Suggestion: when running contests make it clearer to know how many entries are still available.

By the way, how many entries are left for HTML templates so far?

There is so much talent here at Evanto, you guys rocks. Now that been said, I must said as a buyer and working directly with Real Estate. Many of the themes / HTML templates don’t cover the actual needs of a Real Estate website. While slide shows, big numbers, stars, etc makes the theme / template look great. The core function and principal mindset of people landing on a Real Estate site is to search.

For example: http://themeforest.net/item/openhouse-real-estate-automotiv-car-dealership/full_screen_preview/104662

Awesome theme, but the search is not prominent.

Another good example: http://themeforest.net/item/wp-pro-real-estate/full_screen_preview/23761

No visual form, graphics take away from the actual function.

Another example: http://themeforest.net/item/real-estate-responsive-html-theme/full_screen_preview/4490639

Great colors and concept, lacks search.

This one I am actual buyer: http://themeforest.net/item/quick-start-real-estate-html/full_screen_preview/80563

Search is not as prominent, but I loved the colors.

Why I tell this? Because I’m currently looking to purchase a new template for RE and that’s what I have notice. Please don’t take my words in the wrong way. Is my humble opinion :D

And if any one feels like they want to try something else feel free to ask me. I will be the first buyer for theme. :D

Thank you very much for this info!

What do you think about this 2 real estate templates? http://themeforest.net/item/dot-real-estate-html5-css3-template/full_screen_preview/4246631 http://themeforest.net/item/lux-huge-and-unique-real-estate-html/full_screen_preview/3841810 We focused on an advanced search form, different home pages, home with forms at the slider, forms with a lot of options. We also take care a lot about the single page property, with:
  • Photo gallery
  • Broker, house agent image
  • Property maps
  • Property Video Tour
  • ETC.

Please let us know what else is important in a real estate website. We love to design that kind of templates!

This are two great templates. Lux I can see a high end agent using this theme where he caters the content. While it has search functionality is not prominent. When I said that what I mean is that people looking for rent and the people looking to purchase have different mind set but the only thing in common is they have a basic idea of what they are looking for and want the system to give them those choices otherwise they are out into next site. Now if you make the search as prominent maybe interactive as the sell portion … GOLD!

Now DOT has a more appealing aspect to cater to a more generic set of people, that is why you can see that DOT has almost 50% of the sales in just a month compared to LUX. First thing I would do is make the search more prominent over the slide.

I don’t know if I can post link but have a look at: rent(.)com apartments(.)com remax(.)com realtor(.)com

What all they have in common? The search.

They are great themes, I love the colors of DOT. Blue, gray, green, is the colors that triggers searches in Real Estate. And DOT is very clean.
