Q: Is it really worth the money? The home will sell eventually.
A: With so many listings and competitors in Real Estate in Edmonton and the vicinity it pays to differentiate your properties. Sellers and buyers are looking for realtors who are giving that extra that will justify your commission.
The majority of properties are first searched via the internet whether here in Alberta, elsewhere in Canada or overseas. First impressions count and you want the buyer to click on your property and want to learn more and attend a viewing.
Q: What is involved in using Drone Your Home?
A: It depends on what service you require. If it does not involve the aerial drone, then we simply agree upon and suitable time and day to attend the property and we film / photograph / 360º Virtual Property Tour . The photographs are delivered either via Dropbox or we can arrange for them to be loaded onto a USB. Promotional videos once all / any editing amendments have been made, it will be uploaded to your dedicated Youtube channel. Alternatively we can provide a link for embedding into a website of your choosing. We also help with Social Media feeds. The 360º Virtual Property Tours are prepared and a dedicated webpage is made public. We can adapt these tours to really personalize them for your company.
For aerial drone work you would contact us and we will ask some questions about the property to be filmed / photographed. Drone Your Home will do some homework to ensure we can fly at the location and will likely want to carry out a site survey as required by Transport Canada. If all good we will then agree a date and time and will attend and film the property (Both aerial and ground film and photography available). Your needs will dictate how long the process will take but the majority of properties can be completed with one flight which usually runs between 15 and 20 minutes. We will then edit your footage and photographs and send them via a secure link and /or can provide them on a USB.
A liability release waiver and an authorization to film / photograph the property document will need to be signed by both the realtor and the property owner BEFORE any flight commences. These can be forwarded to you in advance for signatures but they must be received back completed prior to any flight.
Q: I still have some questions not covered here.
A: Please contact us and ask away. We are happy to answer your questions and discuss how we can help your business.
