25 High Quality Real Estate WordPress Themes
Real estate is a wealthy industry with some heavy competition. Recently with the downturn of the economy not many people are buying new homes. The current homes are loosing value and the renting market is booming. People think that renting is cheaper than buying, and I can understand their thought process. Without arguing what’s right or wrong, we can all agree that it’s a great time to start your real estate based website. Remeber you do not have to only provide homes for sale. Since the housing market is down right now, you can offer multiple amount of listings like:
- New Home
- Office Space
- Apartment for rent
- Home for sale
Currently WordPress is one of the best platforms for most real estate agents. It’s easy functionality allows you to simply manage and update the new listings. A high quality theme can be purchased for less than $100. Take a second and realize how crazy this sounds. I guaranteed that if you ask a web designer how much they charged to designed a real estate listing website in the late 90′s or early 2000′s your jaw will drop. The prices for complex/multi-functional websites were ridiculous back then. Fast forward into present day and you will see beautiful, option rich, and complex WordPress themes that cost less than your phone bill.
So how in the world does all of this information play out into creating your very own real estate listing website? Easy, while the markets are slow you have the perfect opportunity to start updating the website and wait for economical recovery. You could easily get a piece of the action by creating a beautiful WordPress website and charge agents, companies, friends and even family to add their property postings to your website.
Below we have listed high quality professional themes. There is no point for you to be stingy (do not mean to hurt your feelings, I’m a stingy person myself) and select a free real estate theme, unless it provides the same amount of options as premium themes. Keep in mind that if you are trying to create a business out of this, it’s very worth to spend a little money on a beautiful theme. Today we have gather an enormous amount of valuable WordPress themes to help you accomplish your goal. While browsing remember to look for important features like Advanced Search Options, Price, Images and Videos, Google Maps, Custom Taxonomies for Listings, Easy Navigation and much more. Get your moneys worth and find the right fit!
A little side note for those who already have a real estate website and are looking to switch. One thing to keep in mind is that all of your current listing might not be able to successfully transfer over to the new theme. If your listings are posts, then yes everything will transfer over smoothly(but will obviously not look exactly the same). However if the listings are inserted customly through a special menu, then I would advice you to be careful. So unless you want to risk starting over I would think twice before switching themes.
