Houzes is a premium WordPress theme for any type of property based businesses. From real estate to estate agents, this theme is perfectly designed for this niche.
It’s translated no fewer than 20 languages making it ideal for those looking to promote their website worldwide. Take advantage of a free CDN (Content Delivery Network) and you’ve got yourself a site that’s not only fast in all locations, but one that’s in the users own language.
The theme uses the popular Elementor plugin for its page builder but the developers have made some custom drag and drop elements specifically designed for this theme. The custom elements include an advanced search facility, properties and partners, property carousels, grids and maps, agents and much more.
Houzes theme comes with a demo importer as you would expect with 16 different demos ready to import.
It’s GDPR compliant which is a must for those collecting sensitive data and Google maps optimised.
Within the theme panel options, you’ll find over 30 different sections making it highly customisable. For example, the advanced search facility allows your customers to filter searches by keyword, location, radius which is visual as well as text-based, bedrooms, bathrooms, types of properties, price range and must include features which can be added in separately via the field builder. I.e. garden or garage or anything else you see fit.
It’s a really advanced search function for those creating this type of website and is no doubt a must to be competitive in this area.
One of the nice aspects of the search on the front end is the autocomplete search suggestions similar to what you would see in Google.
The management system allows you to create a marketplace that agencies or agents can upload to, and we particularly like the fact it has a live messages system built in directly.
Other nice features like 360 degree virtual tours are also supported, making your property pages really stand out compared to most real estate websites. You’ll also find the usual suspects you would expect to find such as floor plans and energy classes.
This premium theme has 8 different property page layouts, allowing you to choose and combine different elements to create a truly unique layout. There are also 9 listing page templates for you to choose from.
The navigation bar has 8 different headers to choose from, each of which is easily customisable.
Houzes provides integration with some popular plugins which you may want to add on. These include Visual Composer, Slider Revolution (Both are added for free with the theme), WPML, MailChimp, iHomefinder, PayPal, Stripe and more.
All themes these days (premium one anyway) are responsive, but this theme looks amazing on mobile as it’s been customised to have certain elements showing on mobile such as the ability for the user to favourite a property, or contact an agent directly.
There are few property style WordPress themes out there, but this one has really gone above and beyond when they could have got away with not doing so. It’s defiantly one worth checking out if your next project is going to be in this area!
