visually. But for many homes and cabins, a drone’s-eye view can add a tremendous amount of extra drama and excitement.

That’s why we’re willing to fly the extra mile for our clients, and that’s why I’m so excited about this new capability. For more examples of drone shots (and also of other great photography that’s helping my sellers’ listings get noticed and get sold), please follow the link to my blog and website.

And finally, if you’re thinking of selling, please give me a call or drop me an email. I’ll be happy to provide a free, localized and fact-based comparative pricing analysis. Or, if you know anyone else who might be interested in buying or selling, please give me a call at 218-590-6634.

NW WI Lake Cabin for Sale at the Edge of Lake Nebagamon (Lake Nebagamon, WI)

Somehow, I have a feeling no one will complain about the small front yard at this cabin on Lake Nebagamon. It has a huge back yard, and as for its front yard…

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

In recent years, this grandfathered-in cabin has been added on to, renovated, and totally updated. Originally, however, it was built before the days of modern shoreline setback rules. Back then, it was considered perfectly OK to build you cabin or lake home with its front wall less than a canoe-length from the water’s edge.

This cabin’s original owners liked the idea of being close to the water, and you will, too. Your front yard will be perfect for parties, or for just relaxing by the lake. And when the sun sets, the final embers are fading in your campfire, and it’s finally time to turn in, you can fall asleep to the sound of loons, waves, and the wind in the pines. No worries. Tomorrow is another day at the cabin. If you want, go ahead and sleep in.

But if this looks like the cabin for you, then don’t delay. To learn more, give me a call now at 218-590-6634. Or, you can reach me at jeanhedren@edinarealty.com.

Don’t settle for bad drone snaps. Demand great aerial photos.

Log home on Kimball Lake

Great photos matter. The difference isn’t just artsy or technical, and it’s a difference that really matters. Here’s why:

Nearly all buyers begin their search online. In today’s market, they have lots of options. Their biggest challenge: deciding on a short list of homes they feel are worth seeing in person. Great photos increase the odds that your home will make the cut. In the old days, back when buyers drove around looking for real estate signs, everyone talked about “curb appeal.” Online, great photos are the modern equivalent. Other than price, it’s the #1 thing we can do to help your home get noticed.

And starting now… We’re also providing aerial photos and video. Last winter my husband Al passed his Part 107 test, and he’s now an FAA-certified Remote Pilot who can legally fly small Unmanned Aerial Systems (UASs) for commercial purposes.
