NAR Research states Floor Plans Very Useful!

Buyers rate floor plans as very useful website content.

Give buyers what they want and get more people coming to your website vs the other guys!  According to NAR, floor plans were right behind photos and detailed property information in terms of usefulness of website content.  It makes sense.  Floor plans allow browsers to see the potential flow of a home, where the kids will sleep, where the man cave or kraft room could go, and more.  It helps people visualize how they could live in the home.  Combine that with the tools FloorPlanOnline provides, and you have the complete visualization tool to help people feel comfortable with the decision of purchasing the home.

Aerial Photography & The Law

Don’t get stuck with an $11,000 Fine!

Now that the FAA rules around aerial photography for commercial purposes (including real estate listings) are fairly clear, it is extremely important to only work with FAA licensed pilots – either a pilot that holds a Section 333 exemption or a person that holds a Part 107 remote pilot certificate.  If you are using someone that does not hold one of these certificates, you could be subject to fines up to $11,000 per occurrence (a change of batteries is considered 2 occurrences) and possible jail time!
