The Advantages of Using Aerial Photographs for Real Estate

February 25, 2016

Aerial photographs are especially useful in the real estate industry to show overall views of large buildings or properties or land that is open to development, as well as the surrounding landscape, roads, and other buildings and features.

Pictures can attract potential buyers to a property, but ground-level shots often cannot do a home or commercial building justice. Photos taken from the ground cannot convey the size of a majestic home or the scenery on a large piece of property. A bird’s eye view can allow prospective buyers to appreciate the size and scope of a building and the surrounding landscape, which will draw their interest and encourage them to view the property in person.

Aerial photography is also useful in showing land that is open for development to potential investors. Companies that are interested in building homes, businesses, resorts, schools, or other structures on a piece of land need to have an accurate understanding of its size to make their plans. Developers also need to be aware of the surrounding landscape and factors such as roads and other buildings that would influence their plans. Aerial photography also allows developers to monitor the progress of a project as it is being brought to fruition.

If you are a real estate agent interested in selling a building or piece of land, aerial photography can allow you to show potential customers the size of a building and the surrounding landscape and draw their interest. Aerial photography can also benefit real estate developers who want to build on a piece of land and monitor the progress on a project as it is completed.
