Aerial photos are photographs taken by cameras mounted in aircraft or satellites. Aerial photos are more commonly used in the industrial Real Estate Market to get a better feel of a property’s large size and limits. Not only that: as part of the appraisal process. Imagine a power plant. Having a picture taken from the sky helped to check if there were any structural problems on hard to reach areas like the outside of a roof.
However, ever since drones became so popular and easy to manipulate, the residential real estate market has started to take aerial photos as well as a marketing ploy to help drive sales.
