Drones are hot property.

Drone technology has made its way into the American real estate market.

"Drones have been used for military reasons for 20 to 30 years, but in the last five years costs are coming down," said Derek Tye, president of The Tye Group, told the Cincinnati Enquirer.

After hearing about drones being used for home tours out west, Tye bought a remote control helicopter, attached a GoPro camera to it and started making videos from the sky of properties he was selling.

Tye cuts the footage into videos that he narrates and uploads to helihometours.com and YouTube.

The drones are reportedly most popular in California where they are used mostly for cliff-side homes to get a view from all sides.
