Drone-in-a-box for real estate? How Drones Are Transforming Real Estate Marketing

Real estate has become the number one industry in North America that uses drones for marketing purposes. And the numbers projecting the growth of the drone industry are staggering:
 

10 million drones were sold worldwide last year, that number is expected to nearly triple by 2021

 

Drone industry value was estimated at $3.3 billion in 2015; by 2025, it's expected to be $90 billion

 

NAR reports that the interest in using drones for marketing is already pervasive: 44% of members either use drones for marketing (14%), report that someone in their office uses drones for marketing (12%), or plan on using drones for marketing (18%).

Senate Bill 18-109: Authorize Audio-Video Communication Notarial Acts
SB18-109, sponsored by Senator Gardner (R-Colorado Springs), Representative Garnett (D-Denver), and Representative Wist (R-Centennial) allows notaries public to perform notarial acts using audio-visual communication. The process is called remote notarization and it's similar to a skype or face-time type of interaction where there is audio and video communication between the notary and the person having a document notarized.
