I spent more than a decade as the president of Third Cherry Creek Townhouse Corp. in southeast Denver. As a result, I'm familiar with how they operate and how my drone service can be helpful to Boards and Property Managers.
Here are a few ways aerial photography or video can be a benefit:
* An aerial photo or video can enhance your Association's website and marketing materials.
* A drone can conduct visual roof, gutter or property inspections. This can save time and enhance safety (so someone doesn't have to climb a ladder to check if a gutter is being blocked by leaves, a ball, etc.).
* A photo of your streets, walkways or common areas can help the Board plan upcoming projects.
* These snapshots also can be used for historical purposes, showing the evolution of the community.
Did you know...
* There are more than 9,800 Common Interest Communities (CICs), or homeowners' associations (HOAs), in Colorado. It is estimated that 2.187 million Colorado residents live in an HOA. That's about 38% of the state's estimated population of 5.7 million people.
Here's one way to show off your entrance on marketing items. See below for a different angle.
To assist the Association, I photographed the flat roofs on all their buildings, did the same for their covered carport parking areas and even shot stills of the swimming pool from above. When you get aerial photos, they can be enlarged on your screen to more closely check for potential issues. (That's a lot easier than sending a handyman up a ladder and onto a roof - especially on a windy, rainy or snowy day.
I can do the same for you, regardless of whether it's your private home, company, HOA or multi-family apartment complex.
Compare the photo at the top of this page, taken from ground level, against this one to the right, which was taken from the air.
Gives a little better perspective!
Anyone can say, "we're close to...." However, an aerial photo actually will show off your neighborhood and its proximity to other places. (Example, the Denver Tech Center, in background.)
Have a community garden? A photo from above can help the coordinators and gardeners in their planning and operational processes.
