I was reading my hometown newspaper tonight and I noticed a full back page ad for Halstead Properties showcasing its real estate listings, but something else as well. I took a double take when I noticed the phrase “Drone Helicopter Imagery” and the link Halstead.com/drone. Drones? Is this war or real estate?
In that moment, my world was turned upside down.
After a childhood and adult hood using remote control (R/C) boats and cars (sometimes actually with my kids), here was someone who made this technology into a business. My kids and I even tried Estes model rockets with the built in camera (that never worked).
This form of photography service would provide an additional perspective on the condition of the property and its placement on the site. Going forward as this service grows in popularity, the use of aerial photography will likely be expanded beyond large estate properties for more typical ones.
