    Drone photography won't work for homes in all areas, Morrison said.

    "I probably wouldn't use it in a town center where it's on a 60-by-120 (foot) lot and surrounded by lots of neighbors' houses," he said. Likewise, downtown high-rise condos aren't great candidates for drone photography.

    "It's great if the property is expansive and has something like stables, lots of land, farmland, second dwellings or additional buildings on the land," Balduf said. "You can fly out and give a tour of the entire estate."
