3D Architectural Rendering Best Shots of the Property

homesfallcoverTraditionally, real estate agents who are looking to sell a house will do a number of things to get it ready for buyers to view. The agent may look into staging the home to accentuate all of its best assets. The agent may also list the property on websites so that buyers on the go can get access to the information. What every real estate agent still does is take great pictures of the interior and exterior to show prospective buyers before they make a decision about scheduling a showing. In today’s market, even the way the pictures are taken is changing.

Agents in some markets are now turning to drone photography to get the best shots of the property. This process puts a camera onto a small remote controlled helicopter or other device to get shots of the roof, the front yard and the back yard. However, this is such a new trend that many states do not have laws allowing this type of commercial drone photography. Six states in the U.S. have actually banned the use of drones for commercial and private use, though the practice is being reviewed. While it is still not standard practice, drones may be a vital asset to real estate agents in the future.

Drone photography in real estate does not stop at taking a few aerial shots of a property. This type of photography can also be utilized in 3D architectural rendering by getting multiple shots of different angles of any architectural feature that may be included in a plan to build a new house. Drone photography in real time can also provide potential buyers with the option to take a virtual tour if they are unable to get to the location or if they are unable to walk the grounds due to a disability.

Because it is still relatively new, commercial drone photography for real estate use is still not widespread, but when the FAA and other federal agencies release guidelines for private and commercial use, the real estate industry can easily see the biggest benefit from these types of photographic tools.
