30 of the Best Real Estate Themes for WordPress

Real estate is a very competitive industry and having an attractive, usable and up-to-date website can help agents to stand out and increase the exposure for their listings. In the past, managing a website could be a costly and complicated task for real estate agents. However, there are now many WordPress themes designed specifically for real estate that can make it much easier and affordable.

WordPress is a great platform for most real estate agents because it is simple to add new listings in most real estate themes, professional themes can be purchased for less than $100, and because having a search engine-friendly site is possible with WordPress.

While there are some free real estate themes available, the quality and functionality of most premium themes is far better and prices are very reasonable. In this post we’ll showcase 30 of the best professional real estate themes for WordPress.

    Another great theme – new, but created by the WP-Property plugin author.

  • Andy @ FirstFound, February 1, 2011

    Have you noticed how they’re all very samey? As if there’s a standard layout for real estate sites that people don’t want to deviate from.

    • Vandelay Website Design, February 1, 2011

      Andy,
      Yes, there is a lot of similarity. I think that can help to make the sites more intuitive for users, but I do agree that there could be a little more variety. One thing to consider, I think many of the theme designers have tried to keep them fairly basic so users can customize the designs if they choose, which would help to somewhat look a little different.

  • web design hull, February 1, 2011

    Wow, most of these are a big improvement on most of the real estate websites in our area.

  • Lime Web Design, February 3, 2011

    Theres a couple of nice ones on here. My favourites have to be the Bel Air and the Real Estate template. Nice work.

  • Breeze Design Studio, February 9, 2011

    The modern realtor one looks the best to me. I always try to use a template that is the most user friendly.

  • JR Farr, February 9, 2011

    Nice round up, definitely some quality items in this list! Also, thanks for including a few themes from MOJO-Themes.

  • Nepal Property Search, April 19, 2011

    Wow, most of these are a big improvement on most of the real estate websites in our area.

  • Colorado realtor, April 23, 2011

    As a real estate web marketer, virtual tour, and site developer….this post was right up my alley. I had the pleasure of being employed by the top producing real estate team in the US (2005) and I can tell you personally that we spent thousands of dollars every year on our sites design to reach out to our target audience.

    In real estate buyers are really all about virtual tours and the web before a call is even generated so having a great site with emphasis on UI is crucial. Even after having contact with a Realtor most correspondence is done on the web by sending virtual tour links and property listings to buyers. I still consult with Realtor’s on site design and UI and I feel that there will be a huge resurgence of real estate projects when the housing marketing comes around. Great Article!

  • Great collection. Thanks so much

  • Toronto Web Developer, June 9, 2011

    Woe, very imprssive and cool themes.

  • SiteBuilder, June 25, 2011

    I just did a similar post, then ran across this one. We have similar tastes in design themes. The fact is, wordpress themes are great way for realtors to get a professionally designed and highly functional website at a great price.

    I think the one thing that website owners often forget though, is how much work can go into configuring the website, adding content, keeping listings updated etc.

    Too often clients want a $35 template, then wonder why we are charging $300+ for the website setup, configuration, etc.

    As a designer and Internet marketer, I also recommend clients go the template route to build a cost effective website, then spend your money on marketing ;)

  • John Swanick, July 8, 2011

    There is several real estate themes above that are very interesting. Are any of these themes driven by a data base file that can be auto populated by the IDX? If so is there an IDX provider that can download the listing and picture information for a fee?

    • Vandelay Website Design, July 8, 2011

      Hi John,
      They are not our own themes, so I can’t answer questions about them. You would have to contact the theme designers/developers.

  • These are some great designs, but most aren’t capable of hooking up with an IDX so you can show listings on your website. Home buyers and sellers want to visit sites with MLS listing information. So, when you are searching for a theme, make sure you can have IDX information displayed on your site.

  • Sally Erickson, September 4, 2011

    That all important IDX link up is being address by a company I found when neither John, nor Todd, nor Vandelay did, called Diverse Solutions: http://www.diversesolutions.com. They have a WordPress plug-in! And it’d been around enough to get tested. Take a look you guys! I’m sold, anyway, and plan to use it for a new client.

  • Matt, September 18, 2011

    Thanks for the detailed post about property themes. This is the most comprehensive list I’ve come across so far and will no doubt be a big help for me when I’m ready to develop my next site. Thanks.

  • Brad Dalton, January 7, 2012

    I’ve used Studiopress, themeshift and Mojo Themes. Couldn’t find any premium skins for Thesis relating to real estate . Are there any you know of?

    • Vandelay Website Design, January 7, 2012

      Hi Brad,
      I’m not aware of any, but I also haven’t used Thesis in a few years so I’m not the best person to ask. You may want to check with someone at DIY themes.

  • Lia, January 24, 2012

    I’m interested in Real Agent.theme, a theme that contains many listing with various description and is separated into many categories. It really match with my need, I must buy it.

  • Dawson Barber, April 30, 2012

    Interested in anyone’s thoughts on this real estate brokerage website: http://landmarkrealty.ca

    It wasn’t designed with a realtor WordPress theme, but, rather, with a WordPress premium theme – in this case Catalyst, using the Dynamik child theme.

    Still working on some glitches before the hard launch, so any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers

  • Dawson Barber, April 30, 2012

    Sorry, I should have added that we’re interested in feedback for two reasons:

    - obviously we want to make the site better
    - we’re thinking about creating a child theme for Catalyst based on this design, as we’ve had a number of people inquire about that

    Thanks

  • Kevin, May 7, 2012

    Are these themes easy to intergrate into the IDX for Multiple listing service, if I am saying that right. The MLS seems to be a bit of a mystery to me but agents can acces it for their websites. I will still do some research but any input is welcome.

    • Steven Snell, May 7, 2012

      Kevin,
      That would vary from one template to the next, so you would have to check with each seller.

  • Sinisa, May 11, 2012

    Thank you for your list …Saved my time and help me decide..

  • Michael Soriano, August 19, 2012

    I have just finished building my own real estate theme called realtor: http://fearlessflyer.com/themes/realtor/ . I hope that you add to this awesome collection. Realtor is FREE for a limited time!

  • Myanmar Property Market, August 28, 2012

    Thanks Michael. I think i’m going to try out your theme :)

  • Domus Venari, November 28, 2012

    Does any one know if any of the above themes are compatible with WP Property? Really struggling to find a theme that works with their plugin. Thanks in advance.

    • Steven Snell, November 28, 2012

      Hi Domus,
      Sorry, I’m not familiar with that plugin. You may want to contact the developer of the plugin to ask about theme compatibility.

  • Moses, January 2, 2013

    Hi,

    I am looking at the possibility to purchase one of the themes,

    Gorilla for USD 79.95. .. However, have some questions. Can I use the theme on my regional websites/ can I port copy from one site to other other.

    Will it cost me one time, to use the theme for the various websites I will build for real estates.

    Would appreciate a fast response.

    Also, there is little explained in terms of the SEO friendliness of the themes.

    • Steven Snell, January 3, 2013

      Moses,
      If you have questions about a theme from Gorilla you would need to direct your questions to them.

  • Kalifiye İnsan Kaynakları, February 12, 2013

    I’m interested in Real Agent.theme, a theme that contains many listing with various description and is separated into many categories. It really match with my need, I must buy it.

  • Hold Realty, February 14, 2013

    These are all great themes to work with, CANVAS is another theme that can be totally customized and built upon. The website for the free real estate agent HoldRealty.com realtor was created using this theme for It is important to have a quick load time as well, we have found some of the above increase the site load time. The IDX plugin as noted in the above comment integrate very well to most all themes as shown above. Woo has some great deals that are less expensive than the estate theme shown above.

  • khris ponty, February 28, 2013

    Wiil this work for non american based agents, will I need a site builder to configure it or I can do it myself? Thanks.

    • Steven Snell, February 28, 2013

      Khris,
      You would have to contact the developer of whichever theme you want to use with specific questions about that theme.

  • sonny, April 4, 2013

    Please forget about gorrila theme, they are one of the wosrt in the market, it never work like it promise and VERY BAD CODE (means is not compatible with most plugin).

    I bought 6 of it and none of it work, every theme must have some tiny bug ….
