The Best WordPress Real Estate Themes
Most people who are looking to buy real estate will do research online before anything else. For this reason having an effective web presence is essential for real estate agents and brokers. Several years ago it was costly to set up a professional-looking real estate website that could be maintained by the agent or an assistant, with no web development skills required. Today, however, there are much better options.
WordPress, the most popular (and free) content management system in the world, is a viable option for anyone in the real estate industry because of the quality themes that have been developed specifically for the industry. For less than $100 a high-quality theme can be purchased that will allow any agent or broker to maintain a website that is attractive and effective.
Here we’ll take a look at 15 of the best themes that have been created for the real estate industry.
wpCasa is a great option for having a feature-rich real estate website powered by WordPress. It’s actually a theme framework that can be used on it’s own, or you can select one of the available child themes if you want a different look. The theme framework uses somewhat of a minimal design style (although it still looks great), so it is a good starting place if you want to customize the appearance of theme.
wpCasa comes with several important features that make it extremely useful and effective. It uses a responsive design, so the site will look good on any device. You’ll also have control over the layout thanks to drag and drop widgets. The property editor makes it easy to add listings, and it even offers optional IDX/MLS integration. The advanced search makes it easier for visitors to find the right property.
ElegantEstate, from ElegantThemes, is a beautiful and functional real estate theme. It comes with 5 different color schemes, a powerful theme options panel, shortcodes, page templates, and more.
