I have used(technically a professional photographer) a drone for a property. It was appropriate for that particular instance. It is not a regular practice.

For me it is price point (property) specific.

I rarely see the benefit in UAV for the densely packed communities in which I work. Of course the occasional beach estate presents a different opportunity.

I use aerial drone photography for 1 acre parcels or larger; no matter the price. I use video walk-through, not Matterport. Matterport isn't really used here. I hire a professional to do all my photography. I also have my listings professionally measured and provide a detailed floor plan. Our tax records are notorious for being 100 - 200 SF short. That can mean tens of thousands of dollars to the sellers.

In town the drone heading a loft works against the marketing because it creates a jammed in feeling. The opposite of what you want but on a 300 acre farm listing, a waterfront property the drone done in easy does it to add to the video presentation helps create interest, desire that leads to action. Have two drones, the newest named "Sputnik".

I have not had a property that warrants using a drone.  Most of what I do are tract homes and those have, in my opinion, zero need for a drone since you can see the entire property with the naked eye.
