Ricardo Bueno is back with another great post from the Diverse Solutions blog.
The truth is, you can take almost any generic WordPress theme and design a good looking real estate blog with it. What you need to identify is, does this theme contain all of the features that I require in a functioning real estate website? Or do I have to download a series of plugins and customize it to make it work the way that I want it to?
So here’s where I would start… Take a look at a series of real estate websites from your competitors and elsewhere, then ask yourself:
- What do you like?
- What don’t you like?
- What do you wish worked better?
…from there, you can start to shop around for a suitable real estate theme that has everything you need it to do.
What Do You Want a Real Estate Website To Do?
- Add an IDX Quick Search: You can add the Diverse Solutions IDX Plugin to just about any WordPress theme. It works right out of the box and it inherits it’s layout design from your theme’s design. If you’re not ready to purchase an IDX solution however, there’s a few WordPress themes that have functionality built-in to add your own listings manually. It’s labor intensive, sure, but it works.
