Realtors® Applaud FAA's Proposed Rule to Allow Commercial Drone Use for Real Estate

WASHINGTON, Feb. 15, 2015 — (PRNewswire) —  National Association of Realtors® President Chris Polychron, executive broker with 1st Choice Realty in Hot Springs, Arkansas, issued the following statement about new proposed rules for unmanned aircraft systems issued today by the Federal Aviation Administration:

Chris Polychron, a Realtor(r) from Hot Springs, Ark., is the 2015 President of the National Association of Realtors(r). NAR, The Voice for Real Estate(r), is America's largest trade association, representing 1 million members involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries. A Realtor(r) for 27 years, Chris is an executive broker with 1st Choice Realty in Hot Springs, specializing in residential and commercial brokerage.

"The proposed rules announced today for the commercial use of unmanned aerial vehicles are good news for property owners and Realtors® who desire to embrace cutting-edge technology to enhance the process of buying and selling real estate with images gathered by unmanned aerial vehicles.

"Realtors® support the proposed federal regulation, which would allow for safe commercial use of UAV technology by the real estate industry for the purposes of marketing real estate.

"NAR plans to submit comments to the agency and will continue to work with our members to educate them about the future safe, responsible and legal uses of UAVs; however, until the final rule is published, NAR discourages Realtors® from using UAV photography or video for commercial purposes without an FAA exemption."  

The National Association of Realtors®, "The Voice for Real Estate," is America's largest trade association, representing 1 million members involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries.
