Video: "How to Make $100,000 a year Pushing a Button" DanSmigrod 6 22 hoursWingman (1624): I remember similar video about drones. Reality is that you cannot fly where you want and most jobs are exactly there. I know video guys who will fly even if it is not allowed filming with all video effects including manual orbiting. The fine for breaking drone rules can reach $7000 in Australia. However they charge for property video $300-700. Regarding Kevin's Matterport video you can use a camera anywhere unless it is some kind of...

Grit Daily: Guided Virtual Tours: The End of the Leasing Agent? DanSmigrod 2 26 daysDataventurer (130): I did read the entire article (fairly short) and watched the two videos on the company's home page. It appears the target market for this offering is multi-unit properties. The sample tour is for a student housing facility. Their pricing model is pretty pricey and they charge a beefy monthly service fee, too. The pricing would be reasonable for that kind of situation, but not for a single family residence. Of interest to me is that the...
Video: Matterport Tour as the 1st Viewing (Saves Agents Time) DanSmigrod 2 29 daysHome3D (2672): The basic message here is the same as I currently express to my clients, and some have gotten surprising results.
