1. WordPress IDX
When building a real estate website, it’s essential to add MLS listings so you can attract and engage visitors, and also have functionality for capturing visitors’ contact information so you can them into new clients. This is where WordPress IDX comes in. You can install the plugin from your WordPress dashboard, but a premium plan is required for WordPress IDX to function (though they offer an awesome free trial!).
With WordPress IDX Basic, you’ll be able to add MLS listing search widgets and indexable city/neighborhood pages to your website. Individual listing pages will seamlessly take on your theme’s styling, and include all important MLS information (pricing, beds/baths, square footage, description, etc) along with photo slideshows, a 3D aerial view of the home, Google Maps and Street View and even social sharing functionality. But where you can really get fancy is with a Pro plan. This includes advanced property search tools to aid buyers, plus features to help you capture visitors as leads, like saved searches and forced website registration.
WordPress IDX is both mobile and SEO-friendly—it will delight visitors who are using mobile devices, and has features that will help your website attract more free traffic from search engines (including an XML sitemap and indexable listing, city, and community pages that will always display up-to-date information).
2. Real Estate Manager Pro
Don’t want to use the MLS? No problem – that’s what Real Estate Manager Pro is for. With this plugin you can create custom property listings on your site. Choose from 7+ ready to use listing styles, or build your own with a page builder like Elementor or WPBakery. This is a great option for boutique agencies or individual agent sites since you have so much control over your listings!
Once you’ve added your properties, make it easy for visitors to find the right one for them with included options for advanced searches
