Commercial Real Estate Video Tours
By aerial drone pilot, Stanley Dobbins, Jr.
“Aerial drone photos and video opens up a dimension unseen at eye level.”
Consider a real estate video tour to give more dimension and range than still photographs. You can show properties to potential buyers and tenants from around the world any time of the day or night without having to lift a finger. This saves time scheduling property tours, driving, and physically touring the space. Use this valuable time for other revenue generating tasks or only serious prospects that request a physical tour after viewing the video tour.
PlusCorp Photography takes breathtaking aerial photography and video by drone. Our aerial drone pilot holds a Certificate of Aircraft Registration by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to operate a drone for commercial use, which gives us an advantage over our competition. We are serious about our craft. We continuously educate ourselves on safety and new skills to improve our services. We are able to take stunning photos and video of commercial real estate developments and construction projects from start to finish. We can even shoot your footage in high definition 4k resolution.
Aerial drone photography opens up a completely new dimension. Which is why this service is ideal for projects that need to show architectural details as well as highlight the entire site and surrounding area. Aerials offer a tour of the entire site without having to physically step foot on the property.
In addition to aerial photography and video, we also offer high quality interior and exterior video footage. When combined with aerial services this provides a real estate tour of the surrounding area as well as highlighting the subject property inside and out.View Price List
Scheduling Your Video Tour
Everything starts by contacting PlusCorp. You can reach us by phone or e-mail. We start by discussing the specs of your property, surrounding development, and features you’d like to highlight in the video tour. We require an outline of the entire site for aerial (drone) service request. We also ask that you share with us any existing marketing materials such as flyers, offering memorandums, or property website so that we understand the real estate to produce a comprehensive video tour that will showcase the property at its highest value.
While residential real estate agents have explored and utilized video and virtual tours to market their listings more so than commercial real estate professionals, there seems to be a shift as more commercial agents step up their marketing game for competitive edge and convenience.
Online property tours won’t eliminate physical property tours altogether, but they are a way to tour at all hours and can help buyers or tenants narrow the selection of properties they want to visit in person. Thus also saving time for the listing agent and their staff.
There are multiple types of online property tours to consider for your listing from a simple interactive 2D tour made with still photographs to actual video footage. Factors to consider when making this decision include budget and if you want to provide an interactive tour versus a video tour that only requires one click to play from start to finish.
Day of Your Aerial Drone Photo or Video Session
Depending on the weather, we will take the aerial drone shots on the best available upcoming weather day. Once we’re at the location, we will make notes as to what the best angles might be. We’ve done many aerial drone shoots whether taking photos or video, which gives us the expertise to know which visual perspectives will shine from high in the air.
When we’ve sufficiently scoped out the area, we begin the shoot. PlusCorp makes sure you have plenty of options to choose from with your photos and video clips. This is why we take many shots of the location at a variety of different angles. Sometimes, you stumble onto something you didn’t even plan for and it looks amazing. We give ourselves plenty of latitude to make those discoveries.
After Your Session
As soon as the shoot is done and we’re packed up, we begin post production.
Photography: We review each file and upload the best shots to a private gallery. We will send you an email with a link to view the unedited photo proofs within two business days. Turnaround time for edited photos is two business days after we’ve received your photo selection. Typically turnaround time from the shoot to final delivery is three business days. You will be able to select the number of images you want to order. We take numerous shots to ensure you have an adequate number of final photos for your marketing materials.
Video: The first video draft will be ready for review within 3-5 business days. Please allow 2-3 business days for requested revisions for each draft. Typically turnaround time from the shoot to delivery of the final video ranges from 7 to 21 business days depending on client response time.
Unless requested otherwise, we apply basic editing to all final delivered media files. These enhancements are designed to look natural, but make the imagery pop with vibrant colors and clarity. When the enhancements are finalized, we provide you with download access to the high-resolution files, which you can apply to as many applications as you desire.
