Just got my theme approved into the WordPress Real Estate Categoryhttp://themeforest.net/item/openestate-responsive-real-estate-wordpress-theme/4711764
If anyone is looking for inspiration, I reckon you could make an absolute killing by targeting real estate sites in Asia (where I live), where the following functions would be immensely invaluable, and which I don’t yet think are covered by any existing themes:
- Huge chunks of the population are living in flats (apartment buildings), which means their street addresses are all going to be the same. Several flats per building. Can this be represented on a theme which uses Google Maps on the homepage to show locations of properties? A pin that could be several properties within the same building?- Related to the above, as many people are in the same area, an opportunity to review the building (e.g. management, facilities, transport links, environment…). E.g. http://community.gohome.com.hk/Tsing-Yi/Rambler-Crest/reviews/en/ And this estate’s review summary would show up in individual listings that are located on that estate.
- Properties can be available to rent and buy at the same time. Most if not all of the themes give you an option to rent or sell a property, but don’t allow both at the same time.
- Extra fields are always great. For example, here there is a requirement to list both net size and size of an apartment.
- Responsive sites. Many of the themes are already responsive, but I see hundreds of homeseekers roaming the streets with portable devices. Easy viewing of listings on mobile devices essential.
Anyway, just some thoughts! Could be a lot of potential customers waiting out there!
What is the status of this contest? How many spots are still available for the HTML templates?
