Aerial Footage for Land Sales

If you're looking to sell a piece of land, one of the best ways to showcase its beauty and size is through aerial footage. Drone technology has made it easier than ever to capture stunning visuals that can help potential buyers get a better sense of the property. Here are some best practices to get the best aerial footage for your land sale.

  • Choose the right time of day

The best time of day to capture aerial footage is during the golden hours, which are the first hour after sunrise and the last hour before sunset. The light during these times is soft and warm, which can create stunning visuals. Midday can also work, but the harsh sunlight may result in washed-out footage.

  • Plan your shots

Before you start flying the drone, plan out the shots you want to capture. Take into account the size and shape of the property, and think about the features you want to highlight, such as a pond or a hill. Try to capture footage from a variety of angles to give potential buyers a comprehensive view of the property.

  • Fly at a safe altitude

Make sure you're flying the drone at a safe altitude to avoid any potential accidents. The FAA recommends flying below 400 feet, but you may need to adjust based on the size and location of the property. Be mindful of any obstacles such as trees, buildings, or power lines.

  • Edit the footage

Once you've captured the footage, edit it to create a compelling visual story. Trim the footage down to the most interesting shots, and add music and text overlays to create a professional-looking video. This can help your property stand out from other listings and attract potential buyers.

If you're not comfortable flying a drone or don't have access to one, consider hiring a professional drone pilot to capture the footage for you.
