Proposed Rules and Regulation for the Usage of Drone in the Real Estate Industry  

The rules and regulations proposed by the Federal Aviation Administration consist of different types of permits required and how when and where the unmanned aerial vehicle can be used. The rules and regulations of the FAA also detail the entire process for reporting any accidents and or injuries related to using this unmanned aerial vehicle. Some samples of proposed stipulations included in the rules and regulations proposed by the FAA include:  

  • Commercial drones could only travel no farther than five hundred feet in altitude as well as one hundred miles per hour and this can only be operated during daylight. 
  • Drone operators are required to pass a certain test for the knowledge in aeronautics and they will also be given a permit. However, the permit should be renewed every two years.  
  • Drone operators must bear in mind that all flights should remain in their sight line.  

Currently, the National Association of Realtors is working with the Federal Aviation Administration in order to create its own list of rules and requirements for use in the field of real estate. Over all this simply means that real estate agents could be able to create aerial views of certain properties for sale during the time in order to enhance their listing.  

Advantages You Can Get from Using Drone Technology in the Real Estate Industry  

Aerial Technology would allow real estate agents to take real estate aerial video and photos of the property using the Drone including its nearby amenities. Real estate agents could also show interested buyers where a house is located in proximity to natural settings including a beach or park. Currently, the only method of capturing these images aside from using a drone is through helicopter which is a whole lot expensive and cannot capture close-up shots.  

In addition to that, commercial properties would also be able to take advantage of this aerial technology just like any large tracts of land. Real estate agents selling large properties would also to be able to provide a reliable overview of the certain property and it’s highly beneficial for them since using this data can be able to provide valuable information to potential property buyers.  

Furthermore, a lot of real estate agents say that they like to use drones primarily for luxurious properties. But, drones are also effective if it is used inside the home. This is because drones can provide a much smoother door of the home than what is captured using a traditional camera.
