If you’ve ever wondered how to use one of the tiny, flying cameras that are storming the marketplace, now would be your best chance to learn. 
On Monday, August 6, a drone technology class will be held at the Oxford Convention Center from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. for all Oxonians to participate in. This event, hosted by the MS Coalition of Appraisers and Castle & Cooke Mortgage LLC, is a chance for all ages and professions to come and learn the ins-and-outs of drone technology. 
The class addresses all the laws and regulations required to fly and operate a drone. Jean McCarty, executive director of the MS Coalition of Appraisers, said drones are reshaping the technology world as we know it, and this class will allow people to learn how drone technology can enhance their profession. 
 
“In the last years, this new technology has reached new heights and is changing the real estate market,” McCarty said. “Almost all real estate is online and customers generally begin their search for a home on the internet.”
Given the need for more data for analytics, drones are becoming an extremely valuable tool for real estate:

  • According to MLS, America’s real estate portal, homes listed with aerial and ground-level images sold 68 percent faster than homes listed with only ground-based photographs.
  • The National Association of Realtors stated that 90 percent of buyers search for a home online.
  • Mist Media states that the average user spends 88 percent more time on a website with video.
  • A RedFin study shows that professionally-photographed listings sell for higher prices, averaging between $934 more and $1,819 more. 

But McCarty says that anyone can benefit from coming to the class and learning more about drones—not just real estate professionals. 
“We already have a photographer, an engineer and and interested citizen attending,” McCarty said. “Attorneys, farmers, engineers, architects, will all benefit from using drones.  You can use drone technology in so many ways — a roofing company can use a drone to inspect home roofs, multi-story buildings and more. The capabilities drones allow is unlimited.”

Lamar Ellis will be the instructor for the class. He is an accredited instructor and certified remote drone pilot with more than five years of experience in teaching, consulting and working in the drone industry. He has combined his 30 years of real estate appraisal experience into a seven-hour seminar which will give attendees all the steps necessary to be able to incorporate drone technology into their practice. 
The price for the class is $49.95 per person. To register for this event go to https://mscapp.org or call 601-209-8920.
