Photography is not "bells & whistles", they're mandatory, standard tools.

$300.00 for a house to be shot & droned.

On average I spend $200 for photos ($150 for 40 photos and $50 for aerials) - UNLESS the house is under $300,000 in our crazy market and I know I will get at least five offers when I put it on the MLS, so then I take my own pics when I'm putting on the lockbox, then duck.

For higher end homes I spent $150 for a nice video because I don't have time to do my own anymore.

I also think Real Bird is something wonderful I pay for ($89 yearly) because it gives me a beautiful presentation and it's easy to send to agents.

Well I take the pics themselves & then it go into 'auto pilot' from there to Circlepix which we have a contract with. We have a variety of services that lenders also sponsor with us. We are truly blessed in that regard.

I just noticed a few drone photos that I really like that I'm going to look into. So my person const is pretty minimal.
