Real estate brokers, agents, vendors and photographers can legally start using drones to take pictures of clients’ properties under the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) Section 333 exemption. This Whitepaper will help real estate professionals and photographers understand the opportunities, and limitations, of using drones for real estate marketing under Section 333.

The FAA has made it lawful to use drones for real estate photography only if you are flying under a Section 333 exemption and you obey all other FAR/ AIMS regulations. There are several reasons why real estate brokers and agents should file for a Section 333 Exemption Petition from the FAA.

  •     You can fly legally, right now.
  • Competing brokers are already flying (some legally, and many illegally).
  • Home sellers expect high-resolution photographs and videos from perspectives and angles that can only be taken by a drone.
  • Drone photography is a potential profit canter for your real estate brokerage or agency with many customers willing to pay for drone photography of their property.
  • Enjoy ROI with your own FAA Section 333 exemption.

The use of drones by real estate professionals is not going away. Approximately 20% of petitions filed under the Section 333 exemption involve a real estate use. The FAA with has already granted over 1,200 petitions for exemption, and approximately 120 or more petitions are being filed each week. It is extremely crucial for Real estate professionals to understand the rules before they fly, or even before they hire someone to fly on their behalf.
