Millennials and Generation Z’s live online. We grew up with social media and today’s technology, it has become apart of our everyday lives. Growing up like this, these generations are extremely visual-based. We scroll throughout our social media feeds at lighting speed, picking up fractions of information as we go and only stop when something really catches our eye. 

Let’s face it, these two generations are the current and next groups of people to buy their first homes. So, how do you sell to these quick scrolling visually obsessed future homebuyers? With unique and catchy content, and what better place to start than with drone footage. Below I have listed a couple of ways drone footage stands out to young homebuyers.

  • Unique Views: It isn’t every day an average person sees a beautiful home from 350 feet in the sky. With drone footage, they can see the layout of the land, the amenities of the property, and how close they are to their neighbors. In a world where people want to be “WOWed,” this is the kind of footage, you need on all your listings.
  • Social Media Ready: Everyone is on social media nowadays and most people know how to create a good looking post. Drone photos are social media ready and can be posted directly onto your platforms (a little bit of “touching up” maybe all that is needed). Drone video will need a little more editing work; however, if you are working with a skilled real estate photographer, you shouldn’t have to worry!😉
  • Neighborhood Layout: You are not only moving into a new house, but you are also moving into a new neighborhood. Drone footage gives potential homebuyers this unique point of view and could even seal the deal. 
  • Saves Everyone Time: By giving your clients the ability to check out your properties from the sky, they will be able to make better and quicker decisions on a property. This will reduce the amount of time you both spend showing listings because the homebuyer will already have a better idea which listings they want to view.

Drone footage is a powerful tool that helps realtors sell listings faster. The Northern Virginia real estate market offers many of the great views and opportunities that present well for drone footage. Drone footage saves everyone time and helps homebuyers make quick and better decisions on which homes to view.
