With consumer drones becoming increasingly more advanced and their prices continuously dropping, people sometimes wonder what function an organization like Vertworx serves. It’s simple really, we offer our customers a combination of a wealth of aerial cinematography experience and a deep understanding of drone rules, restrictions and law, wrapped together with comprehensive insurance and tied with an FAA commercial certification as the bow.
I recently found this Q&A that discusses some of the “rules or restrictions” that govern Real Estate drone use.
Q: We are getting ready to sell our home, and one of our neighbors offered, for a small fee, to take some aerial pictures with his drone. Are there any rules or restrictions we need to know about? — Susan
A: Drones, or unmanned aircraft systems, are revolutionizing the videos and photos people take to market and sell their homes.
Smart real estate agents and homeowners are marketing with vista views of the property and surrounding neighborhood. This sort of photography used to be out of reach of all but wealthy homeowners, but now it’s available to all comers.
The law still is still catching up to this technology, and new rules are popping up all the time. Both the Federal Aviation Administration and most state governments have been quick to enact regulations designed to ensure the public safety and privacy.
Penalties include fines and liability for getting sued if you caused damage to another person’s property. In very rare occasions, you could face criminal charges.
Using a drone to market your home? Be sure to follow the rules
That’s right, however rare, “Penalties include fines and liability for getting sued if you caused damage to another person’s property. In very rare occasions, you could face criminal charges.” Why take unnecessary risks when you can take advantage of Vertworx and get amazing quality aerial cinematography at affordable prices.
