For high value homes, I've seen it done. For the more upscale properties they will get a drone to do aerial video/pictures for their advertising. It's a novelty, obviously wouldn't apply to all properties, but it's worth looking into for the right client.

I've heard of people using drones to do aerial photos, or taking video by going around the house in circles and stuff. Besides using a drone with a good camera on it, I also saw a drone that you can attach your smartphone into and take pictures/video that way.

I've only seen it done on high value properties though, or commercial properties. Ones that would really bring a good commission and high end customers.

This is a fairly timely topic in my industry - home inspection.

A number of my colleagues jumped right into using them with no regard to legal implications. The FAA quickly decided it would involve itself in all commercial use of drones in the USA. However, it appeared to be dragging its feet in determining how it would address the issue.

Subsequently, a court order nullified the FAA's interest in the matter since it had not issued any guidance. In response, the FAA quickly issued guidelines in obtaining a waiver to FAA regulations (a section 333 waiver).

Now, effective August 29 of this year, the FAA has a certification process for commercial drone use. Known as their Part 107, Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Rule, it defines the manner by which operators may use drones for commercial use.

See: http://www.faa.gov/uas/

I do not currently own or operate a drone, but expect to do so soon enough. A good number of home inspectors are already pursuing certification.

I would advise any realtor to use a local, certified drone operator to perform photographic services as needed. Local home inspectors might be a good place to look for one.

Realtors who are interested in pursuing certification for themselves might enjoy offering these services to other members of their local REA.

$100 is too cheap, the quality cant be that high for a price like that. We offer it for high ticket homes over $1.5m and above outside of New York but not for $100.

Realtors who run their own drones should check on the insurance they should have to protect themselves.

Its not about just buying a drone, passing the test and hey presto Im a pilot. Having insurance to fly one over a multi million dollar home is something to be very wise about,

If the realtor isnt covered they and their company is liable, and guess what commercial insurance isnt cheap.

I think the price point of the service is definitely a regional issue. Too little in one area would be too much in another.

I expect the more valid point would be the kind of homes realtors would use the service for. Luxury homes definitely would be included. Large lots or acreage would be another good market to include. Of course, the more time you would spend videotaping, the more you would charge.

I've seen footage from some of the newer drones available, and they are definitely worthwhile from a marketing standpoint.

That's a very good point, Dan. Oddly enough, I witnessed a drone failure this weekend which should not have been able to happen - according to the manufacturer.

One of the more popular drones available is programmed to keep a distance of several feet from nearby objects. I saw this very model at a cross country (running) meet where it was being used to record the finish line. The pilot somehow ran it into a pine tree. It took a nasty tumble, but fortunately did not fall on anyone nearby.

Its always important to be very familiar with all tools and equipment, and to gain that familiarity well before one uses them on the job. I am sure we will hear plenty of interesting anecdotes the more these contraptions become popular.

We are a Real Estate Photography company and using drones is only any good to show off the grounds rather than a house.

Just a word of warning about the liability and useage of drones; we were on a shoot with another company that did the drone footage, half way through or at some point during the job. The drone took a very weird hard 90 degree right turn and flew into the balcony of the house. Smashing the units blades etc. Had someone been standing there it would have been a horrific damage to the person and the drone pilots reputation - I think drones have a few years to go before they are more reliable - just my 2 cents worth.

As I hear about various drone mishaps, I sometimes wish I could know which models were observed failing. I know that the DJI Phantom series is very popular, and see them often in use. In fact, the incident I shared above involved a drone which appeared to be a Phantom. I have no idea which model, however.

I have reviewed FAA's flight rules for certified UAS pilots. I think the requirement of always have a controlled drone in sight of the pilot will be one of the hardest for home inspectors like myself to follow without fail.

Situations where a drone is safer/better than a ladder can require close-up shots which would move the drone beyond line-of-sight. This is exactly when something would tend to go wrong, of course.

I expect a DJI company representative would ask if it was their series 3 or 4, then proceed to ask if it was standard, advanced, or professional models. They have so many to choose from, it would be difficult to know for certain unless the owner was making the inquiry directly.

I expect that DJI would promote the "professional" model as the only solution for commercial operators. It is significantly more expensive, but probably has more features designed to better serve professional users.
