Do I need property releases for this particular shot?

just trying to make sure I can sell this shot. because I counted 25 houses and it would be completely impractical to track down and obtain 25 property releases for a shot that will sell for 20$ once a year…
thanks in advance

doesn’t seem so to me, more info here:

Private homes and buildings

If you’re photographing, filming, or even illustrating a recognizable property you probably need a property release. There may be an exception if the property appears in a minor way and isn’t the main subject of the image or video, such as urban skylines with several buildings.

Some examples include:

  • A ticketed location like an amusement park, museum, palace, or estate,
  • Distinctive homes or parts of homes (including interiors) that are easily recognized, either by their design or by their owner, like Gaudi’s Casa Batlló in Barcelona.
  • Private property that is recognizable as a landmark or business and is central to the photograph/film/illustration, like the Burj Al Arab in Dubai.

When you don’t need a release

Not all property photos require releases. If your content feature generic houses and interiors that don’t have any identifiable features, you’re in the clear.
