Tulsa, Oklahoma-based broker-owner Darryl Baskin says the drone footage he shoots gives his sellers an advantage by showing off desirable features like spacious backyards and sturdy roofs.

On one recent flight, he discovered his client had a few loose shingles that needed to be replaced. Baskin told the Tulsa World he’s aware that the FAA has warned real estate agents who use drones to shoot footage of listings that they can’t claim to be hobbyists, but isn’t worried regulators will come down on him.

“It seems like an overreach to suggest a home seller can’t have a drone flying over their own property for the purposes of showing it for sale,” Baskin said. Source: tulsaworld.com.
