Technology is changing the way real estate agents sell their listings; from putting the very first digital pin on a map to detail the exact location of a home, to offering video tours online, technology is continuously advancing and it’s important that real estate agents are keeping up with the times to bring the very best to their clients.
Today, drone technology is quickly becoming a go-to tool for real estate agents to market their listings, but often the cost is so expensive that entire marketing budgets can be easily blown with just one video.
Realty Times is proud to share that we have partnered with DroneView to offer our real estate agents the very best in drone technology to beautifully market their listings in a cost-effective way that will bring something fresh and exciting to clients while seducing potential buyers, allowing agents to separate themselves from the rest.
While most real estate drone videos focus on featuring the home itself, DroneView sets listings apart by featuring the neighborhood of a home, allowing potential buyers to explore the community of a listing through a crisp and clean high-definition, 360 degree graphic shot 100ft above the home.
An FAA approved drone pilot shoots each DroneView with 100% covered liability. Best of all, the realtor nor the homeowners need be present; because the focus of the DroneView is the listing’s community and surrounding neighborhood, the pilot can get the shots they need without having to enter the home.
Agents already love this innovative way to feature their listings and are finding that DroneView gives them a competitive edge in the market. “Separating myself from the ‘field’ of agents going after the same listings has become increasingly difficult. It has become very competitive and if you are an agent that is not keeping up with technology, you might as well quit the business,” says REALTOR® Geri DeVille of RE/MAX Top Producers in Brea, California.
“Having a drone video image is a new way of capturing the neighborhood so potential buyers can get a better idea of the type of neighbors they might have. Sellers love showing off what they have to offer and a drone view is another way to do that.”
After delighting a previous client with a past DroneView listing, Geri was so pleased with the product that she has already purchased another for her latest listing. “I love the drone views…When I told my most recent client that I would be ordering a DroneView for their home, they said, ‘Oh really? Wow! That is pretty cool!’ I think it’s important to make every client feel special and that you would do everything you could to put their home in the best light and separate them from the field of listings.”
Continuing on the importance of showing dedication to clients, Geri adds, “Clients want to see how their home is going to get marketed and know that they will be at the top billing in as many ways as possible. They want as much exposure as possible, and a DroneView is a bonus, especially when they are not expecting it…as drones become more and more popular I visualize this as just another part of doing business and as an expectation.”
Exclusive to Realty Times, each DroneView listing will be featured directly on the RealtyTimes.com website through a unique webpage for the lifetime of the listing. Each webpage will include the HD 360 degree DroneView graphic as well as additional HD exterior shots of the home, a map to detail the listing location, agent info, and a link to the listing page. Only DroneView listings will be featured on Realty Times, allowing for optimal reach and link clicks back to your listing.
One DroneView listing is included under the newly revitalized Agent Publicity Package, however DroneView listings can also be purchased separately. DroneView upgrades are also available for those who would like an even more in-depth drone experience for their listing. A great agent-to-agent gift idea, DroneView gift cards are available!
