You want to communicate to your buyer the proximity to the city, beaches, parks, public transport, shops and schools,” he said.“Aerial imagery should form the core marketing of every property where location is key, and the owners want to make their home stand out in the market place.”Cairns start-up SkyStock, owned and run by Tom Watson, has noticed an increase in the demand for its drone photography services and database of aerial imagery.“As we now live in a digital world, most buyers are searching for property online. For this reason, quality photography is essential,” Mr Watson (above) said. “Having access to aerial imagery can save the seller significant dollars in marketing fees. But aerial imagery is subject to weather and poor weather can significantly delay a property’s listing and marketing campaign. This is especially prevalent in the Far North where extended periods of rain are often frequent, so accessing a database can be a great option.Mr Watson said services included photoshoot editing to add markings or make changes.
