And you always have the option open to extend your real estate portal to other niche in future.

This add-on helps you create a Real Estate portal on top of our Directory theme. Once activated, it adds everything necessary to run a Real Estate portal on your site. A new “Property” post type, custom widgets, property search, property filter, property submission form etc.
Customizable property search
This add-on comes with a customizable, pre-built “property search” widget with necessary search fields. Any custom field you create inside Directory (for the Property post type) can also be added to the homepage search widget.
Instant property filter
Not only custom search but AJAX property filters are also available on all property list, property search results & property category pages. This will help your visitors narrowing down the results to very quickly to property of exact kind they are looking for. The Real Estate add-on comes with built-in filters such as Price, Bedrooms, Bathrooms, Property Status, Property Type and more.
Filtering functionality can be extended with the List Filter add-on which allows custom fields to be included as filters inside the widget.
Along with the ability to manage properties created on your site, with the Real Estate add-on you will also be able to showcase IDX/MLS properties. This functionality is enabled using the dsIDXpress plugin.

Manage property status
Property statuses are essentially tags displayed within the property thumbnails on homepage and category pages. You can use these statuses to mark properties with tags such as “Hot”, “On Sale”, “Reduced price” etc. These tags also work as filters for category and search pages. The plugin comes with several useful pre-set tags but you can also add new ones. Each tag can be customized with a unique name and color.
