Drones & Real Estate

Should anyone selling a property be including some element of aerial imagery in the listing of their properties?

The answer to the question above is an absolute resounding – YES!!

Sellers are now including aerial photography & video more & more because of one simple reason


it sells houses.

The biggest factor that generates an above-average sales record in real estate is the quality of the presentation of properties. As a real estate agent, if you combine a good sales pitch with breathtaking imagery which includes aerial photos & video, you have a winning combination. These aerial shots are now quickly & easily achieved using modern drone technology.

Can I do it myself?

Yes, but beware, consider these three important facts:


  1. Are you actually allowed to fly in the airspace above the property?
  2. You will be insured if you cause any damage to any person or property.
  3. Will the quality be as good as from a professional?

Is the airspace restricted or controlled?

The following map outlines the amount of restricted & controlled airspace locations scattered around Sydney &  the Central Coast. Each with minimum distances you must not fly in around each of them. Anyone found to be flying in any restricted area can be liable for very heavy fines.

What happens if you crash your drone?

No insurance company will provide you cover without you being licensed, or having adequate approved training. Should your drone come crashing down on someone’s property, car, or … heaven forbid, a person themselves, you may find yourself being liable for thousands, if not millions of dollars.


All Drone Productions Australia pilots are fully licensed by CASA (The Civil Aviation Safety Authority) holding the RePL & AROC (Remote Pilot License & Aeronautical Radio Operator’s Certificate) so are able to operate in all controlled & restricted areas.
