When should you use drone photos for a real estate listing in St Pete FL?

When is the best time to utilize drone photography to market your listing?

The MLS sates that 68% of houses are being sold quicker when they are utilizing drone photography over ones that aren’t.  That being said this depends on what  the surrounding location looks like.  Whenever someone asks about Drone photos I always immediately say how close is the water in proximity to the house?  Mainly because that’s what the money shots are going to be.  If you have a waterfront home  you need to showcase the water it’s pretty straightforward.  Also if there are landmarks around it is a good idea to showcase them from an aerial perspective.  We live in St. Petersburg Florida showing off landmarks like the Skyway bridge, buildings will add value to your listing when photographed with the drone.  Type the address into Google maps and check nearby locations to see if drone photos are a good idea.

Locations that are good for Drone photos in St. Pete. FL

If your house is on a double yellow line and there’s a lot of traffic going by that’s probably going to deter potential homebuyers from  visiting your open house.  If you have a waterfront house we absolutely recommend to add drone photos to your listing package.  Is the location going to hurt your listing or is it going to help sell your listing?  My photographers are licensed for the FAA to fly drones commercially and are outfitted with high-end camera equipment that we know how to use to capture the best images around.

Best time of day for Drone Photography in St. Pete Florida

If the view faces west morning is the best time to shoot. For east-facing properties, afternoon is great.  If your property faces north, any time between 10:00am and 2pm is ideal. And if it faces south, you'll want your photos taken first thing in the morning, or last thing in the day.  A good rule of thumb is to shoot always shoot away from the sun.  when you shoot into the sun you loose, dynamics, colors, and contrast.    If you would like to book an appointment with us just feel free to give me a call my number 727-490-3411 or you can email us at  bear@BearKarryproductions.com thanks have a great day!
