The Best WordPress Real Estate Themes

Most people who are looking to buy real estate will do research online before anything else. For this reason having an effective web presence is essential for real estate agents and brokers. Several years ago it was costly to set up a professional-looking real estate website that could be maintained by the agent or an assistant, with no web development skills required. Today, however, there are much better options.

WordPress, the most popular (and free) content management system in the world, is a viable option for anyone in the real estate industry because of the quality themes that have been developed specifically for the industry. For less than $100 a high-quality theme can be purchased that will allow any agent or broker to maintain a website that is attractive and effective.

Here we’ll take a look at 15 of the best themes that have been created for the real estate industry.

wpCasa (€59)

wpCasa is a great option for having a feature-rich real estate website powered by WordPress. It’s actually a theme framework that can be used on it’s own, or you can select one of the available child themes if you want a different look. The theme framework uses somewhat of a minimal design style (although it still looks great), so it is a good starting place if you want to customize the appearance of theme.

wpCasa comes with several important features that make it extremely useful and effective. It uses a responsive design, so the site will look good on any device. You’ll also have control over the layout thanks to drag and drop widgets. The property editor makes it easy to add listings, and it even offers optional IDX/MLS integration. The advanced search makes it easier for visitors to find the right property.


ElegantEstate ($39)

ElegantEstate, from ElegantThemes, is a beautiful and functional real estate theme. It comes with 5 different color schemes, a powerful theme options panel, shortcodes, page templates, and more. The listed price is for membership to ElegantThemes, not just for this theme, so you would get access to all of their themes (more than 70) for this price.


HomeQuest ($99)

HomeQuest is a beautifully-designed theme from ThemeFuse. It features a powerful search and filter module to help visitors find the perfect property. It also comes with a unique one-click auto install to make it easier and faster to set up the site.


AgentPress ($99.95)

AgentPress has been one of the most popular real estate themes for quite some time. It is designed and developed by StudioPress and uses their popular Genesis theme framework. AgentPress will give any real estate agent a professional-looking site that is easy to manage. The theme includes features like 5 color schemes, 6 layout options, custom header, custom background, and more.

    Nice collection :-)

  • M. Menius, June 27, 2013

    Can anyone recommend and well-made, reliable theme that allows paying subscribers to post their own listings? i.e. a payment interface that takes the customer through payment and then uploading their listings.?

  • Paulo Canabarro, June 6, 2013

    Nice selection Steve, the amount of real estate wordpress themes seem to be growing a lot, I also like this one from slocum studio – Modern Real Estate

  • Carl, May 22, 2013

    I was looking to find free app theme for real estate website, but I guess there are none, well I might develop one on my own, but I think it will be much easier to buy some of these premium themes.

    • Steven Snell, May 22, 2013

      I’m not aware of any free real estate themes that can come close to matching the quality of the best premium themes. I think there are so many specific features needed by a real estate site that it simply takes a lot of time for a developer to create a good real estate theme.

    You can create your personal wpCasa test site on to see how things work on the back end.

  • steve, March 16, 2013

    does anyone know where i can see some of these working. looking to build a new site, but wanted to have a decent back end as i is the input of properties that always takes the longest. a drag and drop facility would be great for pics

    • Steven Snell, March 18, 2013

      You may want to try contacting the developers/sellers of the themes. They could probably give you links to a few real world examples. You can see working demos of any of the themes by following the links in the post and then you should see a demo link.

    I already found gridly, and figured out how to build up a portfolio site out of it, I think it would also be nice for this section. Chris

    This collection is looking fabulous, i like the first theme “casanova” so much and i think this is very good theme for any real state portal.

  • Steven Snell, February 5, 2013

    Thanks for sharing your experience with wpCasa. It seems to be a great theme, so it is good to hear that the support is also good.

  • Saman, February 5, 2013

    I work now for about a year with wpCasa and won’t miss it again. It has everything I need for making websites for my real estate agents and is pretty modular. In case I need a special feature they also offer a pretty fast customization service which builds those little nifty things.

    And one of the most important parts is the outstanding support, which I’ve missed on other places. Had a hard time with themes from various authors at themeforest but that is another story.

    Btw: Nice collection, keep up the great work
