The property market is one of the many industries that has learned to fully utilize the internet. Most of us know research and remotely view a property long before we approach a realtor and that shows no sign of changing anytime soon.
That means, as a realtor you need to satisfy that need with a great looking website.
That’s what this article is all about. We have collected and curated this list of what we think are the best WordPress real estate themes available in 2021.
Each theme is attractive, has built-in features useful for the property market, is fully responsive and represents great value.
By the end of this page, you will have a good idea of exactly what is out there for realtors. You may even have found the next theme for your own real estate website!
If you’re launching a new venture, building your own website has never been easier. The development of WordPress and its various themes has continued apace and now delivers the power to create with minimal effort.
If you’re building your first real estate website, you will need a few things before you can launch.
You will need:
- Domain and hosting
- WordPress real estate theme
- WordPress plugins
A domain name is the ‘www.websitename.com’ you type into a URL. Hosting is space you rent on a web server so the world can see your website.
A good domain name should reflect your business name, the industry or both and can be bought for not a lot of money from your web host.
Hello! My name is Sujay and I’m CEO of Astra.
We’re on a mission to help small businesses grow online with affordable software products and the education you need to succeed.
WordPress is a CMS, a Content Management System. It provides the means for your website to work. It uses a database and a framework to provide the means for you to build pages, add blog posts and expand with themes and plugins.
WordPress is free and open source. You can download it directly from WordPress.org or install it using your web host’s app installers.
A WordPress theme is a graphical overlay designed to make WordPress look good. The basic framework has some decent themes but you’re going to want to improve on that. This is what this article is all about.
WordPress themes install into the CMS and offer a chance to be unique, stand out from the crowd or match your brand. Sometimes a theme will do all three!
If you want your website to have specific features not included with the core WordPress CMS, you can add them with a plugin. These install into WordPress like a theme and can be integrated into your website to provide a specific feature or set of features.
Realtors can often benefit from plugins that offer advanced search, property filtering, email outreach and other features. If the WordPress real estate theme doesn’t include those things, a plugin can add them.
There are thousands of WordPress themes out there right now so it can be difficult to identify a standout theme you actually want to use.
That’s where we come in.
This is what we think are the very best WordPress real estate themes available right now.
Astra is a very flexible WordPress theme with some top class designs to suit the widest range of industries. We designed Astra to combine ease of use with professional designs to deliver what we consider the ultimate WordPress theme.
Astra is easy to use thanks to its use of drag and drop page builders and superb documentation. We spend as much time ensuring all our themes are easy to use and accessible as we do making sure they look amazing and work flawlessly!
Astra is fully responsive, works with Elementor, Brizy, Gutenberg and other page builders, works with WooCommerce and most WordPress plugins and is one of the easiest themes to work with.
In the context of real estate, we think our Real Estate theme delivers everything you need. An attractive design, standout listing elements, a contact form and everything you’ll need to launch a website. All wrapped up in a fast-loading, reliable package.
Highlights of Astra include:

Divi doesn’t have property filters but does have search and a property listings section. There are also specific listing pages, an attractive contact form, blog and supporting pages. Everything you need to build your own real estate website.
Like Astra, Divi uses a drag and drop page builder called Divi Builder to help you build your website. Pages will be fully responsive, work with most WordPress plugins and provide any other features you might need.
Features of Divi include:

Ultra is not a dedicated WordPress real estate theme. It’s a multipurpose theme that can be transformed into anything you like. It takes more work than an industry-specific theme but can be well worth the effort. We think Ultra is worth that effort.
Ultra has a selection of ready-made templates covering a few industries and any of them could be made to fit real estate. We think Construction is a good option. It’s colourful, has some very clear features boxes to highlight property, add a contact form and any supplementary information you might want to add.
A multipurpose WordPress theme will require some customization to make it fit but Ultra comes with the tools you’ll need to make it your own.
Highlights of Ultra include:
- Multipurpose theme that works well
- Attractive templates that cover most tastes
- Easy to use with flexibility built-in
- Compatible with most WordPress plugins
Presence is a minimal real estate WordPress theme that doesn’t make the same impact as some but delivers in other areas. It’s another theme with multiple demo websites you can use, one of which is real estate.
The theme has a lot of white space that makes the large image slider really stand out. The navigation includes property listings and there is a filter underneath the slider for visitors to refine their search.
The actual listings use the same formula, white space, strong images and content to help attract interest. As an added bonus, Presence supports IDX listings.
Highlights of Presence include:
- Minimal design ideal for certain target markets
- Attractive visuals that work well
- Supports IDX listings
- Easy to use
5. Altitude Pro
Altitude Pro is another multipurpose theme that could easily be transformed into a real estate website. We selected this theme because it has a distinct character and stands out for being original and a little different from the norm while also being able to deliver the features required for a property website.
The Altitude Pro demo is set out as a standard business website with atmospheric header image, stark white modern fonts and contrasting light and dark elements. You can easily see where you could add property listings, area information, agent information and anything else you need.
You would have to add other features such as search, maps and filtering but there is always a plugin for that.
Highlights of Altitude Pro include:
- Well-designed multipurpose theme
- Attractive core design that can be customized easily
- Loads quickly
- Supports WordPress plugins to add real estate elements
EstateEngine is a very composed WordPress real estate theme that also uses a large map as its central feature. This template hides the filter in a slider box, which is a nice touch.
There is a great balance to the pages in this theme. Good use of white space, colour and interest added by images, simple property listings with brief summary and a more detailed page for every property.
We think those individual property pages are where this template shines. They are clear, compelling and contain an image slider to showcase the home. A neat sidebar showing similar properties should help cross-selling too. It’s a very good real estate theme!
Highlights of EstateEngine include:
- Central map option is very effective
- The slider box hiding search and filter works well
- Page design is top class
- Property pages are superb
Residence is another of the purpose-built WordPress real estate themes that we think you should try. It uses a classic design that could work for an older or wealthier demographic with a simple layout, grey background and simple colours.

Residence works with IDX if you use the dsIDXPress plugin. It also handles different currencies, Google Maps, has a search and filter option and most features a property website will need.

- Classic design cues ideal for certain markets
- Unfussy colours and layout

Summary of Our List of Real Estate WordPress Themes
Creating this list of WordPress real estate themes was tough. Not through lack of choice, but the opposite. There are so many themes out there covering the property niche that we had our work cut out selecting just these few!
We think the list represents some of the best WordPress real estate themes out there. We did include a couple of multipurpose themes here for a little variety but only those we thought would make superb property websites.
Which Real Estate Theme Should You Choose?
Out of all of the WordPress real estate themes in this list, which ones stand out?
Astra of course, thanks to the quality of the design and build and the purpose-built real estate theme. Astra makes it so easy to build and deploy a website that literally anyone can do it. The fact that it also includes common requirements for real estate such as listings and search makes it all the more compelling.
AgentPress Pro is a great option because it’s almost ready to go out of the box. It is more expensive than some but could be installed, populated with your own content and properties and be ready to go immediately.
EstateEngine is also worthy of mentioning. Not necessarily for its main page but for the individual property pages. We think they are one of the best examples of property descriptions here!
We think those three stand out for all the right reasons. We also think that if you use any of these WordPress real estate themes, you won’t go far wrong!
