Drones Helping Sell Bay Area Homes

The San Francisco Chronicle reports videos and photos taken by inexpensive drones are being used effectively to help sell even moderately priced homes in the Bay Area. Often times ground-level photos are not overly impressive but aerial shots can add real excitement to even the most mundane location. These drones are generally small remote-controlled quadcopters (4 rotators) equipped with an inexpensive video camera such as a GoPro.

the drones effectiveness as a selling tool is unquestioned; what is in doubt is whether the FAA will eventually crack down on such usage for commercial purposes. Current regulations allow the usage of drones for “recreational purposes’ only.
