Top 10 WordPress Themes for Real Estate Agents And Investors

hey guys what's up is to stuff from the aren't you tips your blog and in this video we're going to talk about ten of the best real estate WordPress themes on the market today and if you've got a website that's currently running on WordPress or if you're thinking about building a new website we're just going to cover some of the different features and benefits that these different themes have to offer and why you might want to consider some of these options for your website the ground okay so if you're a small business owner there's a fair chance you've got a website that may be running out of WordPress and WordPress is one of those options that's relatively easy to work with as far as website skill I wouldn't say it's necessarily the easiest thing if you're a beginner or if you have no website experience but if you know even a little bit about it WordPress is fairly easy to work with and when it comes to WordPress sites typically what people will do is they will go out and they will find either a free theme or they will go out and pay money for a theme the nice thing about a good wordpress theme is that if you have no coding experience if you have no idea what you're doing like me a theme will fill in a lot of those gaps and just give you a basic framework from what you can then continue building your website it'll sort of control like the look and the feel and the font and the color and just a layout a lot of different things that would otherwise take a lot of work to do if you didn't have this theme to sort of get you to that next step and as far as themes go there's lots and lots of options out there I want to come specifically to a real estate website it's usually a good idea to go ahead and just pay for a premium theme and usually the cost we're talking about is you know a hundred dollars or less than that so it's not crazy expensive considering what it can do for you if you have no idea where to find a good theme whether you're an investor or an agent or a property manager or a landlord or any of these things and I think you're going to find this video helpful because we're going to talk about ten options up there and they're definitely not the only options but these are ten solid options that can really take allow the guesswork out of your design process and as I went up searching for these themes I tried really hard to only pick ones that had very very high ratings and good reviews so I think no matter what choose from this list you're probably going to have some pretty good luck and a pretty good experience of it so let's dive into it now I'll show you what I found all right so the first one on this list is a theme from a company called studiopress it's called agent press Pro and I've actually worked with this theme for a number of years now as you can see here the price is 99.95 and the thing I like about this theme is that I think we call it a widget eyes layout so basically in WordPress to have these things called widgets and you can set them in different places on your website so for example this thing right here is a widget if you didn't want this showing on your website you could just remove it completely and not have it be there you didn't want this picture in the background you could remove that as well these things right here these are widgets so if you wanted to you can remove these and not have those there this is a widget this is a widget over here this is a widget as well so it's just a really nice layout if you want to pick and choose which one of these elements to have show on your website they've got this nice thing down here where you can give a little bit of information about yourself if you're an investor or an agent and you want to just explain more about your background and your qualifications you can do that nice little social media icons let's take a look at one of these property listings so we can see what those look like looks pretty nice I believe this one and for that matter most of these themes were going through have idx integration which means basically have a live feed to show certain properties from MLS listings if you wanted to or you could just skip that all together and just post properties on here that are off the MLS and you just have them privately on this website if you wanted to this theme has a few different color options if you want it to be green for example I use this theme on my buying website for land in Green County goes well with lands so that's the color that I've got going on mine looks kind of like this with a land picture in the background or you could do gold or you can do red it's a pretty nice option this is also a mobile responsive theme so it's going to look really good whether you're viewing it on a desktop computer on an iPad or on your mobile phone okay the next one on this list is called agent focus – pro and again this is also from studiopress and this one it's actually somewhat similar to agent pro just in terms of the look and feel but it has an L that make it look a little bit different for example the feature listings kind of give more prominence to the pictures so if you've got really good high resolution high quality picture those are going to look great here well so not that if you have like certain communities or groups of properties you're trying to advertise from what I can see this one just sort of looks a little bit more visually pleasing just in terms of bigger pictures and a greater focus on whatever images you have uploaded to take a look at what these listings look like here this is what the pages look like when you are highlighting a certain community for example or if you wanted to list just a specific property those listings look like this with this big beautiful image here up at the top so there's another thing to keep in mind if you don't have good high resolution images of your properties then this might not be the best thing for you because this sort of capitalizes on beautiful imagery so if you don't have that or if you can't bring that to the table probably going to do more of a disservice because it's highlighting the lack of pictures or the low quality of poor pictures that you might have this one also has a nice property map that integrates Google Maps so that's kind of cool and again this one is mobile responsive just like the agent pro theme it also has idx integration so you can list properties directly from the MLS in terms of customizing the theme you can add your own unique logo and the colors you can set to be pretty much whatever you want them to be so those are kind of the highlights of this theme all right I'm moving on to the next one this theme is called home Pro from template monster and this one's 75 bucks if we take a look at the demo this is kind of how it looks again this one is also mobile responsive as our pretty much all of these themes this is another theme that really makes a big deal out of whatever images you upload so if you've got really good high quality images say if they're professionally taken or if you just have images that are really high resolution those can be very very ideal for this type of website and again if you don't then this might not be the best thing for you because this kind of capitalizes on those big beautiful images assuming it them I've got a pretty nice layout if we take a look at one of these property listings we can see more about how those look pretty easy to navigate through here and take a look at the different pictures has a nice slider feature here that looks pretty nice you can get a good summary of each property and it's all laid out really nicely with good fonts we've got Google map integration here at the bottom as well with a nice big profile picture of the agent or investor or whoever the salesperson is phone numbers social media links all that stuff so I thought this one was just all-around good theme and again just to give an idea for what this thing looks like on a tablet this is kind of how its spaced out or like this if it's being viewed on a wide angle and I'm on a mobile phone it looks like this as well so pretty much any kind of device you're looking at it's going to look good so I thought this was a great theme could definitely be worth checking out we move on to the next screen here this one is from Steam Forest this one's called hometown and it looks like this it's kind of nice slider feature here at the top you can kind of take a look at different properties that way something I thought was really interesting about this particular theme is that you can actually use it for sort of like a collaborative real estate listing site so say if you are running a real estate agency with several different agents or several different investors or salespeople or even if you're running any kind of community where other people are going to want to participate in your website you can actually open this up so that a lot of people can add their own listings and then return for that say if you've got our website that has a lot of traffic or it's going to get a lot of traffic you can charge people to post their properties on your website or you can just let them do it for free it's kind of up to you but I just thought that was a really cool feature that I had never really seen in a theme like this before and so I got some really nice search functionality if you want to get really specific about the types of properties you're looking for again this is what the listing pages look like you can add video if you want get a good look at the images you can click on to see bigger versions of images see all the information down here that's all tabbed out nicely map information contact form pretty nice thing I was pretty impressive I haven't actually worked with this or tried to use it myself in any capacity so I don't know if it's like super complicated to work with on the again but just in terms of like the basic bare-bones infrastructure it gives you it looks like it can put out a pretty nice end product so definitely one worth checking out depending on what your needs are next one on the list this one is also from ThemeForest currently at 59 bucks this one actually has a bunch of different layouts you can use say for example if you want it to have one big beautiful image at the very top of the website you can totally do that with one of these options it's a pretty nice inviting layout where you can just click on this to see the listings right off the bat here's another example of what that could look like your more listings like this we check out what these listings look like this kind of gives you an idea and again given the huge placeholder that it gives us for these images you're going to want to make sure that you've got some good high resolution pictures because if they're low resolution or if they're not very good it's going to sort of bring down the look and feel of your whole website so definitely use this but be sure you've got some great pictures to feature because if not it could hurt more than a helps one thing I notice about this one is that in order to see all the information you can't have to scroll down a little ways so you have to do a little bit of searching but again it gives you a lot of options for including a lot of details assuming people are actually going to scroll down we want to take a look at some of the other layouts they have we've get this one as well this one has some smaller pictures up here with some search functionality right at the top or this one here just starts with a map at the very top so really lots of flexibility with this theme option if you want to get a high quality theme but you're not quite sure what the final look and feel should look like on your website this might be a good pick just because if you don't like how one version of the site looks you can always switch it to one of these other ones pretty easily so the WP residents theme could definitely be a one that's worth checking out moving on to the next one here this one is called dreamville again this one is also from ThemeForest and i thought this one was pretty cool because the idea behind this theme is only to be used to advertise a single property so say for example if you've got like a vacation rental home or a single property that's going to be advertised again and again on an ongoing basis this could be a really good fit for that and you can just get one URL they just named it after the address of your property or something like that and you can just put all the information about that property out here and it allows you to either create a full website like this with a navigation bar or if you want you can just have it be a one-page site so there's really nowhere to go other than simply scrolling down like this and it has all the information about the property we stretch this out a little bit it shows a little bit better pretty nice ideal fit for anybody who's trying to just put all the information about one property out there and it's just a really nice idea if you've got a single property that means to get a lot of air time and not get lost among dozens of other listings you might have on the market the next theme on this list is another one that it's also built to advertise a single property and this one's pretty sure if it starts off with his huge picture up at the top and you can check out other pictures by clicking here at the bottom just gives you a really nice look at the property and any features that it has has all the basic information right here click on this to schedule a showing you continue to scroll down you can just get all the basic details about it click on these pictures here it just brings us a larger version so we can see more information details we've got this thing where we can contact the agent that it brings us to this contact page and keep in mind you don't necessarily need to be an agent to use this so if you're like a landlord or a property manager or an investor and you just want somebody to contact you you can just skip the whole agent terminology and just put your own information here it's also got a nice place for a video tour if you want to add one of those to the website section here for frequently asked questions maps and videos just a lot of good information baked in here and if you've just got you know again one property that you want to draw a lot of attention to and give it the airtime it deserves this could be a great option to work with the next theme on the list here is called real places again from theme forest and this one has got a few different formats that you can show it and I'm not click on this one here and just show what this one looks like it's really good at showing you know property images that are interactive and these nice little design elements right next to him I thought that was pretty sharp this is another one of those examples where you know assuming you've got the high quality pictures and all the information here it's going to make you look very very credible like you're on your a-game like you spent tons of money to have a top-notch designer put this together for you got all the information you'd ever want here at the bottom and social media buttons all this other information nice search ability up here I just thought it was really nice thing let's check out one of these listings and you see what those look like looks pretty good go ahead and click on these and look at other pictures here like this if we click on these pictures it will show us larger versions of them got to be agents or the sales persons information over here on the right scroll down see more info about it got a video here Google Maps mortgage calculator pretty much all the basics you'd want and if you want to give your visitors the ability to download a PDF of information on the property you can do that as well pretty cool lots of nice features that you can use and I just thought it was a really nice option to be aware of another really sharp theme I came across was this one called Melania I think I'm pronouncing that right this one is also from template monster perfect rating all at 5 stars so pretty much everybody who's left to review so far has loved it we check out the demo we can kind of get an idea for what this thing looks like got some nice map stuff going on here and some good search functions nice big image header up here at the top where we can go ahead and click on the stuff and take a look at the listings see what these listings look like looks like a pretty clean design and laughs not terribly busy but it's got enough information to just show us what we need to know about the property I believe both this team and the home pro theme are built on what's called the cherry framework which I don't have a ton of experience with but it looks like it's a pretty good lab and it seems to work pretty well a few similarities here between this one and the home protein but all in all it's it's pretty unique in and of itself and has some really nice features that can be used if we go back here to the home page just keep scrolling down and kind of see how it shows these huge pictures of each property again if you've got good images of the properties you're trying to sell this could be a great way to showcase those and again this one is mobile responsive just like pretty much all these are so if we view them on different devices and can see how it looks good pretty much no matter what you're looking at this website on and if we check it out what it looks like for a mobile phone pretty easy to use everything is easy to read seems to work pretty well so if you want to check this one out for your real estate website I think it could be a pretty solid option for you and then the final one here in the list is called landmark from themeforest and this is one of the cheaper themes on this list at 39 bucks this theme has a five-star review which is really not that common to have a perfect score so I thought that was kind of notable we take a look at the demo here we can sort of get some ideas for how it can look and there's some different layout options available here this right here is one option again you're going to want to make sure you have a really nice high quality high resolution picture here to make your whole website look great and keep in mind if you don't necessarily have a good picture for one of your actual properties you could always check out a website like that has thousands of very high quality high-resolution open source images that you don't have to pay anything for so just keep that in mind if you're looking at one of these themes but you're not quite sure if you can find a great picture to use definitely check out there is just a ton of free value there in the pictures that they have available you want to check out some of these other template options check out the home map vertical kind of gives you an idea for how this looks there's no properties in here so it's not really showing us much of anything but overall it's just got a really nice layout it's pretty easy to follow looks a little bit busy here but provides a lot of helpful information for people who want to find out more about your properties they should be able to find everything here assuming you put the information in it also got a spot here for video Google Maps as well nice little mortgage calculator here at the side some good search functionality personal profile information so if you're just getting started if you're on a shoestring budget and you want the most theme that you can get for the least amount of money this could be a pretty good fit just given that it's one of the least expensive options here on the theme forest marketplace so there you have it those are the 10 best real estate WordPress names that I know about if
