We've all been there, you list a beautiful rural property, with the biggest shed, pool, massive water tanks, a dam and undulating green lawn that seems to go forever. Excitedly, you order the drone shots, but due to the regulations, the drone operator has to go further back than usual to get the whole block in, then you can barely make out the shed from the trees. It's a little deflating for all involved - believe me.
Well, there is a way to shoot the property, fit in all the features mentioned above, in crisp clear detail AND get an amazing top down view of the entire property. Also, if required you can retain a huge high res file to send to potential buyers or perhaps frame a copy for your seller's pool room.
This type of shot is a little complex, but so very rewarding when it all comes together. I call it, the MEGA SHOT. I was toying with the name "MONEY SHOT", but we all know the connotations of that, so lets keep it clean... MEGA SHOT.
So what is the MEGA SHOT? Well, simply put, we snake the drone over the lot, taking pictures as we go - then edit them somewhat like a jigsaw puzzle and piece it all together for the final product.
This shot is ideal for properties that don't normally fit on a single frame (over half an acre), or properties that adjoin something cool, like a beautiful park or marina, or maybe a development, where you want to have a detailed view of every lot available. As you can see, it has many applications.
Sounds good? Yeah, we like it too. Plus, it's got so many benefits that you can use to get a listing over a competitor. I'll name a few.
The first is a 36 shot of a couple of half acres sold prior to hitting the market, however the agent wanted to post something on social and REA to acknowledge the sale.
The second is an almost 7acre lot in Barragup. This property is exceptionally unique to say the least, so we took 86 overlapping shots and merged them together to get the result above. Obviously, the high res shots you send to the buyer would not have the coloured overlay.
The photos are the low res ones - the agent will have access to high res.
