Finally a Real Estate WordPress Theme with Full Featured Listing Capabilities A new WordPress Theme, Realty One— recently developed by Toms Skyline Design— is the only WordPress enabled theme and plugin combination that will work out of the box for Realtors, Manufactured Home Dealers, Real Estate Investors; … and with minor modification for Property Managers and Landlords with multiple properties.
Development started using WordPress 2.9.2. Prior to completing the theme, WordPress came out with WP 3 and WP3+. Realty One has not been tested on WP 3+.The Realty One Theme is customizable and is Post Thumbnail enabled. This makes adding thumbnails to pages and posts much easier … a new WP function that arrived with WP 2.9.1+. Most themes I have seen are not post thumbnail enabled; however, they should be. This theme also sports two different feature sliders and a featured property 3D rotator.
Realty One utilizes a couple of back end admin listings pages; with, literally hundreds of options. Adding photos to your listings is a breeze; and all the thumbnails, and various sizes of images are created for you. All you do is upload the large size images you want displayed and the rest of the work is done for you. As a site owner or a site visitor, you will appreciate the Google Maps on the main listings pages and each individual listing pages, too. You can even search the listings by various criteria.
Using the Realty One Theme including all the plugins as initially built, allows the site owner to allow visitors full access to the site, require registration for portions of the site, or require registration for the entire site. Additionally, if the site owner maintains a marketing list, the Realty One Theme is already configured to integrate with a Mailing List application; including a signup page. NOTE: The mailing list application configured with Realty One, is very robust and managed from a separate admin panel.There were even a couple dozen video tutorials created to help the site owner familiarize themselves with all the site features so they are able to maximize all the benefits to this site and get the most value out of it. Here is the first video tutorial in the series. (NOTE: if you are an experienced WordPress user, this tutorial will seem very rudimentary. However, if you have never used WordPress, it will be much more helpful for you.)
