Thanks to StudioPress for developing special widget for real estate niche.

This genesis real estate child theme and plugin helps you to reach your goal to build trust, getting customers and earning good income.

Real Estate Features : Genesis Theme
Manage Listings : It’s really easy to add properties on website with custom listing post type, found on the back-end area. The AgentPress Pro listing pot type screen will show you simple editor screen like blog posts. But, you will find custom fields on the bottom of the editor. Hence, you can easily add any property by filling up Taxonomies and Terms.
Besides that, it also permits you to assign featured image to display listing nicely on homepage and listing page. The theme gives you freedom to assign many information like Address, Price, Area (Square Feet), Basement, Bedrooms/Bathrooms and also let’s you embed map as well as video. Once you fill out all details then user can view property location map, price, and everything in nice form style design.
Property dealers can also display many photos with listings so clients can view property in better way. If you use “jQuery Lightbox For Native Galleries” plugin then user can view all property photos in nice gallery, without leaving current screen.
Listing Taxonomies and Terms : This is the first task that you need to perform before starting listing process. This section helps you to insert custom taxonomies and view them all just like tags and categories with WordPress CMS. After that, you can create “Terms” for each taxonomy, for e.g. Bedroom taxonomy can have terms like 3 bedrooms, 4 bedrooms etc. Then you can choose relevant terms and taxonomy from the listing screen.
The property page shows agent contact form on the bottom so user can easily get in touch with agent. The right sidebar can get more property page-views if you add search widget like demo. Related properties list is also shown below all listings which is another way to suggest more listing to the clients.
Customization : The look and design is also important part as it can affect reading and browsing experience. This genesis child theme provides you with custom theme options where you have option to use unique header background, homepage background, and more. The theme also provides 4 colors, 6 layouts, and custom page templates. In-short, creating real estate site doesn’t need coding work or extra budget to hire developer.
Homepage and More Details : AgentPress
Widget Homepage : The homepage is totally widgetized so you will be having lots of possibilities to create unique real estate site. If you check out demo, then it has featured homepage that shows custom background and welcome text in top featured area. Along with that, you will see a property search panel with different options. The search box shows those search terms which you select from widget options list.
This is good way to invite visitors to find dream properties by providing preference, budget and other details. If you have thousands of properties on your site then people can’t view them all and might leave your site. But, a search box can help buyers to provide details and view only relevant listings on the screen. The search widget module will save time and increase leads.
There is one more widget that is called “Featured Property Listings” which shows properties on homepage. This widget is also helpful to display top or recent properties to homepage visitors. The homepage is made up of many widget areas that includes Featured, Top Top, Home Middle (1,2,3), and Home Bottom. You will be getting freedom to show a slider, calls to action, contacts, properties, agent details or anything over there.
The AgentPress Pro WordPress theme homepage shows just a regular demo that fits to most of the real estate websites. But, you can make changes for homepage, header, footer and other elements using customizer options.
Final Words : Conclusion
I just love the fast page load speed which saves time and offer SEO benefits. If you browse through listings and pages then you will find useful widget on sidebar like Search, Recent posts, Testimonials etc. The footer left side shares one 3rd area to display any widget like author box, business intro or anything. The “Footer 2” is right widget area that shows all selected widgets using two-thirds of footer area. Mostly, footer works to share social links, contact details, and to increase email subscribers.
This single theme can share your details, experience, past client’s testimonials, professional experience and much more. If has blog page so you can share real estate knowledge with clients and get in touch with them when they need your services. I suggest all property dealers, agents and brokers to use StudioPress genesis theme to create business website.
