The NAR Weighs in on Drones
One day soon, drone video or photography in real estate listings may be a minimum requirement in many markets.
That’s because from the top-down, the real estate industry is embracing drone/UAV photography as an important and valuable emerging technology.
As Tom Salomone, president of the National Association of Realtors put it,
Drone technology offers a tremendous opportunity for the business of real estate and the broader economy. That’s why NAR continues to support the integration of drones into the National Airspace and a regulatory landscape that allows for the responsible commercial use of drones.
The National Association of Realtors has set up a resource page to help Realtors and other interested parties navigate the government's drone regulations as they incorporate drones into their listing strategies. "The NAR is well aware of this trend, and we will be working with regulators to make sure that people are responsibly licensed to use drone technology. We will also be encouraging our members to use it," said Bill Brown, president of the NAR.
