How Much do Drones Charge for Real Estate Photography?

March 23, 2021

Drones are not a new tool in term of real estate marketing and property photography, but when choosing a drone photographer for your estate agency or real estate business, it is important to understand the costs involved.

This helpful guide should help break down the costs of estate agency drone photography and help you budget for your next big property.

How much does drone photography cost for real estate?

There are different types of fee that a drone photographer (like us) might charge for aerial photography of real estate. These include:

  • Price per photo
  • Set pricing per property
  • Price per battery
  • Charge per hour/minute
  • Cost per flight

As a guide, we would recommend our real estate clients budget for anywhere between £100 and £300 per property for drone photos of a property.

We use the above as a very rough estimation of what aerial photography costs—and it does vary quite dramatically. For example, if you only needed 5 or so photos, then this would typically be cheaper than a full blown aerial video with custom editing and graphics etc.

A great way to find out what drone photography might cost your estate agency or real estate business, you can ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do I need photos or videos (or both)?
  • What is my budget for this property?
  • How long will the drone photographer need to be on site?
  • Do I need extras (such as boundary editing)?

Once you have a rough idea of exactly what you're looking for, get in touch and we'll be happy to provide a no obligations quotation.

Is drone photography worth it for estate agency?

You may be asking, is it worth it? Well, the answer is, not always. You may be surprised to hear that from a company that provider aerial and drone photography, but hear us out.

Drone photography is absolutely amazing for highlighting the larger properties, with gardens and great locations. If you're selling a terrace house with low curb appeal, then chances are a drone photo might be overkill. But a bungalow close to the beach? A house with a very modern facade? A property with a sizeable garden for the area? This is where drone photography really comes into it's own.

We've done lots of work with local estate agents and real estate companies that come to us with houses and properties that they think would suit drone photography. In fact, a drone photo is normally a great way to show off your property on marketing sites like Rightmove and Zoopla.
