we do use aerials whenever a property is waterfront or waterview..... also if there is a luxury home with a very complex roof system and many valleys....it shows the true magnitude of the home..... otherwise, each elevation taken with a camera is a fraction of the dynamics an aerial would provide.....

Since most of our properties are acreage, they always have aerial photos and maps.

Hi John - We have on occasion with luxury properties or acreages. I think it's going to become more common as drone photography gets more popular.

I have done a few aerials, when backing to a golf course, or have great mountain views.

Thank you all for your answers and insights, I have a handful of listings that are on 2-3 acres and another on 35 acres, I have chosen aerial for the large lot and one of the smaller lots because of outbuildings and pool that will be better shot form above.

I don't.  In most of this area there are too many airspace restrictions unless I could hitch a ride in a police helicopter.

Only when it helps sell a large lot property or to show proximty to the ocean, a golf course or another San Diego landmark. Drones are becomming standard pretty quick here, so I'm sure it'll become a silly trend for even condos.

I have a Drone, but it keeps running into things, like my house, the fence, my leg, so until I master it, my Drone will not leave my yard.   Therefore I don't offer aerial photos.

I do not, as I have not had a house that would benefit from it.  To me, for aerial shots you need a large lot.  Most tract homes don't have that, so for me a still photo of the front is sufficient.
