Drone Video—1716 Winged Foot, Pekin, IL :: Peoria, Illinois, Drone Aerial Photographer

On another drone assignment this week, here's a lovely home in the same neighborhood as the Night Hawk Court home I recently photographed (exterior and interior). 

This house also rests on the tree-lined edge of Lutticken Lake in Pekin, Illinois, just minutes from Peoria. Since I'm a FAA-certified small UAS drone pilot, Mary Ann Ladendorf at Coldwell Banker in Pekin hired me to make some new photographs of the home's exterior for her. I also shot some video footage and compiled the movie above (also available here).

You can see all the listing details on 1716 Winged Foot, Pekin, IL 61554.

VIDEO: Before and After—The Difference Professional Staging and Photography Can Make When Selling Your Home

You have a home to sell. When home buyers are clicking through listings online, you've got just seconds to grab their attention.

How will you do it?

Stunning photographs stand out in the sea of average pictures you usually see online.

But is there really that much difference between a home shown in a "typical" listing and a professionally presented home?

That's the question answered in the video above (click here if you can't see it). 

The Peoria, Illinois, home featured in the video was semi-vacant: a few pieces of furniture set about but not in any intentional way. It looked big and empty.

Tracy Molendi from Simply Organized & Staged, LLC staged the home last week and I photographed it a few days ago. The video shows some of the rooms before professional staging and photography, and then those same rooms after Tracy and I did our work. The difference is dramatic.

Put yourself in the buyers' seat as you watch: which photos make me want to learn more about this home?

As you think about what you need to do to make your home appealing to buyers, remember: you only have a few seconds to grab their mouse click. It's a tough real estate market. How will you make your home stand out? Presenting your home professionally will get it noticed.
