Today’s episode is all about drones for real estate mapping. Hernandez in the Philippines called in to ask how he should price his real estate mapping services and what equipment he should use. We also discuss the deliverables you’ll want to provide for your clients and where the real estate mapping field is headed. Additionally, we talk about the best drones and software for real estate mapping.
If you’re not a Drone U member, you may want to sign up soon. We currently have a mapping course in the works!
Thanks for the question Hernandez! Fly safe!
