I have a couple friends who are real estate agents that know I’m crazy about creating websites.  After one friend requested my services to create a real estate website for him, many others followed, he started to spread the word among his real estate buddies and voila, I was creating real estate websites for all his agent friends and their friends.  After creating so many real estate websites, I wanted to share with you my experience in picking the best template that will suit your needs.  It’s a little hard to keep the look different, but since Wordpress is flexible in the widgets, color designs, and there are many different premium Wordpress real estate templates out there, I’ve managed to keep each site a little unique from the last.   I’ve invested a lot of time to look for well designed, flexible, well coded, extensive backend, clean and elegant real estate templates.  I’ve posted a couple templates in the past to create sites like Craigslist, Kijiji, or even MLS.com.  Here is one of the many templates  that I used in the past to create real estate websites.

Gorilla Themes – Residence Real Estate Wordpress template has a dynamic framework allowing you to customize your site easily to your market needs.  Create new pages easily with pre-made page templates to display properties that you have for sale, properties for sale, properties for lease, or anything you desire.  Create a real estate blog page to discuss about popular and upcoming condos, the rise of the real estate market, discuss important changes in real estate laws, house builder launch dates, or important new condo or new house pre launch reminders.  With a real estate blog, you can keep your users informed of the latest real estate News in your area.  This Residence Real Estate template is compatible for multiple agents.  So you can create a website for your brokerage and list all your real estate agents and list properties just like MLS.com.  Each agent is able to maintain their own set of properties via the wordpress administrator panel.

In the backend, real estate agents can create their own property listings.  The Residence Real Estate theme has Google maps integrated, the benefit of this feature is that it automatically shows the exact location of your property with Google street maps view and adds it to your property listing.  You can upload photos in bulk and use the native image editor now available with WordPress 3.0.

Another neat feature is that you can have users submit their own listing to create a like Craigslist or a site like Kijiji.  To enable this feature you need to download another plugin called GravityForms.  This is a very advanced plugin for forms enabling you to create custom fields for your real estate needs, enable notifications, validations, view form property submissions for approval, and more.  This plugin is not necessary to create a general website to list your real estate properties or for a real estate brokerage.  You can download this plugin if you want to transform your site into something like a Classifieds site to allow the public to submit their own property listings for sale or for rent.
