"Aerial images and drone videos take us to the next level. It keeps us cutting edge and gets us great exposure. Clients are starting to EXPECT these types of services, so if you don’t provide them, you’re already behind. When they see you do have it, the perception is that you have very strong marketing and go the “extra mile” for your sellers. "

"Virtuance was once again a key reason for my successful closing. My recent listing was previously listed by 2 other agents, 204 days on the market and no sale. Our team presented this house using the HDReal® images and aerial photography, it went pending in 3 days and closed 16 days later for above list price. "
Drone photography, also known as aerial photography, is captured by an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), more commonly known as a drone. A camera is attached to the drone and can capture still images and video. From the ground, a licensed drone pilot operates the drone while capturing images and video.
The difference between a ground shoot and aerial shoot: elevation of the vantage point, equipment, and what is photographed. The Aerial shoot has a licensed drone pilot that has been trained with photographing property exteriors with a drone in the sky! Our Ground photographers capture the subject property with their camera and capture both interior and exterior images.
Our aerial stills and/or video will capture your property’s exterior front, rear facade, and grounds from the skies. The aerial view will also show the property’s location in the neighborhood, the views beyond the home, and the proximity to marketable landmarks.
Our photographers follow the recommended guidelines of aviation authorities and fly below 400 feet (121 meters) for aerial photography. In certain locations, additional airspace restrictions may require that we fly lower or cancel the shoot (if drones are not permitted within that area).
Restricted airspaces can include:
Please be aware that we are also not typically permitted to fly our drones over public or common spaces, such as public parks, beaches, and homeowners associations, so we cannot complete aerial subdivision shoots and do not offer aerial stock images.
Due to the more delicate nature of the flying drones, inclement weather such as high winds, rain, and snow are not conducive to aerial photography. If the pilot doesn’t feel the weather conditions can support the flight, we will cancel the photoshoot at no cost. We always recommend checking the weather forecast in advance of your appointment as well as the day before the photoshoot.
For safety reasons, we cannot fly a drone inside a home. Flying a drone inside a home has a lot of room for issues to happen, not to mention would likely give the homeowner a panic attack. We find that our ground photographers are best able to capture the interiors and exteriors from the ground level. Our aerial photography best captures property exteriors from the sky.
Our aerial pilots need to submit a flight plan to the FAA for their photoshoots and sometimes they need prior authorization to fly in restricted airspace. Since they need to be cleared to fly at a certain time of day, we do need to schedule an exact date and time
Our Aerial and Ground photoshoots are scheduled as two separate orders for the same address as they require two different photographers with very different equipment. It’s best to schedule each order back-to-back instead of at the same time. We don’t want either photographer showing up your images!
