8 Reasons Why Not to Buy a Drone for Real Estate Videos
So every real-estate-mogul-wannabe is talking about getting a drone to shoot epic video of their real estate. Well, let me save you some time and energy in your search for the perfect drone.

A Better Alternative
Really, how many listings do you have that could actually benefit from an aerial view of the property?
If you’re the type of person that goes to the night club twice a week and blows $10k on a bar tab, then everyone EXPECTS you to get a quadcopter and hire a video pilot.
However, if you’ve got better ways to spend your capital, hire a video pilot on a per-need basis. Rates are about $100 per hour, which should give you PLENTY of aerial footage for your 2 minute promo video.
Heck, even if you had 20 properties that could sell faster with aerial video footage, you’d save about 50 hours, and $1,000 by hiring someone else to shoot the footage.
