The Best Real Estate WordPress Themes For Agent Websites

The Best Real Estate WordPress Themes For Agent Websites

My name is Lori Ballen “Las Vegas Lori” and I’ve been building my websites on WordPress for a while now. WordPress is by far my favorite platform. I love how I was able to grow my real estate website to a top spot on the search engines for thousands of long-tail Keywords.

If you want me to connect you with a WordPress Designer or have specific questions, there’s a contact form below.

If you are going to build your real estate website on WordPress or would like to give your website a new look, this article is for you. You can build it yourself and have it hosted on a website like Bluehost, Hostgator, flywheel, WPengine or GoDaddy. Or you can have a web developer put it all together for you.

You can learn how to build your website, and how to blog and use IDX at BallenAcademy.com and if you need a company to help put it all together, my brothers over at Ballen Brands would love to work with you.

WordPress is a content management system. Themes and PlugIns allow WordPress to grow. Think about this way: Themes change the look and feel and PlugIns add functionality.

If you are just getting started, and like the StudioPress theme, you can actually get your WordPress started inside WPengine and get your framework and theme for free!

Your hosting starts around $30 per month and you can increase your bandwidth and resources as you go.

What is a Theme?

A theme is a design you lay over your content management system (your website). It changes the font, colors, sidebars, headers, footers, and more. A theme can also add functionality.

Once you choose your theme, you can add PlugIns for security, analytics, forms and so forth. Be careful not to go overboard. They can kill site speed.

IDX Real Estate Listings

You’ll also want a great IDX to add to your WordPress Real Estate Agent Website. I chose IDX Broker. I don’t use the PlugIn though. I build out the widgets and add them to my website.

I have a lot more on this in BallenAcademy.com. I wanted an IDX that gave me the IP address for lead lookup and had easy customization and registration items. That’s why I choose IDX Broker.

I’ve used a few of the real estate WordPress themes, but not all. This list will give you theme ideas and links to explore them.

While some themes are free, others have a low cost. You can change your theme any time but will need to manually adjust some of the theme changes when you do.

How to Install a Theme

  1. Choose your Website Host [WPengine, GoDaddy, Bluehost, FlyWheel, HostGator]
  2. Register your Domain Name
  3. SetUp WordPress [Through your Host]
  4. Find your Desired Theme and download Zip File
  5. In WordPress, find Appearance, Themes, and Upload and Unpack Theme
  6. Begin customizing

Some of these themes will require the framework first. Many themes have multiple layers. For example, Genesis is the framework and StudioPress has the themes. There will be a library of themes specific to the Genesis framework. You can get the framework and a theme together for one low price, many times under $100. Below, you’ll see the theme, the framework, and the theme creator.
