DroneVU Studios brings you another exclusive – a 360 degree aerial panorama of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge.

The Bob Graham Sunshine Skyway Bridge, commonly known as the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, is a bridge spanning Tampa Bay, Florida, with a cable-stayed main span, and a total length of 21,877 feet. The Sunshine Skyway Bridge cost $244 million to build, and was opened to traffic on April 20, 1987. It replaced an older bridge constructed in 1954, which was partly destroyed in a collision in 1980. The Travel Channel rated the Sunshine Skyway number 3 in its special on the “Top 10 Bridges” in the World. The bridge is considered the “flag bridge” of Florida.

We have even more virtual tours, aerial photography footage, traditional photography footage, real estate footage, nature footage, and other types of footage on the way, so stay tuned as we continue to bring you video and photography footage from around the Tampa Bay area and other parts of Florida.

Video Virtual Tour of $1M+ Odessa Property

In this virtual tour we use 100% video to tour an Odessa, FL equestrian Estate. What makes this property unique is that it has both waterfront access with a dock, as well as horse stables. We combined aerial video with traditional exterior and interior video to walk our viewers through this rare property.

DroneVU Studios specializes in creating virtual tours of high end properties such as this one throughout the Tampa Bay area.  We can showcase your listing to your potential buyers using a variety of techniques including video, slideshows, aerial video, and traditional real estate photography.

This rare Odessa property is a great example of one of the many hidden real estate gems located right here in Tampa Bay. Combining a waterfront property with equestrian facilities lets its owners feel right at home with both their horses and their boats.

Only aerial video was capable of property showcasing the surrounding area for this property, and interior and exterior video was also used to ensure viewers saw the expansive interior,  expansive kitchen, magnificent living room views of the waterfront, and the upstairs bedroom, gym, and bathroom.

For this customer we did not stop there, we also created interior, exterior, and aerial photographs of the property which will help this customer attract even the most exclusive clientele.

What Real Estate Photography Footage Do I Need?

Real-Estate-Photography-Package-Choices
Real-Estate-Photography-Package-Choices

In this post we would like to share some of our experiences from working with our extensive network of realtors as we continue to film real estate properties from the ground, interior, and from the air all over the Tampa Bay area.

One of the most common questions we get from our customers is what photography package do we recommend for their listing. Obviously not all listings are created equal, but we do have some loose recommendations we follow when working with most of our customers.

For example, paying for a full interior, exterior, and aerial video real estate package does not make sense if the property is going to list for $350K. Just like selecting an interior and exterior only package does not make sense when the house is going to list for over $1M.

So below is a table which shows what we typically recommend to our customers:

Real Estate Property Value: $100 – $150,000

Recommended Photography Package: None
Explanation: Properties in this range usually will not benefit from professional photography at all

Real Estate Property Value: $160,000 – $300,000

Recommended Photography Package: Interior / Exterior Only
Explanation: Properties in this range primarily just need high quality interior and exterior pictures. If the property has a lot of land, waterfront, or a great community, we may recommend aerial as well

Real Estate Property Value: $300,000 – $500,000

Recommended Photography Package: Interior / Exterior / Aerial
Explanation: Properties in this range will usually benefit from aerial pictures as well as interior and exterior pictures.  Also at the higher end of this price range we start recommending virtual tours of the property.

Real Estate Property Value: $500,000 – $1M

Recommended Photography Package: Interior / Exterior / Aerial / Virtual Tour
Explanation: Properties in this range we recommend interior, exterior, aerial, and a virtual tour. For the higher end of this range we recommend our enhanced virtual tours which include exterior video in addition to interior and exterior pictures

Real Estate Property Value: $1M+

Recommended Photography Package: Interior / Exterior / Aerial / Aerial Video / Exterior Video /Interior Video
Explanation: Properties in this range we recommend everything to make your listing stand out and to show your customer that you will stop at nothing to sell their exquisite home as quickly as possible.

Exceptions

Keep in mind that these are very loose guidelines and we frequently adjust our recommendations based on the customer’s requirements. Sometimes the real estate agent only won the seller’s business by guaranteeing certain services such as a virtual tour or aerial footage. In those cases we are happy to oblige since we are a full service aerial, traditional, and video provider.  But we are in the business to ensure our customer’s get the most value for their footage which is why we make these recommendations.

Biltmore Estate – Album Updated

Biltmore Estate - Largest Houe In America
Biltmore Estate – Largest Houe In America

DroneVU Studios went on location to the Biltmore Estate located at 1 Approach Road, Asheville, NC to film the exterior of the largest house in the United States.

The Biltmore Estate is a large (8,000 acre) private estate and tourist attraction in Asheville, North Carolina. Biltmore House, the main house on the estate, is a Châteauesque-styled mansion built by George Washington Vanderbilt II between 1889 and 1895 and is the largest privately owned house in the United States, at 178,926 square feet of floor space (135,280 square feet of living area). Still owned by one of Vanderbilt’s descendants, it stands today as one of the most prominent remaining examples of the Gilded Age. In 2007, it was ranked eighth in America’s Favorite Architecture by the American Institute of Architects.

Biltmore has four acres of floor space and a total of 252 rooms in the house including 33 bedrooms for family and guests, 43 bathrooms, 65 fireplaces, three kitchens and 19th-century novelties such as electric elevators, forced-air heating, centrally controlled clocks, fire alarms and an intercom system.
