We are starting to see more and more agents marketing their properties using illegal unmanned aircraft (drone) video tours. They look attractive, but are just plain illegal currently. The FAA controls all commercial use of aircraft, and only permits hobby use of drones currently. Plenty of info at the FAA website. I don’t see how they could make it any clearer.

We would love to use drones to shoot your home tour, but we are bound by federal law. We cannot.

I would suggest you be very careful about using agents who feel they are not bound by law.

Hopefully, the FAA will change the rules soon.
