Buffalo Perspective - My New Company!

So I have been busy!! I know if you have read my blog you know I am always busy, but this has been a different busy. Between 2013-2016 I spent most time with family and with community groups growing the Buffalo Tech scene. I feel I did what I set out to do. But I was working with many entrepreneurs in Buffalo, but I was not, and I struggled with what I wanted to create as a business.

When I got my drone in November of 2016 I didn't think much of a business idea from it, after all I considered it more of a toy or a fun hobby. I went to the National Association of Realtors conference and met Steve Irwin the CEO of Autel, and he was on a panel that talked about Drone's in Real Estate.  

After learning lots about the drone, FAA rules and regulations, how to start a business and file the correct paperwork, I am now a proud owner of a business! 

A very simple concept, take aerial photography and videos using the drone. 

I was incorporated in April 2017 and since then, I have had lots of requests to do flyovers. From Boy Scouts doing a camporee, to Dragon Boat racing and of course Real Estate! Its been fun learning all the things I need to do along with the Part 107 sUAS Pilot license. 

I plan on blogging about that specific topic soon! 

But in the meantime check out some of my videos on my YouTube Channel and Subscribe if you like it!!

I have lots of cool videos that I have done and have learned a lot about film editing through trial and error, and from other creators on YouTube. 

Here are a few shots from my collection!

Buffalo Real Estate Market hits New Record in 2016

Well, if you have been watching or reading the news, Buffalo is doing great in many areas. That includes, manufacturing, entrepreneurship, medical advances, marketing and of course Real Estate. Our market has been strong in recent years but 2016 proved to be record breaking!
As you can see above, for the first time ever in our history we broke over 12,000 sales of Residential Homes and Condo and Townhouse combined. Almost $2 billion in total dollar volume. Even though the graph only goes back 10 years, I have reports that go back to 1988 and never before in the history of our records show any higher volumes recorded.
The next graph, shows 2 figures very important to the sale of a home and those are Days on Market (How long it takes to sell a home) and Average Sale Price. As you can see the Days on Market for the past 2 years is less than 60 days! And the Average sale price is at an all time high of $154,046! Your best investment is in a home in WNY.
This is great news if you are in the market to sell your home! And if you are thinking about buying, then the time is now, because our trends only show that our market is still going up so waiting will cost you more next year!!
Be sure to contact a Real Estate Broker or Salesperson to get all the up to the minute information, so they can help you sell your home at the correct value, or help you buy your dream home!
